App Reviews

  • Not even close to Audible

    By Ryan_E Reviews
    I wanted to like Google when I heard they entered the audiobook market but their selection, quality, and overall app experience has nothing on Audible. Good try, but no thanks.
  • Volume control!

    By raneem.bye
    Can you PLEASE add the feature where you can turn pages with the volume button? or maybe by clicking on the margins of the page?? Also can you add a feature where you can import books from the iBooks app to the Play Books app?
  • Da best except for two things

    By Roblox Professional Gamer
    This is the best except when my mom wants to get a book she has to go to her computer and it takes more than 30 min!!! I will give you a 5/5 stars IF you can press that when it says “end of sample” so you can buy it and it’s really frustrating for my mom!!! And it always get stuck on the loading screen and on my side of my WiFi bar (and my WiFi bar is max) it will always get stuck! And if you fix this I’ll give you 5/5 stars
  • Terrible

    By drummerbronx
    I highlighted information I needed to share at a meeting.It was all gone.This is supposed to be Google. Terrible,Terrible,Terrible. Terrible,Terrible instead of 5 Stars . I would not recommend to anyone.
  • Accessibility

    By PasMaj
    When using the app with a screen reader, which requires switching to flowing text, the pages will not turn. Users must completely log out of the book and log back in to progress to the next page.
  • Can’t share items

    By BabaNoosh301
    We recently moved from exchange to google. We are unable to share documents with Play Books. This was a useful feature that I can’t seem to consolidate.
  • Speak screen app unresponsive

    By Vidy1983
    When I leverage the accessibility feature in iOS of “speak screen” the app reads the current page but then becomes unresponsive at the end of the page. The only way to revive the App is by killing it first and then restarting it. This needs to work like other e-book applications like Kindle and iBooks work to speak screen should be able to turn pages and continue reading. Play books used to be my favorite app but no more.
  • Google play book

    By Jslg09072002
    Google play book is not working on iPhone 6s
  • Poor interface

    By E Whipple
    This is adequately usable, but the reading experience is inferior to both of the major competitors. Also desperately needs a way to organize books.
  • Translate working again. Thank you!

    By B'nuts
    My rating is back to 5 stars. Love the functionality. It’s not spartan by any means, and all its features work without any glitches. Thank you for helping a nearly fluent Spanish speaker read in his second language once again. It can’t be more appreciated.
