Note: The internet browser on PS4 can play Audible audiobooks, but it can not be run in the background. Once you go and get back to the browser, it will reload the page.

Play Audible on PS4 while Gaming

I know that most of you want to listen to Audible books while gaming. Using the browser cannot achieve that. But you can download Audible audiobooks to USB. Then you can use the built-in media player on PS4 to stream these audiobooks and put the player in the background while you're gaming.

Since the audiobook files on Audible can only be played on Audible-supported services, you'll have to convert them to common formats like MP3 so that they can be played elsewhere. With the ViWizard Audible AA/AAX Converter, you can use it to convert Audible audiobooks to MP3 or other common formats. After that, you'll be able to play them without the Audible app on PS4.
