Do you have Gmail? Play Books app is all you need to enjoy ebooks and audiobooks on your iPad

1. Download Google Play Books app from the App Store.
2. Use your Gmail credentials to login in.
3. Start enjoying ebooks and audiobooks.

Google Play Books app is a great option to try for everyone who is a dedicated user of Google services or has just switched from an Android-powered tablet or smartphone.

After launching audiobooks in the Google Play Store in January 2018, Google’s iOS reading application is now an all-in-one tool for digesting different kinds of digital content: ebooks, audiobooks, textbooks, or comic books.

The book and audiobook catalog of Google Play Store is not as massive as Amazon & Audible, but it’s larger than iBooks. A significant benefit is that you can buy audiobooks one by one – there is no need to buy the subscription.

If before you were using Google Play Books on Android, download the iOS app to your iPad and iPhone, sign in with your Google or Gmail credentials, and all your previous content should begin to sync.

Audiobooks are synced as well. You can start listening to an audiobook in a browser on your laptop, and continue from the last location in your Play Books app on your iPad. I’ve tested it on a free audiobook from Google Play Store, and it works beautifully.

Good news for those who love listening to audiobooks in their car is that Google Play Books app lets you control audiobooks directly via CarPlay.
