Google has updated its Google Play Books app, adding support for both rental books and textbooks, which were added today to the Google Play Store.
Textbooks can be rented or purchased via the website, and then accessed in the iOS app itself. Once added to a personal book list on the website, the textbooks will show up in the app, though they will be displayed in the same section as regular books.
In addition to support for textbooks, the Google Play Books update also brings highlighting and note-taking for scanned pages, a sepia reading mode, and stability and performance improvements.
