If you can’t get enough of audiobooks and have been relying on your smartphone or tablet, there is yet another viable option. Amazon has announced that Echo now has the capability to play audiobooks from Audible. It will pick up where you left off on another device and play it while you putter around the house, running errands.
Echo also supports Whispersync for Voice, which allows you to seamlessly switch between reading and listening with your eligible Kindle books. You can read on your Kindle, tablet, or smartphone and then continue listening on your Echo, right where you left off.
