Sonos To Stream Amazon-Owned ‘Audible’ Audiobooks, Again
Sonos has [accidentally] revealed it will support Audible audiobook streaming once again, after incompatibilities were discovered two years ago following a new update.
Audiobook provider, Audible, is a subsidiary of e-commerce behemoth Amazon.
As discovered by Android Police, Sonos “erroneously” posted a release to its announcement page, only to be deleted shortly afterwards.
“It’s rare to block out your unending to-do list and take a minute to just relax with a good book. But if time is a luxury, then so is reading. We think there’s something wrong with that, which is why we’re excited to announce that Audible is now available on Sonos”.
According to The Verge, Sonos has not provided a specific timeline on when the functionality will roll out to its speakers.
In the now deleted press release, Audible is offering Sonos users two credits, if they sign up for a 30-day free trial. Miles Davis’ autobiography is also added as an extra incentive.
Sonos’ One speakers are compatible with Amazon’s Alexa and Amazon Music in the United States.
The company previously announced that Alexa integration for its One speakers in Australia, is scheduled for later this year.
