We all know the Amazon Echo can be used to listen to music, set reminders, and make grocery lists, but have you ever considered it for audiobooks?
Hello everybody, I’m Nick, a Technology Solutions Specialist at Nuvera TechTrends. Welcome to Nick’s Picks, where I will review a product you can buy at TechTrends, and give you tips on how to use it.
A product I really love is the Amazon Echo.
The Echo is a smart speaker that helps you with daily tasks, like playing music, making grocery lists, and catching up on the news and weather.
But did you know that your Echo can also read you audiobooks, using the voice of a real person, and not the robotic voice that Alexa uses?
If you’re an avid reader or made a New Year’s resolution to consume more books, this is a great option for you.
All you need to do is sign up for the audiobook service called Audible.
Since Amazon owns Audible, once you are signed up, your account will automatically be linked to your Amazon Echo.
In order to start listening to your audiobook from Audible, you must first own or rent a book. Then you simply tell Alexa to play the book’s title.
You can also let Alexa know when you want it to pause, resume, or skip chapters.
It’s as simple as that to get more books read this year. We’ll see you next time!
