Stream and Download Titles with Just One Tap on the Apple Watch

The interface of the Audible app on an Apple Watch is displayed on a blue background with covers of Audible Originals floating around it.

Listening to Audible on an Apple Watch just got easier. Now listeners can access their library and stream and download titles without having to sync with an iPhone.

Whether stepping out the door for a morning jog, at the dog park or running errands, users can begin streaming a riveting listen with just one wrist tap. Seamless synching across devices means they can switch to listening on an Alexa device or phone once home without losing their place. And it’s easy to adjust to a preferred narration speed while on the move.

The update is one of many ways Audible’s tech teams are working to create an even more personalized, accessible listening experience for our customers.

Here are the highlights:

Phone-free streaming: Whether listening on paired Bluetooth headphones or speakers, one tap on a title in the Audible library will have it begin streaming and downloading immediately on an Apple Watch—no need to tether to an iPhone.

Flexible and personalized: Once streaming, content simultaneously downloads in the background for offline listening. There’s also a streaming-only option in settings, plus narration speed control.

Synch across devices: Seamless synching means users can pick up right where they left off, regardless of which device they’re using, without missing a word.
