Further reports indicate that aside from expanding the capabilities of the Google Play Store, this move to include audiobooks is expected to go head to head against Amazon's market, especially the two tech giants are in the middle of a war on smart devices.

While audiobooks have actually been available on Google Play's music library, there wasn't a specific hub for all those that are already available. For the unintended, audiobooks are an exact word-for-word version of books, which allows users to listen to them on a music player, smartphone etc. The teardown also reveals that Google will bring several new features and it will help users to distinguish between audiobooks and ebooks.

Meanwhile, previous reports that appeared in the month of November from Android Police stated that they had found references to Audiobooks in an APK teardown of the Google Play app. The banner reads "Audiobooks are now on Google Play".

According to reports, the banner that promoted the decision to add audiobooks to the Google Play Store appeared a few days ago.

There would be plenty of benefits you would get once the giant introduces a complete dedicated Audiobooks section on the Play Store.

From that banner we can also see that a 50% discount on the first title that you Audio Book purchase you make on Google Play may come with the launch.

Besides, sales of audiobooks seem to have gone up in recent years, and Google having its own dedicated storefront will give it some ground to capture if not all but some portion of sales.

The Audiobooks advertising banner on Play Store itself looks very reasonable to assume that the Audiobooks on Play Store will be the reality soon. The users will be easily navigate to Audiobooks and can keep a track of their purchases and other useful things right from one single place. Did you expect this from Google? As such, fans are advised to stay tuned for more updates.
