Audiobooks are the fastest growing segment in digital publishing and audiobooks.com is at the forefront of integrating their extensive library of titles in nonconventional ways. The company offers streaming capabilities on tvOS, Sonos, CarPlay, Android Auto, and select infotainment systems in GM, Land Rover and Jaguar. Today, audiobooks.com has just introduced full support for the Apple iWatch and Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches.
Apple Watch and Android Wear smartwatch users can now:
- Launch the Audiobooks.com app from their smartwatch
- Browse and listen to any audiobook in their My Books library
- Access controls for play, pause, forward, rewind and volume
This announcement follows the recent Wear 2.0 version update for Android, with which Audiobooks.com is fully compatible when coupled with the mobile app.
