Today, it's the turn of Google Play Books, and while the update to Version 3.4.5 doesn't seem much on paper, they are still very much welcome, especially if you're a frequent or heavy user of the app. There are slight changes to the translation interface, a change in the default font, and a hint of a useful feature that will hopefully come in the future.
