Its additional capabilities are:

  • Integration with the Google APIs Console
  • Library support for multiple programming languages

The new JSON structure makes accessing this information easier. The API can be used on a web page, in a Chrome extension, or on a device to access the selection of ebooks in the Google Books collection.
