9to5Google reports that a banner seems to have shown up for users using the mobile Google Play app and the desktop version. With audiobooks coming soon, the Google Play Store will expand its media offerings, which now include apps, TV show, movies, music, and digital books.

In Music Section, Play Store has got a number of useful audio books for the users.

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. If you don't have time to read a book, there's always audiobooks for when you're driving, commuting, or doing other stuff at home. For now, the Banner Ads of Google Play Store's Audiobooks present a 404 error page while visiting the given URL of the ads.

Taking a leaf out of Audible's book (no pun intended), Google will allow users to listen to a sample chapter of an audiobook, before informing them that the rest of the book must be purchased to continuing listening, as outlined in the string below.

The doctor also said he administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA ), at Trump's request, and the president aced it. But the USA president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Trump.

The Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Voyage models, meanwhile, now do not support Audible, as confirmed by Audible's help center. It would be logical for the company to move all the audiobooks to the Google Play Store. However, the section is not live yet and there is no specific mention of when the content will be available for purchase for the masses.

We don't know what Google is actually planning or when the audiobooks would available on the platform but if the new feature is added to Google Play Store then the search giant could possibly have a huge impact on the audiobook market. As such, fans are advised to stay tuned for more updates.
