Audible’s New ‘Clips’ Are Like GIFs For Soundbites

Ever wanted to share a beautiful moment read by your favourite narrator? Nick Offerman, for example, talking about the importance of canoe crafting? (It’s a thing, trust me). Well, we’ve got memes, Vines, GIFs and now when it comes to sharing bit-sized content online you can share audio with Audible’s new sharing tool, ‘Clips’.

The digital feature allows 45 second excerpts from Audible content to be ‘clipped’ and instantly shared across Facebook, Twitter, SMS, e-mail, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

When you hear something you like, you just tap the ‘Clip’ icon. You can then move the start and end points until you hear the selection you want. Then you can save your clips, or share them with friends via email or social media.

Clips also lets you go back to specific locations in your audiobooks with bookmarks.

It is available now on iOS , Windows Store and Google Play.
