Google Play Books for Android just got a smaller update that could be pretty nice for some users. The changelog on the update is a bit strange though. Google Play Books has had the option to read books aloud for a while now, but that is listed as a new feature here. The real new feature though is having the option for "High-quality voice" when using the read aloud feature.
The trouble with the read aloud feature is that the only option for it is to have it automatically start reading aloud if you have accessibility turned on. It would be much nicer if there were simply a toggle to have it start reading aloud whenever you want.
