If you’re a regular Audible listener, you surely want to get Audible when you’re doing something easy like playing a relaxing game.

Is there an Audible app on Xbox One? There must be a way to make it happen. I’d love to listen to Audible books while playing relaxing games like Minecraft for example. If Audible was on my Xbox One I would never turn it off. Cuz I usually use headphones on my Xbox, so it’s a pain if I want to listen to a book and keep the game on low in the background, it’d be better to play it on the console and I’ll shut the game sound down.—Gamer from Reddit

Actually Xbox one is not only a game console, it has integrated with apps like Netflix, Spotify and YouTube. But due to some reasons, it does not have an Audible on its app store yet.

But today I’m going to show you two legit ways to stream Audible to Xbox One. Just read the following parts to learn how.
