Whispersync for Voice is *LIVE*

Whispersync for Voice (syncing between e-books and audiobooks) is live *now.* It works (obviously) with older devices. It works with my Kindle Keyboard. There are also a variety of free books/audible books you can try it out with. I used "Dracula."

Here's a link to the page: https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000827761

I downloaded Dracula (ebook to my kindle touch and the kindle app for android, and audio to Audible app for android). I can't get the audio to sync at all. The ebooks will sync from my kindle touch to the kindle app for android, but not the audio. I don't even see any option in the Audible app to "sync to furthest page read" or anything. Maybe it just isn't ready yet? Has anyone gotten it to work?

I'm using the Kindle for iPad app and Audible for iPod. Everything is up to date and the audio sync still isn't working for me. I had to merge my Audible account with my Amazon account. I'm wondering if that's the delay. Perhaps it takes them time to update the system. If it doesn't work soon, I'll call Audible today.

I downloaded all 27 classics. Free is always a great deal!

Just got done listening to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, beautiful narration by Anne Hathaway. Downloaded all the classics too. I bought another Jane Eyre version a few years ago for high school, should be nice to re-read with a different narrator.

I couldn't get Whispersync to work though. Will keep trying.

I tried it with The Moonstone (by Wilkie Collins) and it syncs beautifully using the Kindle and Audible apps on my iPad. I'll work on getting some of the other free titles later today. This is a wonderful feature!

Can you talk about whether and when you had to issue "sync" commands? Mine's working one way (if I listen ahead to the Audible file on my iOS device, I can get the Kindle reading spot to advance), but not the opposite (even if I go through a Chapter break on the Kindle, the Audible app will always start playing at the place I last paused the audio, NOT the spot that I read to). I've tried issuing sync commands from both devices, and both tell me they're at the furthest spot, but it's not true.

Update: Have now confirmed that for me at least, sync is *only* pushed from Audible-to-text, NOT text-to-audible, using a hardware Kindle, as well as Kindle apps for iOS and Android.

It works both ways for me. The Kindle app syncs on its own but I have to manually sync the Audible app (by tapping "Sync Position Across Devices" in Settings), although at one point it did ask me if I wanted to sync to the same position as the Kindle app (something like that; can't remember the exact wording).

I've been playing with this and still haven't figured it totally out.

iPhone Audible app, K Fire, and KK 3G

Only one time did the Audible app on my iPhone do a sync to where I was in the book on the K Fire. I haven't got it to do it again.

It may be that I have the book on both Kindles and it messes it up when they are on different pages or that I have flipped ahead in the books and then went back to the beginning, but it now wants to sync to a page that I was on earlier and not where the book is now.

iPhone Audible app and iPhone Kindle app

I have been trying it with the iPhone Audible and Kindle app and can't get them to sync so that I can switch back and forth.

Hmm... Tried your book, and yep, it works in Moonstone. Still doesn't work in the book I was trying, Huckleberry Finn. Looks like there's book-specific stuff that some Amazon/Audible employee needs to set up *just right* for each title.

Got it to work with my Kindle Fire. I had to manually press sync each time though.

Did you press the sync on the Fire book to get it to match what was on the Audible iOS app?

I need to go try again with another book and only open it on one of my Kindles.

I was using the Audible app on the Kindle itself with the Fire's built in Kindle reader. Haven't tried it with my Kindle Android/Mac app or Audible for Android yet.
