Google today released a Play Books app update that claims to improve performance and fix over 90 issues. However, that is not the big news, if you reside in India. Android users in India are now able to buy ebooks from India’s Google Play Store which was limited to Android apps and games until now.
As evident from the screenshot, Google is trying to promote the store by have a dedicated tab for books under Rs. 100. The store is also selling bestsellers like Fifty Shades of Grey, Hobbit, Game of Thrones, Life of Pi and lots more.
Price-wise, Google’s store is competitive but there are few books where you’d find it cheaper at other sources like Kindle or even Flipkart.com
