Google Play slashes prices on apps, music, and books for ‘Longest Day of the Year’ sale

Google Play is offering a spontaneous collection of deals today for apps, music, and books through its “Longest Day of the Year” sale.

Today is more commonly known as “Summer Solstice” for the Northern Hemisphere, which is when the longest period of daylight occurs, and Google is celebrating by slashing prices. A slew of popular apps are now just 99 cents each, “beach reads” are $1.99 a piece, and many famous albums are marked at $2.99 a title.

A selection of the discounted apps includes Draw Something and Shazam Encore, while albums span everything from the Rolling Stones’ “Brussels Affair” to Rihanna’s “Loud.” Books are more sparse, however, with “Endure” by Carrie Jones and “Summer Days” by Susan Mallery. But, hey—a deal is a deal.

Google has confirmed with Search Engine Land that the company is currently testing new a ‘sources’ display inside of Search.

The section also pulls in song information, in Rihanna’s case.

In most instances while searching on Google you want to find definite information — fast. Google has implemented similar features inside of Search for weather, sports, math calculations, and more. Keep ’em coming!
