[Audiobooks] Bookmark Audio Books and separate them from music

Status: Not Right Now

Please implement bookmarks for audio books and separate them from music.

________________________

There was an idea for bookmarks in audio books. Sadly it was closed, because one half of the idea (save the position in podcasts) has been implemented, even though nearly all of the 30 pages was about people wanting this for audio books.

 

As the moderator posted "If you'd like to see the same behaviour for audio books, we'd recommend making a new Community Idea for this.", so this is it.

 

There are many other audio book bookmarks requests, but they were all closed as duplicates because of the now closed idea. 

 

As an additional aspect to this, please ensure a separate handling / tagging of audio books and music. When alternating between listening to audio books and music the Spotify engine starts putting book chapters in your recommendation playlists, which doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

Hey folks,


We appreciate you coming to the Community, and adding your votes and comments to this idea.


We're setting this idea to 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement.
If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.


Thanks

Audiobooks completely unusable. As soon as a song is listened, the position in the audiobook is lost. Like we are in 1990. And our requests for something so basic completely neglected.
To end "The pillars of the earth" I resorted lending the 12 CDs from  the public library because I was continuously losing the position, when listening to any song in the web browser...
