This week, Spotify began offering Spotify Audiobooks to all of its subscribers in the United States. As a result of the new functionality, you will be able to purchase audiobooks and then listen to them on Spotify, meaning that you will only need to use one platform for all of your listening needs. There is a separate cost associated with each individual audiobook. If you want to buy an audiobook through Spotify, you will first be taken to a web browser to complete the transaction, and then you will be brought back to the app. The Audiobooks part of Spotify is where you should go if you want to browse different titles; all you have to do is navigate to that section.
You can locate it by going to the “Search” page and selecting “Browse all.” There, you will find a list of all of the audiobooks that are suggested by Spotify. You can search for titles in the same manner as you search for albums or podcasts. Another search option is to search for artists. In the event that you have not yet purchased an audiobook, a lock will display next to the play button. This will serve as a reminder that you must first purchase the book in order to be able to listen to it. This post will walk you through the steps of purchasing an audiobook on Spotify so that you may listen to it.
