But there is one thing to note that it’s possible that there may be some kind of interruption if more than 2 peoples use the Audible account same time.

I have tested with the 2 people, we were able to listen to Audiobook at the same time on two different devices.

Note: If you are sharing your account with other people, then please turn off the “Sync device Position” to avoid disturbance. You can find this option under your Audible settings.

Method 3: Share The Book From Inbuilt App Feature

There is an inbuilt book sharing feature which you can use to share the book with others. But it will not give them access to the book, instead it will invite the person to buy the book.

This feature has relevance, if you are sharing the book with a person who never subscribed to the Audible in the past. Then the person can get 1 month of free Audible trial with the book which you shared with him/her.

  • Open Audible
  • Go to the Audiobook with you want to share
  • Tap on the three-dot icon from the Audiobook
  • Tap Send This Book
