The company is up and down the business-to-consumer (B2C) and B2B (B1B) spectrum, and it recently went through a series of mergers to grow its operations and broaden its product offerings.
But it’s still unclear what exactly it will look like once it finally launches.
The company’s chief financial officer told investors last month that the company was aiming to have a new website up and running sometime this year.
However, that was before it started adding new services like a “live” chat platform, a new version of the mobile app, and an “Uber for books” platform that would let users order books and rent movies through its app.
The $8 billion acquisition of Amazon’s Kindle division was the latest sign that Google’s business in books is gaining traction.
In November, the company agreed to buy digital book distributor Audible for $450 million.
And last year, Amazon bought rival Penguin Random House for $1.2 billion.
The company announced it would sell its $100 million stake in the company last week.
