- Audible, Amazon’s famous audiobook subscription service has finally made it to India. The service will have a 30-day free trial, and afterwards, it will cost Rs 199 per month.
- Audible India’s pricing is quite remarkable considering that the US service costs $14.95 (Rs 1,085) per month.
- Apart from the base subscription, Audible India also has 6-month and 12-month plans which are priced at Rs 1,345 and Rs 2,332, respectively.
- Members also get a 30 per cent discount on buying additional audiobooks apart from their monthly credit. Users also get one credit per month which can be used to purchase any audiobook, no matter what price.
- Audible India’s library consists of over 200,000 audiobooks, all of which are available on the web and Android & iOS apps. However, the app is still in beta mode and Amazon is working on adding more India-specific content to the service.
