Audiobooks will now have their own section on the app and will be situated directly in users’ libraries next to ‘Songs’ and ‘Podcasts.’ In addition, Spotify audiobooks will be available for offline listening and will feature an automatic bookmarking function to ensure that users do not lose their place in their books. Of course, the new audiobook offering from Spotify arrives as a direct challenge to Audible, a leading audiobook app that has dominated the market for quite some time.
“We’re excited to launch audiobooks with a brand-new user interface that’s geared specifically [towards] listening to audiobooks and fits them seamlessly alongside the music and podcasts you already listen to and love,” said Spotify executive Nir Zicherman.
