Now you can get your Alexa-powered smart speaker to play your Audible audiobooks

If you have an Amazon Alexa speaker and love listening to the massive selection of audiobooks from Audible you can now hear those books just by asking anywhere in your home.

So whether you’re relaxing, cooking or cleaning you can easily pick up where you left off in your audiobook using simple commands.

To play a book in your library you simply say: “Alexa, read (the name of the book in your library).

If you want to pause or resume your audiobook you can say “Alexa, pause” or “Alexa, resume my book”.

And it’s also just as easy to skip forward or backwards 30 seconds at a time by saying “Alexa, go back” or “Alexa go forward”.

You will always be right where you left off whether you’re hearing the book through Alexa and the Audible app.

And throw in WhisperSync for Voice, you can also switch between listening to more than 30,000 compatible audiobooks to reading them in the Kindle app or on a Kindle e-reader.

There are more than 200,000 audiobooks to choose from in the Audible library including the latest bestsellers, biographies and non-fiction titles.

Amazon has released a range of Echo speakers this year with Alexa onboard so you find information, play music, play your audiobooks and use some of the many Alexa skills including ordering a pizza and checking your bank balance.
