Play Audible Books On Your Amazon Echo

The Amazon Echo is a great device for accessing content using a Prime membership. But the Echo is also useful for media that isn’t sourced from Prime. One of these is Audible, which makes sense, given that Audible is owned by Amazon. I found that my Audible account was around beforeĀ it was linked to an Amazon account with Prime. In order to link the account, I needed to open the Alexa website and link my Audible account. To do so, open http://alexa.amazon.com. Then click on Music & Books in the sidebar.

Once authenticated, you’ll see a list of books from your Audible account. Screen Shot 2016-05-28 at 10.24.29 PM Now, it’s as easy as telling Alexa to start playing the book. In this example, e’ll say “Alexa, play Startup CEO from Audible.” Viola, the book begins. Enjoy.
