Now playing: Mac users get a new version of Apple’s iBooks book reader, but Google’s still holding onto its title for Mac usersNow playing: How Google will bring Macs closer to the Mac lineup in the futureWith Google’s acquisition of the Apple Store, Apple will now sell its own e-book software directly to developers and publishers alike.
But with Google now owning the book publisher’s e-reader, Google will have the opportunity to sell its new Google Books app on iOS and macOS.
That will be a boon to those who don’t want to purchase their own apps for Apple’s platform, but still want to read on iOS devices.
For those of you who want to install Google Books on iOS but don’t know how to do so, Google’s new ebook app has been available for Macs for a while now.
But now, it has a new name: Google Books.
And it’s free.
