Two months ago we launched audiobooks from Google Play to help you fit more books into your life. Today we have a few updates to make it even easier to enjoy a great book, whether you like to listen on the go with your phone or at home with the Google Assistant on Google Home.

  • Never lose your place with Smart Resume
  • Revisit your favorite moments with Bookmarks. 
  • Fit in more reading time with routines on the Google Assistant. 
  • Speed it up—or slow it way down—with greater speed controls. 
  • Share with Family Library in 13 new countries. 

These new features are rolling out starting today on Android, iOS, and on devices with the Google Assistant. Time to get back to my book. 


Google is really getting innovative with books glad to see books are alive and well.
