As Chromecast supports streaming your favorite entertainment apps including Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, PANDORA, and NBC Sports to your phone, tablet, or laptop through a Wi-Fi connection to a TV or speaker, many people utilize it to play Apple Music on Chromecast, stream SoundCloud through Chromecast, and even watch iTunes movie via Chromecast at any time and any place. But it's a pity that Audible on Chromecast is out of the list. What's the reason?
Audible audiobooks are unplayable on Chromecast because the Audible app itself fails to support the Cast SDK. Additionally, audiobooks from Audible are DRM protected so that you can only get access via some special software like Apple iTunes. But don't get frustrated. In this article, we will tell you a direct way to cast Audible audiobooks from Android phones and provide you with some solutions to settle down the issue of casting Audible audiobooks on Chromecast.
Part 1. Mirror Audible Audiobooks from Android Phone to Chromecast Directly
Please ensure that you've installed the Google Home app, Audible Manager app, and Chromecast Audio before you get started, then follow the below process:
Step 1. Plug your Chromecast Audio device into your speaker and insert the power adapter into an electric socket.
Step 2. Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast Audio or speaker with Chromecast built-in.
Step 3. Go to the side menu of the app, tap "Cast Screen/Audio", then select the casting speaker you want the audio to play from.
Step 4. On your Android, open Audible, choose an audiobook, and start playing and it will stream to the speaker automatically.
Note: Your devices should be able to run Android 4.4.2 or higher.
Obviously, this method only works for Android and it can't meet the needs of people who have iOS or Windows devices. To solve this issue, TuneFab Audiobook Converter can help you out.
