Google Play Books Gets An Update Designed For Comic Book Fans
Great news for coming book fans!
Google Play Books is getting an upgrade that will bring new features – reading coming books on the smartphone will be easier than ever before.
The features will become available on Android first, but they’ll be soon available on iOS as well.
In a post shared on Android official blog, Greg Hartrell, Senior Product Manager of Google Play Books wrote:
“Reading a comic book is all about following the story and enjoying the art, dialogue and pace the way you want. But navigating a comic can be tricky on a small phone or tablet screen.”
“So, we’re introducing a new vertical scrolling experience for comics in landscape mode. Flip your device on its side and you can easily scroll through the story with quick vertical swipes.”
Users will now be able to find new comics and series with ease. These great additions will be celebrated next week with free comics.
In the next few days, new features will roll out to Android users in the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Ireland and Singapore.
