Waze, the navigation app powered by the community, has added Audible to its Audio Player Program to make it even easier for drivers to be entertained and informed on the go with an audiobook.
Audible on Waze now makes it even possible for Audible members to access their own library of purchased audiobooks but also the catalogue of more than 400,000 audiobooks, podcast and other original audio programs.
Audible users can listen on Waze by opening the Waze app and tapping the music note icon to choose Audible as their audio player.
Now members will be able to enjoy their audio content while using the Waze app.
They will also be able to receive their next turn directions from Waze within the Audible app.
“We are very excited to kick off 2021 by welcoming Audible into the Audio Player family,” said Adam Fried, Head of Global Partnerships at Waze.
“Audible is such a beloved brand with a huge catalogue of content and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it straight to their drives.
“Our users have already driven over 100 billion kilometers while listening to content from streaming services on our Audio Player, and we can’t wait to bring this experience to even more users thanks to our collaboration with Audible.”
Audible is the latest streaming service to integrate with Waze using the Waze Audio Kit.
Audible integration has already begun rolling out to users.
Waze encourages all users to when their mobile only when permitted by law and to avoid using your device while moving and to not let it distract you from driving.
“We’re delighted to be able to offer our members around the world a new way to access Audible,” said Derek Murphy, VP, Business Development at Audible.
“Whether you’re listening to the latest Audible Original or catching up on a recent best-seller, Audible on Waze allows you to seamlessly enjoy audio content that entertains, inspires and informs you.”
