Audible brings you the latest titles and popular podcasts, ensuring you have hands-free access to your favorite stories and storytellers while you work out, run errands, or put the kids to bed. While Audible lets you listen on your laptop or phone, you can also connect it with Google's smart speaker and home assistant. Because the Amazon-owned Audible doesn't have an app for Google Home, you'll need to either pair your Audible app with the speaker using Bluetooth, or, if you have an Android phone, you can cast your audiobooks through the Google Home app. Before you do either, make sure your Google Home speaker and smartphone are connected to the same network. You'll also want to make sure the "Microphone" permission on your Android phone is turned on in your Google Play app. You can do this by opening the app, opening the "Permissions" menu and toggling the "Microphone" option on.
