[Audiobooks] Bookmark Audio Books

Please implement bookmarks for audio books.


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. 


On another topic - if you'd appreciate more choice on caching and saving on mobile data, please check this idea out.

This is really needed!




Me an my wife are listening to audiobooks. Spotify remembers the position as long as we don't listen to other music. There should be a button "bookmark position" or another implementation for helping better listening to audiobooks!

Casual Listener

Yes, please implement this

Could we at least get a response from the dev-team? Come on, guys!

You have the functionality already available for podcast. It’s literally a matter copy/paste. Make it happen already!

They could literally wipe out a whole audiobook Plattform in Germany, if They'd make IT Happen.

I know several people with Accounts on both, which would immediately switch to only use Spotify 


Why does spotify not implement this function? As we see in podcasts it is possible. And the community asks for it for years now. What is going on? Spotify even marks the threads about it as "new idea". wth?


I find this idea important: Not only that spotify remembers the bookmark in a book audio file, but also to exlude book chapters from any personal "best of"  compilation. Is there any update as per now (Oct. 2019)?


This feature is available for ITunes since I can think. If it works for podcasts it should be easy to apply to books too. If there is a problem regarding patents or something else like from Apple regarding this, just be honest and tell so. But it would really add a lot of value to Spotify.
