Apparently, Audiobooks are a big thing? Who would have known? I’m not one to sit there and listen to Audiobooks, just like the radio, I don’t listen to it personally, but others do.
Looking at the available options for Audiobooks it would seem that one can get it in about 9 different languages. This is a bit shorter than I’d expect especially when you have this available 45 Countries… The categories available to people is pretty extensive and this should please many, I see all kind of interesting genres.
The voice integration when it comes to voice command is still done in English at this time, but I’m hopeful this will change shortly.
From the people around me who do like Audiobooks, I’ve been given a tour of just how easy it is to use, to pick up where they left and to just plainly enjoy listening to some dire story. I can understand the appeal to this, you just have to sit back, relax and enjoy a good talk while working on something else.
