Amazon has been working on improving the audiobook capabilities of its Kindle e-readers.

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. Whenever that is. Google Play will also have a huge opportunity to capture a large share of the market just seeing how many Android users there are around the globe.

Google now offers apps, games, movies, TV shows, music, e-books, and magazines via the Google Play Store.

According to report in 9to5Google, Google on Friday ran a promotional banner announcing the arrival of the audiobooks in the Play Store.

Tonight a banner has appeared on Google Play for most users which simply states that audiobooks are now available on Google Play. Based on the speculation, we expect the launch before the end of Q1 2017. From our point of view, the audiobooks on Google Play Store will set new benchmarks not only for reading enthusiasts but also book lovers. Fans will be hoping that a dedicated section of the audiobooks would provide them with more options and variety to choose from.

There would be plenty of benefits you would get once the giant introduces a complete dedicated Audiobooks section on the Play Store. This clears that the giant will definitely going to add Audiobooks section to the Play Store as the ads are already live on some user's website and mobile apps.

The Audiobooks advertising banner on Play Store itself looks very reasonable to assume that the Audiobooks on Play Store will be the reality soon. It might also mean that not all countries would have access to the new segment from the start. We don't have any specifics right now, but a recent tear-down of the Google Play Books by The Android Soul suggests that the Play Books app is also gearing up to bring the audiobooks integration.
