Angry Amazon Kindle does not have support for Audible in India. What next?

I purchased an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. I am from India. My kindle have a Bluetooth functionality but it's of no use to me as kindle devices in India doesn't support audible.

So my question is can I store .m4b/.m4a files as audiobooks on kindle and listen them using a Bluetooth speaker/headphones? Just like we do with .azw3 files using calibre for eBooks. Similarly for audiobooks?

The only way to know is to try it.

I suppose that the best solution would be VPN.

I went a few rounds of discussion with Audible Canada about their lack of support for Kindle ereaders in mid-2021. Their response was:
Quote:
At this time, Kindle is not compatible with our Audible.ca software. We are always looking to expand our compatible devices catalog but since an extensive technical testing is required to perfect the final platform it may take a bit longer then expected to release a supported platform.
Pointing out the hardware and firmware on a Kindle Paperwhite was the same in both Canada and the US was responded to with the same "extensive technical testing" nonsense. A question as to what software Audible.ca would install on a Kindle Paperwhite was responded to with deafening silence.

Amazon.ca's tech support's idea of help was to point out that Audible while owned by Amazon is a separate company and Amazon has no control over their testing procedure.

I could find no way to sideload audio books on my Kindle though I could not try a few suggestions since my Paperwhite is not jailbroken.
