Authors can now distribute Google Play Books’ auto-narrated audiobooks with Findaway Voices by Spotify
Exciting news for audiobook authors—Starting today, Findaway Voices by Spotify has begun accepting digital voice narrated audiobooks from Google Play Books for distribution to select retail partners. Google Play Books currently offers auto-narrated audiobook creation and editing for existing ebooks at no charge to the author.
We are also implementing metadata practices to denote this type of content in the narration credit. The book description will be prepended with the first sentence stating “This audiobook is narrated by a digital voice.” This will appear on all listening platforms where the audiobook is distributed.
As the audiobook industry continues its rapid growth, we look forward to enabling authors to grow by distributing digital voice narrated audiobooks to retailers and their listeners. This development is a win-win, allowing more authors to share their stories, and listeners to enjoy more audiobooks.
