View a Location

If the book you’re reading mentions a location and you want to find out more about it, the Play Books app shows you some brief information about the location and gives you the opportunity to learn more about that location.

  1. Tap the location word in the book. In this example, I’ll tap the word London in the book, as shown in Figure 3.

    Figure 3

    Figure 3 The pop-up box shows a brief description of London on the left and a map of London on the right.

  2. The pop-up Location window appears at the bottom of the screen.
  3. The London description is from the Wikipedia website. You can read the entire description on Wikipedia by tapping Wikipedia below the description. Before you can read the description, you need to select the web browser app you want to use (Internet or Chrome).
  4. Search for results about London in Google by tapping Search at the lower-left corner of the window (refer to Figure 3).
  5. Shrink the Location window by tapping anywhere on the book page; close the Location window by tapping anywhere on the book page a second time.
