Google eBooks offline mode for Chrome and Chromebooks

Google's latest addition to eBooks gives it a greater usability letting you search through the library, pick a book and then take it on the go...

 

Google eBooks can now be viewed offline thanks to an app available via the Chrome Web Store and also on Chromebooks letting you read any of Google's collection without a internet connection.

The new feature was announced via the Google eBooks blog and has revealed that you'll now be able to pick a book and once it's been opened you'll be able to then read it offline.

All it takes is the app via the Chrome Web Store and then activating the functionality and you can then read away, the feature will also come as standard on Chromebooks running Google's young Chrome OS.

What this means is users now have access to over 3,000,000 eBooks, firmly putting it above both Amazon's collection and iTunes both of which have 1,000,000 and 700,000 respectively.
