Audible adds custom speech commands along with support for Windows Phone 8

Amazon’s Audible app for Windows Phone has just received a fairly substantial update in its latest iteration, version 1.4. For all of you new device owners, that means proper Windows Phone 8 support.

The update delivers a few fixes in the background, which promises an overall more stable experience than the bugginess of the app before. However, the real standout feature in this new version of the app is custom voice commands thanks to Windows Phone 8′s handy Speech API. That means you can tap and hold on your phone’s start button, and then say “Audible play”, “Audible add bookmark”, “Audible next chapter” etc. You can use the same voice commands within the app as well.

If you haven’t ever used Audible, the app comes with 8 sample excerpts for you to try. You can download Audible from the Windows Phone Store for free by clicking on the link below, or by scanning the QR code.
