Google Play Books Goes Live In India
By on February 28th, 2013

Earlier today, Google’s Play Books service went live for Android users in India. Play Books will allow users to purchase and read eBooks right on their Android device.

The whole Play Books service is tied with the Play Store itself, thus if you have already added your Credit or Debit card details to your Google Wallet, you are all set to start buying eBooks from the Play Store.

The Play Book does have a vast library of eBooks available including some of the classics and nearly all the books from Indian authors. While users can grab some of the Books for cheap on Play Books compared to say Flipkart’s eBook service, some books are comparatively much costlier than their print edition.

It is quite surprising that Google launched the Play Books service first in India, and not its other two popular Play Services – Music and Movies. Hopefully, it will also launch Play Music and Movies in India soon.

Apple’s iTunes Music store went live in India back in December last year and allows you to buy music and rent or purchase movies directly.
