Audible, Inc. Key Developments

Audible, Inc. Releases ‘Clips’ Functionality

Audible, Inc. announced the release of ‘Clips,’ a functionality that allows listeners to save favorite short passages and excerpts from Audible audiobooks they’ve downloaded for later listening, and also enables the sharing of these passages using iOS and Windows, and will soon be enabled on Android. With ‘Clips,’ customers can start conversations with friends about the audiobooks they are listening to; listeners can also now go back to specific locations in an audiobook or dramatic moments in a specific performance that spoke to them. Listeners also love talking about books, authors, and narrators they are passionate about, and ‘Clips’ makes it easier for customers to start meaningful conversations with their friends and family directly from their audiobook whenever inspiration strikes!. Before ‘Clips,’ literary quotes could only be shared from ebooks or transcribed from print books. For the first time audiobook listeners will be able to share pieces of audio content with their social network. Clips can be shared across multiple destinations including Facebook, Twitter, SMS, e-mail, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and more.

Audible Plans to Expand its Newark Holdings by Renovating Historic Church

Audible will expand its Newark holdings by renovating a historic church. The sites are about a block away from Audible's high-rise headquarters at 1 Washington Park. According to an application filed with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority last year, Audible plans to use the site to house an engineering and development hub that would create about 350 jobs, and help keep 50 existing positions in Newark. The EDA approved a 10-year, $39.3 million Grow New Jersey award for the project in May, according to minutes approved by the agency's executive board.
