"I am a big fan of Audible who listen to Audible audiobooks everyday. Can I stream Audible audiobooks via Chromecast Audio to my home speakers to enhance the sound quality? I'd prefer to enjoy Audible files in this way when I am at home if possible. " - Question from an Audible forum.

Chromecast Audio is perhaps the most beautiful and powerful music streaming device. By plugging in it, your offline home speakers will be changed to smart internet speakers immediately and you can stream music from couples of streaming apps such as Spotify, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, TuneIn Radio, Pandora and so on. It makes it most convenient ever to enjoy high quality music freely. However, the Audible app is not on the list. So many audiobook users might have similar question mentioned above. No worries. Here I will offer the top 2 ways on how to stream Audible files on Chromecast Audio.

How to Cast Audible Audiobooks Directly from an Android Phone

Chromecast Audio is very friendly to cast music from an Android phone. To get started, please make sure you have the tools including Google Home app, Audible Manager app, Chromecast Audio and Android Phone. Then you can follow the steps:

1. Plug in the Chromecast Audio device into your speaker and insert the power adapter to an electric socket.

2. Make sure the devices speaker, Chromecast Audio and the Android phone are connected to the same WiFi network.

3. Download Google Home app on your Android phone and open it, it will detect the Chromecast Audio which is connected to the same network.

4. Go to the side-menu of the app > Tap "Cast Screen/Audio" > Select the casting speaker you want the audio to play from.

5. Run Audible on your Android to play the audible books, it will stream to the speaker automatically.

This is so intuitive, right? This method works perfectly for users who have an Android phone, but it doesn't work for IOS or Windows phones or any other third party casting apps due to the reason that Audible AA and AAX files are DRM protected and not recognized well outside Amazon's ecosystem.
