Sonos had previously supported Audible audiobooks on its wireless speakers, but according to its help pages that feature stopped working after an update in late 2015.
Now audiobook support has returned, this time courtesy of Audiobooks.com. The audiobook retailer announced on Wednesday that customers can listen to their favorite title in every room of their homes and offices.
And while we’re on the topic, you can also listen to them in cars and and on Apple TV: This collaboration with Sonos is in addition to Audiobooks.com’s availability on Android Auto, CarPlay, tvOS, and select GM, Jaguar and Land Rover infotainment systems.
This integration went into beta in late 2016, and now that the test was successful the feature is being rolled out to all Sonos owners.
“Sonos shares in our vision of using technology to create great listening experiences, so this was a natural partnership,” says Ian Small, Audiobooks.com’s CEO. “Since more and more of our customers are using connected technology in their homes, we wanted to provide them with the opportunity to enjoy audiobooks in that space using the Sonos platform.”
To stream Audiobooks.com audiobooks on Sonos, customers need to select ‘Add Music Services’ from any Sonos controller app, scroll down to the Audiobooks.com icon, and login to their account.
