Within the Kindle Fire Tablet or Kindle app, you may switch from reading to listening. You may also alternate between reading on one device and listening on another. With the Whispersync for Voice, you can sync your Audible audiobook listening history on multiple devices.

2. What device is best for listening to Audible?

In my opinion, Amazon Kindle is the best device for listening to Audible. Because you can switch from listening to reading. But the drawback is it can't be as portable as an MP3 or a smartphone. In a word, it depends on your needs.

No. Audible is not included in Prime services. But when Prime users subscribe to an Audible plan, they can get more benefits, such as get more credits.
