Google has released an updated version of the Google Play Books application for Android. Some of the biggest complaints with this application were the lack of dictionary, note taking and highlighting abilities and Google has addressed all of them in this update.
As you can guess, you can now add highlights to the text and take notes while reading books. There is also a built-in dictionary now, so you can quickly look up a word.
Other additions include ‘Places’ info cards, translation, sepia mode and sliding page-turn animation. Lastly there are the usual bug fixes. It seems you still can’t open PDF files on your device using the app, which is sad.
