Amazon Echo Now Reads Audible Books

Amazon Echo logo
Is there anything the Amazon Echo can't do?

We'll, yes.  But it is learning new tricks all of the time.

Now Amazon Echo will read Audible books to you.  And Amazon Echo also supports Whispersync for Voice so you can switch between reading and listening Kindle Unlimited books.

Listening to an audiobook is easy.

  • To listen to an audiobook, just say "Alexa, read <Audible Book Title>".
  • To pause an audiobook, just say "Alexa, pause".
  • To resume the current book you're reading by saying "Alexa, resume my book".
  • To control the playback say "Alexa, go back" or "Alexa, go forward"
Note, in these examples the <Wake Word> is "Alexa" but you can change it to "Amazon" by changing the wake word in the Echo app settings.
