Today Google has announced a new offline feature they have added to their Google eBooks service, that allows user to now ready eBooks without the need for an Internet connection. The new features uses Google Chromes browser to support the offline features and enables users to read your Google eBooks in your Chrome browser or on your Chromebook.
In order to be able to read your Google eBooks offline, you’ll need to install the Google Books app from Google’s Chrome Web Store and ensure your Google eBooks are available to read offline.
“We’ve all been there: the Internet is suddenly down, and you can’t keep on reading your ebook to see what the character decides to do next. Or you’re about to head to the airport and want to be able to dive into a newly-purchased ebook during a long flight. We’re excited to make it easier for readers to access their Google eBooks on the go — whether you’re online or offline!”
Unfortunately currently the Google eBooks service is only available to US residents.
