NOTE 8 ANDROID AUTO AND AUDIBLE

The note 8 does not support audible in Android Auto.  This is an important app for many.   Amazon support days that it is Samsung software issue.   IT workS on other Android phones so I know the O S supports it.

 

Hope they get on this soon!

It's a New Phone so there bound to be quirks and things that need updating. Hopefully the Note 8 will become more stable as Samsung releases patches in the coming weeks, months?

Does your car have Android Auto built in?  I just switched from a PIxel XL to the Note 8 and Audible works just fine in the Android Auto app.  Check your settings in both.

If you bring up Android Auto on the note 8 when you are away from your car can you see audible?

I use Audible with Android auto. You just have to tap on the headphones and then any app that you can use with headphones will be visible, and Audible is one of them.

I agree but there are two flavors of Audible I found out.  The one from "Galaxy Apps" doesn't seem to work for me either.  If your icon is orange and says "for Samsung" just uninstall and download the one from the Google Play store.  It'll show up under headphone icon once you open up Android Auto.

Hello everyone!

I'm going to be sure to pass this information up again. Hopefully it's something already being worked on, but I want to make sure that it's brought to their attention at least one more time.  Smiley Happy

I uninstalled Audible, restarted my phone, opened Android Auto, got to the phone's regular home screen with Android Auto running, installed Audible again, and it now works.  I have absolutely no idea which part, or parts of this did the trick.

I downloaded the Audible app from the google play store.  It will work for a while then when I open the app and try to listen to a book it freezes up.  The only solution that seems to work is reinstalling the app.  It will work for a while but I inevitably have to follow the same process over and over.  I have a ton of books so moving to another source would be quite a loss for me.  When will Samsung get this resolved?
