Audible Brings Social Sharing to its Android App

24114529683_abce14f963_hAudible rolled out an update to its Android app on Friday which added a few tweaks.

In addition to the usual bug fixes and other updates, Audible improved its channel feature and started syncing the "finish" status across devices.

But the most notable feature in this update is Audible Clips.

Initially launched with the iPad, iPhone, and Windows apps earlier this year, Audible Clips lets listeners share clips of the audiobook they're listening to. Conceptually, it works very similar to the way you might share a bit of text, and it lets users share clips as long as 45 seconds.

Here's what one of those clips looks like when shared to Twitter:

You can find the app in Google Play.

Here's the changelog:

  • Introducing Clips: Now you can create clips of your favorite audiobook passages for later, listening or sharing with friends!
  • Channels content is now organized better than ever! Start listening to our premium short-form content including ad-free podcasts, news, comedy, exclusive shows and more.
  • The status of a title marked as “Finished” will begin to sync across all your Android devices.
  • Resolved playback issues faced by some users after downloading a title.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
