Audio Book Family Sharing Family Sharing Audiobooks

Our family has a Premium Family account. I am wanting to purchase audio books which my children have to read for school this year and want to know that if I purchase the books under the Plan Managers Account can we share the books with the kids accounts or do they have to be purchased through their own account?

Hey there,

Thanks for posting in the Community!


Currently, it's not possible to share an audiobook with Family Plan members. The purchase is bound to a specific account and can be used only with the account used for the purchase. With that being said, your kids needs to purchase the audiobooks they'd like to read through their own accounts. 


More info about Audiobooks you can find in this support article.

I have a family plan that I pay for. My son bought an audio book in his account as part of our family plan (with my $). The book was expensive and I would like to listen to it too, but it is not in my library. Is there a way for me to listen to it without paying for it again? He is at college. Thank you.

Spotify needs to channge this it looks like this is possible with the competition. I also cant share a book with my wife, it will be my last purchase from them. 

My husband and i agree. We will only be downloading on audible now. We assumed this feature was already available when he bought 4 books for our business, but they are not. But he has no problem with my audible library.
