Created in 1995 by journalist and writer Don Katz who two years later marketed a portable digital player with which users could take audiobooks and other audio content with them, the Audible platform opted for the international market with its arrival in Germany in 2005 And today, owned by Amazon, Audible is a content-focused company, with 375,000 downloadable audiobooks worldwide, audio editions of periodicals and other programs.
This makes it “the world’s largest seller and producer of spoken entertainment, information and educational programming.” And it has just arrived in Spain, where it is now available with a subscription service that allows access to an initial catalog of more than 100,000 contents with a commitment to quality local production.
