Supported reading devices

Smartphones and tablets. You can download and install the Google Play Books reading app for free on smartphones and tablets. Check the Reading on your Android device page or Reading on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad page for compatibility requirements.

Web browsers. You can read books purchased from Google Play on any browser with JavaScript enabled. Learn more about the Web Reader.

eReader devices. Books on Google Play can also be read with any dedicated eBook reader that supports the Adobe eBook platform, including the Barnes & Noble Nook™ and Readers™ from Sony. See the full list of Adobe eBook Platform supported devices.

Chromebook users: Please note that Google's Chromebook only supports web applications, and is not compatible with Adobe Digital Editions software. This means you will not be able to transfer files from a Chromebook to an eReader at this time - though you can easily read your books in the browser via our web app.

Amazon Kindle. Books on Google Play are not currently compatible for uploading to Amazon Kindle devices. However, you can read books on Google Play on any device with a JavaScript-enabled browser using the Web Reader.
