Earlier this month Google released a significant update to Google Play Books that greatly improved the comic book reading experience within the eBook reading app. Basically that update brought a much improved reading of comics that allows you in landscape mode to quickly and easily move between panels and follow the story line. Today another update has come out for the app that further improves the user experience when reading comics, especially when you are moving between books in a series.
The update to Google Play Books is build 3.7.23 for those keeping score at home and is now in the Google Play Store. If you have the app already installed on your device, you should see the OTA update in the next day or so. If you are a reader of comics then you should certainly get this update installed quickly.
