One of Alexa’s most popular features is her ability to play Audible audiobooks, and keep them synced up with other devices so you can listen during your commute or lunch hour, then pick up right where you left off when you get home. Just give your mobile device a few minutes to connect to your WiFi network at home, so it can update Amazon’s servers with your current location in the book, and you’re good to go. Audiobooks are perfect for multitasking, too. Amazon makes it easy to try Audible at no risk by beginning every new subscription with their Try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks offer (Amazon UK customers click here)—and you get to keep those two books, even if you decide to cancel your subscription before the first monthly subscription fee is charged!
