The Bubble Zoom feature will zoom into speech bubbles in comic books as users tap. The feature allows users to read comics one-handed, as speech bubbles are automatically identified and expanded for them to read.
In a blog post, Greg Hartrell, head of product for Google Play Books, commented:
Rolling out today, you can upgrade Play Books and provide feedback on supported comic volumes in the application, as this exclusive experience is only the first step. As we continue to teach our machines to read more comic book styles, our goal is to eventually bring Bubble Zoom to all the comics and manga ever made.
