How does Audible work? Updated guide on the Audible membership

The largest producer and seller of downloadable audiobooks globally is Audible, an on-demand audiobook and podcast service from Amazon. As with all the areas, branches and industries, Amazon aims to lead the market.

The audio content is booming. After the rise of visually based (social) media and the spread of the online video, audio is here to stay. The truth is that thanks to this rise of audio, some technological giants joined the supply of audio content.

Here you will find everything you need to know about Audible membership. Let’s get started.

How much does Audible really cost?

You can use Audible for free for the first 30 days. After this free trial period, you can choose between two Audible subscriptions. You may consider how many books you want to obtain and how much you would like to spend:
