Audible is now available on Sonos speakers

Audible is now available on Sonos speakers”

Smart speakers from Amazon, Google, and Apple are incredibly popular right now, but even so, Sonos has managed to stay plenty relevant.

Sonos first pulled support for Audible back in 2016 after customers noticed that the client wasn't compatible with some leading speakers - including the Sonos One and Sonos Play: 5 - and it was unclear whether it would ever be coming back. You can also play the books directly from the Audible app.

If you're not currently an Audible subscriber, now's the flawless time to join.

Sonos says Alexa voice control to play Audible audiobooks "will follow", so that means users with a Sonos One will be able to use their voice to play audiobooks. Then choose the book you want to play and navigate the chapters or play forward or backward 30 seconds. The support was initially removed two years ago when Sonos staff discovered an incompatibility between Audible and Sonos integration after an update.

With all your data stored in the cloud, bookmarks are automatically carried over to the Sonos speakers, meaning you can carry on directly where you left off when jumping from another Audible-enabled device.

We're not seeing Audible as a service in the Sonos app in Canada yet, so this is definitely rolling out still. No news yet if it will expand to other territories as well.
