Audible family sharing is really a nice idea when sometimes you want to share some interesting or inspiring audiobooks with your family, friends or colleges. But as we know, it's not so easy to share some audible contents as they're encrypted by Amazon DRM to prevent illegal piracy over digital contents. As such, DRM-encrypted Audible books are only playable on certain devices and fail to be simply copied and shared with your family members.

But as you have legally purchased the audiobook product, Audible has accordingly promoted two official sharing ways as a solvent. Besides, we have prepared another effective way that can also help you share Audible books with families and friends.


Method 1. "Send this Book" to Share Audible Audiobooks

A direct way is to use "Send this Book" feature to share audible books with your family members or friends via email, text or message etc. Then the book acceptors will get a free credit card to buy the shared book. You can try this way either via the library page or the player page of an Audible app on many mobile devices etc. It's very easy to handle. First, go to the library and you can see an icon behind the audiobook titles. Tap it and you can see the "Send this Book" option. So you can share your favored audible audiobooks to your friends or family.

A poor fact is that the "Send this Book" function only works for new users and each new user can only have one time to use it. It seems that now we have to turn to another sharing solution.

Method 2. Use "Amazon Household Sharing" to Share Audible Audiobooks

If both you and your family members are regular Audible readers, "Amazon Household Sharing" plan may deserve a try to avoid the duplicate audiobook payouts. This will allows involved members to share the digital contents like games, apps, videos, music and books and so on if you have the Household Sharing Center account.

First, you should enter the "Manage Your Household" page of Amazon and then you will be led steps by steps. And this sharing way allows two adults and four children's active engagement. Then you can come to the "Manage Your Content and Devices" page of Amazon to choose audible contents to add to the library.

Now your family can purchase and share some Audible audiobooks with the common interest. But this is more applicable for family sharing instead of friends as the Amazon Household Sharing may involve children and the payment info will be charged equally. Moreover, as it is launched by Amazon, you should first have an Amazon Prime account besides Audible account.

Part 3. [Effective] Share Audible Audiobooks with DRM Stripped
