Audiobooks are a great alternative for readers who are constantly on the move - and you can access a whole library of them for free on Spotify
In recent months, the audio streaming service has been expanding its library to offer more than just music - it now has a wide selection of podcasts, audiobooks, and even language learning aids.
To access audiobooks, click or tap on the 'Browse' tab, then look for a category called 'Word'
Under the 'Word' category, you'll find a playlist called 'Audiobooks'. This playlist curates a few chapters from various audiobooks, so you can listen and decide if you'd like to finish up the whole audiobook.
You can also use the search bar to look for audiobooks:
- Type in "audiobooks" and look for the user profile with the same name (it has a verified tick next to it), or
- Type in "unabridged" and just scroll on.
