When using Google Play Books as your primary e-book reader, you may want to take notes, do some highlighting and keep a few bookmarks. Despite the reference points, it can be hard to keep track of everything you've marked when you need to use it for a larger project. As a solution, Google has added the ability to sync your notations to Google Drive, which makes them much more manageable. Here's how to set it up:
- Open the Google Play Books app and tap the hamburger menu in the top left-hand corner, then choose Settings.
- Scroll down and tap Save notes, highlights, and bookmarks in Google Drive.
- Give the folder a name, or leave the default one where your items will be saved. Check the box and then press OK.
Note: Syncing may not start working until you receive an email confirming that the feature has been enabled.
The result is an easy-to-read document (seen above), titled "Notes from '[novel/document]" that you can copy and build upon for a larger project. What do you think of this new syncing feature? Share your thoughts in the comments!
