How to get Audible on your Google Home device in 2 ways

Google Home smart speaker reading
  • You can't get Audible on a Google Home device natively, but there are two workarounds for playing titles from the audiobook app on your smart speaker.
  • You can get Audible on your Google Home speaker by pairing it with your phone through Bluetooth or casting your Audible app from your Android phone. 
  • Make sure all your devices are on the same network when you are pairing your mobile device to your Google Home speaker.

Audible brings you the latest titles and popular podcasts, ensuring you have hands-free access to your favorite stories and storytellers while you work out, run errands, or put the kids to bed. While Audible lets you listen on your laptop or phone, you can also connect it with Google's smart speaker and home assistant.
Because the Amazon-owned Audible doesn't have an app for Google Home, you'll need to either pair your Audible app with the speaker using Bluetooth, or, if you have an Android phone, you can cast your audiobooks through the Google Home app.
Before you do either, make sure your Google Home speaker and smartphone are connected to the same network. You'll also want to make sure the "Microphone" permission on your Android phone is turned on in your Google Play app. You can do this by opening the app, opening the "Permissions" menu and toggling the "Microphone" option on.
Here are two ways you can listen to Audible on your Google Home device.
