Back in November, Audible debuted Android Auto support for their app in the beta version of the app. As of today's update, Android Auto support is now there in the stable version. So for those with Android Auto, you'll be able to listen to your favorite books in the car while you're driving to/from work, or just in the car driving around. It's a great improvement to the app. As far as the UI in Android Auto goes, it's pretty similar to the other Android Auto apps that are available. You can jump back a few seconds, as well as jump forward. You can also increase the speed between 0.5x and 3x the normal speed. In the overflow menu, you'll be able to switch between books and see what ones are available. However, it's important to remember that you will need to download the book before you're able to play it in Android Auto.
That's not all that's new in this update for Audible, however. As mentioned above, you can fine tune playback speed now, between 0.5x and 3x depending on the speed you'd like to have for your books to be read. Audible has also made it easier to access your wish list from within the app. In addition to that, there's also easier access to best sellers, categories and even pre-orders. And of course, you have your usual bug fixes and performance improvements included in this update to Audible.
