One of the most popular services for audio books these days is Audible by Amazon. If you like listening to books then you will likely have encountered this amazing service. One of the greatest things about it is the really simple to use app that you can have installed on your phone or tablet.
But the app is not available as a standalone software that you can install on your Windows PC. The good news is though that there is a simple and free solution. And we’ll tell you exactly what you need to do in a step by step guide.
Why Run Audible App On Your PC?
We often get asked this question and the simple answer is that the app is absolutely brilliant and extremely easy to use. You probably have it installed on your phone and use it a lot. On the other hand, using the web service is not as great and if you tend to spend a lot of time on your desktop computer then it is a good idea to have the app running there as well.
- Download and install the latest version of Nox App Player
- Launch the installer once the download is complete
- At the end of the installation click the start button
- Enter your Google account information
- Once Nox App Player launches start the Google Play Store
- Download the Audible app and enter your account details.
You are now ready to use the app on your desktop computer and take advantage of all the stuff on offer. If you want to find out more about the Audible services then check out the rest of this page.
What Is Audible?
Do you love reading novels, poems, or articles but have no time for buying or reading a book? Do you have a fast-paced life that makes it impossible for you to breathe and discover new stories? It is not too late to escape reality and dive into a new world of stories while you discover more characters and personalities. In fact, it is now easier for you to find new books through Amazon’s Audible app.
Amazon premium members are treated with free subscription to a database of literary works that they can listen to all they want. Audible Channels is the official name of the new service that Amazon recently launched. The Audible company was acquired by Amazon for a whopping $300,000,000.
This purchase by Amazon made it possible for their Prime members to access a broad range of audiobooks along with other benefits like free shipping, Prime Music, Prime Photos, Prime Videos access, and Lightning Deals. Amazon is doing their best to give their loyal members all the benefits that they can offer.
And such effort is rewarding both for subscribers as well as the multi-million company.
Quality Of Service
The quality of entertainment services that Amazon Prime can give to people is very useful. The addition of Audible Channels along with audiobooks just makes it even more tempting to avail a Prime membership.
So, if you were a former bookworm who completely have no opportunity for having quiet time with your favorite stories, this new Amazon Prime benefit would make it possible for you to indulge in your favorite literature while driving or cooking dinner for your kids. An Audible subscription usually would cost you $4.95 for the monthly fee, which is why Amazon Prime’s new deal is such a steal for everyone.
As the Audible Channels will be free of charge to Prime users, they will have unlimited access to favorite audiobooks from various genres. Such audiobooks are top-rated and are very exciting to explore. Examples of top-rated audiobooks that you’ll find in the selection are Ender’s Game Alive by Orson Scott Cards, The Good Girl by Mary Kubica, and What It Is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes.
If you cannot find your favorite author and audiobook in the list of featured titles, do not worry because the choices will regularly be rotated. This feature means that you’ll have more options after a while. So just keep praying and waiting for your favorite authors to get featured.
If you are a fan of classical tales or novels, you’ll love how Amazon Audible will give you stories that are narrated by celebrities. Hearing celebrities that you see on movie screens read classic stories for you, makes it extra exciting to listen to audiobooks because it will be easier for you to visualize him or her as a character of the story.
Some of the celebrity-narrated stories that you’ll find in the list are Pride and Prejudice narrated by Rosamund Pike, Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland in the narration of Scarlett Johansson, as wells as Dracula with a full-cast recording featuring the voice of Alan Cumming. If you are a fan of one of these actors, you won’t be able to stop listening to Audible audiobooks.
For families who love to listen to stories together, and for children who couldn’t sleep without some bedtime stories, Amazon Audible will make it easier for you to bond and let your imaginations fly.
Favorite stories for the whole family are also included in the rotating list of audiobooks that you can listen to through the new application. Winnie-the-Pooh, Clifford the Big Red Dog, and The Velveteen Rabbit are just some of the stories that you can listen to with the whole family while drinking a cup of hot chocolate together.
Plus, listening to Audiobooks will lessen the possibility of having problems with your kid’s eyesight because of reading books at night.
Audible Channels For News
Another feature is the Audible Channels which allows listeners to freely hear spoken articles that are published by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, as well as other news publications. For those who love to hear more about history, science or comedy, these categories are also available in Channels too.
With the modern technology that we have now, everything is possible. Your excuse of not having enough alone time to read your favorite novels or hear about the latest news articles should not be a reason today because of the services that Amazon Audible can offer. With the features that Amazon is offering their Prime members, lives of shopaholics and bookworms are made easy with just a click or a press of a button.
