Listening to stories is a common habit throughout the ages. In the age of modern technology, there are a variety of applications that enable users to listen to a wide range of audiobooks on their smartphones. Now, tech giant Apple has teamed up with popular audiobook service Audible to enhance the Apple Watch user experience.
You can now use your Apple Watch to stream and download audiobooks directly from Audible Library. This means that customers do not need to sync their audiobooks to their iPhone and can continue to enjoy them when they go for a morning jog or walk.
To listen to their favorite Audible audiobook using Apple Watch speakers or Bluetooth earphones and headphones, users just have to sync their Apple Watch with the Audible app. The Cupertino-based company calls its newly introduced feature “Broadcast without a phone.” Users can download offline audiobooks to the internal memory of the Apple Watch via the mobile app, and access the Audible collection with just one click on their Apple Watch.
It will start downloading the content in the background as soon as you start streaming, allowing you to enjoy it offline. This feature is useful if you are about to board a plane but still want to continue listening to your playlist. Plus, Audible continues to sync seamlessly across all your devices, allowing customers to pick up where they left off on any one of them, whether it’s an iPhone or an Alexa device, without skipping a word. Moreover, there is an option to control the narration speed and a preference where you can choose the broadcast only option.
Before you can listen to Audible titles, you must make sure that your Apple Watch is synced with your iPhone. Once your hearing aid has been successfully paired, follow these steps listed below to start listening to Audible audiobooks:
