Google has pushed an update to the Play Books application for Android that includes an all-new ‘skim’ mode that makes it easier to quickly flip through a book. Google says the feature is designed with reference books in mind, allowing readers to quickly flip through the book to find specific sections, notes, or highlights.

The update also includes support for quick bookmarking that makes it easier to quickly jump between different sections of a book. Of course, the focus on reference materials fits nicely with the app’s existing notes and highlighting features, which can be browsed more easily in the new version.

You can grab the updated Google Play Books app for free from the Play Store.
