Listening to audiobooks is a popular use for smart speakers like the Google Home and Amazon  Alexa.

Amazon owns leading audiobook company Audible, which isn’t offered on the Google Home.

Google Play Books product management head Greg Hartrell notes that users can “buy a single audiobook at an affordable price, with no commitments.”

Audible does allow single audiobook purchases but is more known for its $14.95 monthly subscription service, which comes with one free download and a 30% discount on purchases.

Audiobooks purchased through Google can be accessed on the web through Google Play Books, in the apps for Android or iOS devices, and in Assistant-enabled smart speakers.
