We reported yesterday that Audible was testing a new app to replace their aged 2013 version, and believed at the time that it was a closed beta.
It turns out however that the app can be downloaded and installed by anyone, after WPArea.de found the link in the store.
The beta app’s description notes:
Audible.com, the internet’s premier provider of digital audiobooks and more, is now available for Windows Phone! This free app features the most comprehensive audiobook experience ever, including the ability to download from your Audible library, detailed listening stats, access to the Audible mobile store, and much more. Not an Audible member yet? We’ve included 8 excerpts from some of our favorite authors to get you started.
- Bug fixes
- Improved stability
- Personal recommendations

According to Audible’s support the app will be rolling out this quarter, which either means in the next few weeks or next 4 months.
You can test it directly however by downloading it from the Windows Phone Store here.
Thanks Ahmad for the tip.
