Google has issued an update to its official Play Books application today, effectively bringing a duo of powerful new features to word-hungry readers. Users can now listen to the entirety of most of their textual books through the application’s new “Read Aloud” utility. While we wouldn’t recommend using it for a long period of time (it sounds like the voice on your car’s GPS), it certainly seems to do the job.
Along with a slew of bug fixes, pinch to zoom and double tap to zoom are present in the newest version. Google has also incorporated a fresh personalized recommendations menu at the conclusion of the user’s library, offering up a quick glance at what other similar titles are available.
