Creator and provider of premium audio storytelling joining hands with Waze to give drivers the 'perfect book' for every trip


WazeWaze is all set to make travels more meaningful. The platform that is bringing together communities on and off the road, has announced Audible has joined its Audio Player Program.

This partnership will give drivers a way to fill time in the car with meaning, learning, art and storytelling, the platform said.

Audible, in association with Waze, offers drivers an Audible membership easy access to its catalogue of more than 600,000 Audible audiobooks, podcasts, Originals and other audio programs. For those travelling with the kids, or heading home from work, road tripping, there’s an Audible title to accompany every drive.

Adam Fried, Head of Global Partnerships at Waze, said, “We are very excited to kick off 2021 by welcoming Audible into the Audio Player family.”

He added: “Audible is such a beloved brand with a huge catalogue of content and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it straight to their drives. Our users have already driven over 100 billion kilometers while listening to content from streaming services on our Audio Player, and we can’t wait to bring this experience to even more users thanks to our collaboration with Audible.”

He added: “Whether you’re listening to the latest Audible Original or catching up on a recent best-seller, Audible on Waze allows you to seamlessly enjoy audio content that entertains, inspires and informs you.”
