Google looks to add audiobooks, other content

The revamped Android Market, now known as Google Play may soon be inline to add audiobooks to its lineup of entertainment content. The advent of Google Play has seen Google consolidate its various movie, music, apps and e-books into one more easily navigable portal. The iTunes-like approach to unified content delivery looks set to expand to include audiobooks, if a discovery by the unofficial blog Google Operating System proves true.

The Google Play help center has been found to have a placeholder page set up for audiobooks. However, the e-book store section of Google Play does not include any audiobooks at present. The addition of the popular category would be a welcomed by users as the advent of portable media devices has accelerated the popularity of the format.

Google has also recently snapped up a range of web domains that also seems to indicate that the addition of audiobooks will soon be followed by magazines, newspapers and TV shows. Google, which users MarkMonitor to purchase its web domains has recently acquired googleplaynewspapers.com, googleplaymagazines.com and googleplaytv.com.
