Spotify's audiobook subscription feature arrives in Canada and a number of new countries


Spotify Premium users in Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand will be able to access 15 hours of audiobook listening per month at no additional cost starting April 9, and subscribers in the US, UK, and Australia will have access to this feature for several months.

The premium audiobook catalog now includes more than 250,000 titles, which is a significant increase from the 200,000 audiobooks that were in the library as of late 2023, so when you can use the change from the millions of songs and podcasts on Spotify, you will have a large number of books to choose from. , according to an Engadget report.

Those who have reached the 15-hour limit can add more audiobook listening time for an additional 10 hours.

In new markets, additional listening time costs 14.99 CAD, 12.99 EUR or 19.99 NZD, per TechCrunch.

Since last month, Spotify has offered an audiobook-only subscription plan in the US at $10, which is $1 less per month than Spotify Premium for the same 15 hours of audiobook listening time.

However, depending on the length of the books you listen to, this plan may be a better value than Audible, which gives you one audiobook credit per month for $15. However, unused audiobook listening time on Spotify does not carry over to the next month. .
