Spotify’s New Audiobooks Access Tier: Unlimited Listening with a Limit

Last year, Spotify introduced audiobooks to its Premium plan in the US, UK, and Australia with over 200,000 titles. The feature was well-received by users. Now, Spotify is expanding its audiobook offerings with the new Audiobooks Access Tier.

What Does the Audiobooks Access Tier Offer?

This new tier grants you unlimited access to Spotify’s entire audiobook catalog, with a listening limit of 15 hours per month. The cost? Only $9.99 per month. With this plan, users can enjoy music and podcasts on the platform, but with ads, just like the ad-supported free plan.

Premium vs. Audiobooks Access Tier:

It’s important to note that this plan is only a Dollar less than the Premium plan, which costs $10.99 per month. The Premium plan offers ad-free music, podcasts, offline downloads, and the same audiobook privileges.

Why Choose the Audiobooks Access Tier?

The question many are asking is, why would anyone opt for the audiobook-only plan when Premium offers more benefits? Some may find the 15 hours per month limit insufficient. If Spotify had provided unlimited audiobook listening or at least an extra 10 hours with the $9.99 plan, it would have been a justifiable price.

The Advantage of Spotify’s Audiobook Offering:

The one major advantage you get with Spotify when it comes to audiobooks is that you have unrestricted access to all the books available on the platform. Unlike competitors, where you’re forced to buy books separately.
