With an Amazon Prime membership, you can listen to a wide variety of Audible audiobooks even if you don’t have an Audible subscription. You have an opportunity to listen to about 50 different audiobooks at any time. However, since the audiobooks are available for free, you can’t download them, they are periodically rotated and you don’t get a warning when they are getting rotated. If you have an Amazon Prime membership and you wish to listen to Audible audiobooks for free on your Audible mobile app for either Apple, Android or windows, follow these steps:
Listen to Audible audiobooks on Apple devices
First, visit your app store and download the Audible Audio Books and Podcasts app. The app is free and the app developer will be listed as ‘Audible, Inc’.
Launch the app and sign in with your email address and password associated with your Amazon Prime Account. Eventually, you will arrive at your home screen and if you have never downloaded Audible books, the home screen will be empty.
In the rows that appear along the bottom of the screen, tap ‘Channels’. The icon resembles a clock face.
Scroll down until you arrive at a list. In the list, tap on ‘Audiobook Collections’ to see a wide variety of audiobooks.
Tap any of the collections and you will see the books that make up the collection you’ve chosen. Tap on one of the books and you will automatically start streaming the audiobook you’ve selected.
Listen to Audible audiobooks on the Windows app
If you’ve not installed the Audible Windows app, download the app from the Microsoft app store and install it.
Launch the app on your device and then sign in using the email and password associated with your Amazon Prime account. The app’s home screen will now open up on your device.
In the menu on the left, click ‘Channels for Prime’ and the appropriate screen will appear.
Scroll down and click on any of the collections. You will see a list of audiobooks that make up that collection. Click on any of the books that appear on these collections and you will instantly start streaming the audiobook.
