As Chromecast supports to stream favorite entertainment and apps including Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, PANDORA, NBC Sports from your phone, tablet or laptop through a Wi-Fi connection to the TV or speaker, it is widely-used to enjoy favorite songs like playing Apple Music on Chromecast, streaming SoundCloud through Chromecast, or even watching 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 audiobook is unable to play on Chromecast because the Audible app itself fails to support the Cast SDK. Another reason is that audiobook from Audible is DRM protected so that you can only get access via some special software like Apple iTunes. Don't get crazy. In this article, we will tell you a direct way to cast Audible audiobook from Android phone and provide you with a solution 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 Google Home app, Audible Manager app, Chromecast Audio before you get started, then go to the below process:

Step 1. Plug in the Chromecast Audio device into your speaker and insert the power adapter to 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 need to be able to run Android 4.4.2 or higher.
