Audible's CarPlay support helps you listen to your favorite audiobooks

With support for CarPlay, Audible now gives you access to your audiobook collection while you're driving. The update also adds several improvements to the Discover experience and sleep timer, along with several optimizations for both the iPhone and iPad.

You can check out all of the changes in Audible 2.5 below:

  • CarPlay is now available for Audible!
  • Lock Screen/Control Center – Previously, the Lock Screen/Control Center buttons were always chapter forward/back, even if your settings were for 30-second forward/back. Now, your lock screen/Control Center will feature the correct icons.
  • Sleep Timer – There is now a "Reset Timer" option after the sleep timer ends, reducing the number of taps from 4 to 2.
  • Sleep Timer – The fade-out returns.
  • Discover – On iPhone, we've updated the visual design by removing the dark overlay and going to a grid.
  • Discover – On iPad, we've replaced "Discover" with a true browse experience (it used to just be search). It should now mirror the iPhone version.
  • When you sample a book from a book detail page in "Discover" or search, it now plays in the player. This allows you to leave the detail page and still listen to the sample.
  • New Tab Bar – We moved Settings into the main navigation and created an overflow menu (on iPhone) for the items that no longer fit on the main tab.

You can grab Audible 2.5 from the App Store right now.
