Multiple Audible Accounts

I have different audible accounts other than my current one which is linked to my amazon account. On my fire tablet, I can listen to my current audible purchases however cannot access my other audible accounts. On the audible app on the fire tablet I don't see an option to sign out to login into my other audible accounts. Even when I used the web browser to access the audible cloud player I get an error when I try to access my other audible accounts. When I connect my fire tablet to my laptop my desktop audible manager doesn't recognize it to transfer my old audible files. Apparently audible doesn't make it user friendly to access separate audible accounts easily. Luckily, I can still access my old audible files on my laptop but it would be convenient to access it on my fire tablet.

What about sideloading the actual Audible Android app (the one from the Google Play store) to the device and using that instead of the Fire's integrated Audible? With that app you should be able to log in and out of various accounts. Fire's are designed to be integrated with your Amazon account for consuming Amazon content (which includes Audible) so AFAIK there is no way to work around it and access an Audible account that's not linked to an Amazon account.


EDIT: Yeah, from Audible's help area. Audible on a Fire requires a merged Audible/Amazon account...

Note: If you are signing in to your Audible account with a unique username and password as opposed to your Amazon account, you will need to merge in order to see your Audible audiobooks on your Amazon Fire

I tried sideloading the audible app from Google Play store on my Fire tablet but not surprisingly it was unable to install. However, on my Galaxy Note 8 tablet I was able to log out of the audible app (linked to my current amazon account) and then access my other audible audiobooks from a different account.

As far as merging accounts I'm a little nervous about doing something wrong and then losing access to all of my digital content.

It's annoying that the Android Audible app can't be sideloaded to Fire tablets, as it's so much better than the native player. I don't see why Amazon can't get the native player right on Fires.

I suspect because they are really pushing whispersync, or whatever they call it. Syncing the words in the ebook with the narration of the audiobook.

I think that's what they call immersion reading. Whispersync is the ability to pick up where you left off when switching between devices and/or media.

How many Audible accounts do you have?

If you have two Audible accounts, one option is to connect them to each other with Amazon Household. https://www.amazon.com/myh/manage?

Once you set up your accounts to be part of the same "household", you can go into "Manage Your Content and Devices", then "Your Devices" and set each device to "Show [other account]'s content". https://www.amazon.com/mn/dcw/myx.ht...home/devices/1

I have confirmed that immersion reading or Whispersync for Voice will work if you have an ebook on one account and the corresponding audiobook on the other, and have content from both accounts shared through the same Household.

You have to listen to the audiobooks from your other accounts on any device using the app, where you can log in and out of your multiple Audible accounts, not Fires. I went through all this a few years ago when I bought my first Fire as I have four accounts in total.

As for merging, you can only link one audible account to your Amazon account and Audible won't merge multiple Audible accounts into one account.

For listening a home I use an Echo. The nice thing about that is I can log into a username audible account on my android tablet/phone and then link my Echo through Bluetooth to my tablet/phone. Then I can play the audiobook through the Echo and control it via voice, like any Amazon linked account audiobook. You just have to start the audiobook on the android tablet first.

For out and about I use the audible app on my phone so I switch accounts as I need to for the audible account I want.

I've had an audible account since Jan, 2006. I have one of the grandfathered basic accounts, which means I only pay $10 a year, but don't get any credits. Back in 2012, I opened up a gold account for my niece and nephew to share. They used it a fair amount at the beginning, but not so much over the last couple of years. Now it has 18 credits built up. I definitely need to shut it down before it renews in December.

Unfortunately, one can't transfer credits from one account to another according to the service rep just now. So I guess that since you are suppose to still have access to the books even if you cancel the account, I'll need to go ahead an use those credits up myself.
