Reports circulated yesterday claiming Google is set to launch audio books, magazines and journals under its new Google Play service after the Internet giant slipped and included the respective categories within the Google Play Help Center.

With that said, the Audio Books sections are no longer listed in the Google Play Help Center. This link previously routed people to the Audio Books page, but now it is a generic Help page. [The screenshot to the right depicts what was formerly witnessed.] It seems Google was quick to fix the blunder.

Google Play apparently included an empty “Audio Books” page when it launched on Tuesday. There were also two subgenres appearing with a similar name in the Help Center called “audio books” and “audiobooks.” The discovery of these sections confused many, because Google’s eBookstore does not currently sell audio books.
