Amazon Echo, the company’s voice-activated assistant of sorts, can now read audiobooks to you thanks to newly implemented Audible support. If you have a little library of ebooks piled up in your Audible account, you can get started by saying, “Alexa, play the audiobook 50 Shades of Grey.”¬†

To celebrate this most joyous occasion, Echo owners can grab two free audiobooks from Audible for listening. All you need to do is download the Audible app.

How It Works

  • Start any book you own with “Alexa, read [Audible book title]”
  • Resume the current book you’re reading by saying “Alexa, read my book.”
  • Control playback with “Alexa, go back/forward.”

And that’s it. If you have an Echo, go make Alexa read you War and Peace. On that same note, does anyone here own an Echo?
