Audible Wants You to Share Audiobook Clips Like Memes

Posted March 18th 2016


Social media apps like Vine, Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram are full of video and images, but they don’t offer much in the way of storytelling.  Audible wants to change that with a new feature in its app called Clips, which encourages you to share excerpts from your favorite audiobooks on social media like you would share a Vine or a meme.

Clips basically allows you to select a short passage from an audiobook, after which you can download the excerpt or share it to social media, through emails, or in a text message.

With the new tool, you can choose 45 seconds of audio and make edits to it, if you so choose. The editing capability is something that should help people turn snippets of audiobooks into stories of their own.
