If you have an Amazon Echo speaker in your home, you can use it to listen to any book you have downloaded from Audible, and you can control the experience entirely with your voice.

That means you can choose which book to read, even right down to the chapter, while your hands are busy cooking, cleaning, or curled up behind your head.

Once you have downloaded books from an Audible account linked to your Amazon account and you have the Alexa app set up on your phone, enjoying an Audible book on Alexa couldn’t be much easier.

How to play Audible Books on Alexa

1. Open the Amazon Alexa app on your iPhone or Android and tap the word “Play” at the bottom of the screen.

2. Scroll down to the “AUDIBLE LIBRARY” section and tap the book you want to hear.

3. On the menu that pops up, tap the Echo device to which you wish to stream the book.

Or to save time, you can simply say, for example: “Alexa, read Remembrance of Things Past.” This is assuming you have 20 hours free in which to listen to Proust, of course.
