The existing NOOK Audiobooks program will soon be retired and replaced with a new and improved B&N Audiobooks program.
What Happens Next?
We will inform existing NOOK Audiobooks users via email in the next few weeks how to access the new B&N Audiobooks platform. Audiobooks will be accessible through an updated version of the existing NOOK app, which will now be called the Barnes & Noble NOOK app, as well as a new Audiobooks store available at www.bn.com/audiobooks. Users who already have the NOOK app on their iOS or Android device simply need to visit their device’s app store to download the app update to gain access to the Audiobooks features.
While we do not yet have an exact date of launch, we will contact existing NOOK Audiobooks users again in the next few weeks when the new platform is available.
If you have books in the NOOK Audiobooks Library, that content will transfer seamlessly to the new B&N Audiobooks platform and your content library behind the scenes. You don’t have to do anything for the migration to take place.
For a brief period of time after the launch of B&N Audiobooks, the existing nookaudiobooks.com website and NOOK Audiobooks app will still be accessible with your library. However, after that time, both the NOOK Audiobooks app and website will cease to be available or technically supported, so access to any existing content will only be possible via the new B&N NOOK app and BN.com.
You will be able to use your same B&N account credentials to access the new B&N Audiobooks platform. If you have an existing BN.com account with a different email address than what you used for NOOK Audiobooks, please contact Customer Service for further assistance.
There is no requirement to do anything when NOOK Audiobooks is replaced by B&N Audiobooks. However, please understand that the existing nookaudiobooks.com website and NOOK Audiobooks app will cease to be available or technically supported, so access to any existing content will only be possible via the new B&N NOOK app and BN.com.
