Waze has today announced that Audible has joined its Audio Player Program, allowing drivers to enjoy premium audio storytelling in the car. Waze drivers with an Audible membership can access a catalogue of over 600,000 Audible Originals, audiobooks, podcasts, and other audio programs.
As an Audible member, you can listen on Waze by simply opening the Waze app and tapping the music note icon to select Audible as their audio player. You will also receive next turn directions from Waze inside the Audible app.
“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,” said Audible VP Derek Murphy.
“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.”
The Audible integration for Waze Audio Player will begin rolling out from today.
