Never able to find time to read books in the midst of your busy schedule? Or do you already love listening to audiobooks on the go?

Whichever it is, you’ll appreciate the launch of Google’s audiobook service through Google Play Store, available in 45 countries and 9 languages (English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Russian, Korean and Japanese). Over 100,000 audiobooks will be on offer, and can be enjoyed across multiple platforms and devices.

Here are 3 things about Google’s audiobook service to take note of:

Affordable and easy to use. Get a free preview of a single book you’re interested in and buy it at an affordable price without the need to pay for a subscription. Love the book? Share it with your family through Family Library for free.

Integrate with Google Assistant. Hands tied? Just tell Google Assistant to read the book to you. You can even set a timer for a 20-minute bedtime story by telling Google Assistant to stop playing in 20 minutes. This function, however, is currently only available on Android and in English.

Play across devices. You can pick up from where you left off the previous day on any device, with Google Assistant or Google Play Books app, so you don’t have to memorize the last part you stopped listening to.
