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

There's no indication of when Google is actually planning to push audiobooks live in the store, but it definitely seems like it will be soon. Back in November, references to Audiobooks were found by Android Police in an APK teardown of the Google Play app, which means the company is likely to lay the groundwork for an audiobook store.

Offering a clearer way to browse and buy audiobooks would help Google in its ongoing rivalry with Amazon, which owns Audible and recently added audiobook support to its Kindles. As reported by 9to5Google, a banner has appeared in the Books section of the app, mentioning a 50 percent off on your first purchase to celebrate the arrival.

Soon there will be a dedicated audiobook section in Google Play

Google Play's music library does host a selection of audiobooks, but the implementation has always felt a little sloppy.

All that remains is for Google to flip the switch on its end and you'll be able to feed your audiobook obsession through Google Play.
