Never Miss a New Release With Countdown Pages for Audiobooks

Spotify is making it easier for booklovers to count down the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until a new audiobook releases. With Countdown Pages for audiobooks, listeners can pre-save audiobooks prior to a book’s release date—and authors, publishers, and narrators can promote their upcoming titles ahead of launch. This new feature will help ensure that users never miss their next great audiobook listens and help authors and publishers drive streams. 

We’ve seen the success and momentum Countdown Pages can have for musical artists and fans, with artists like Taylor Swift, Bad Bunny, Justin Timberlake, Kacey Musgraves, Billie Eilish, and others trying it out for album launches with great results: On average, nearly 70% of users who pre-save an album listen to it in the first week. We’re now excited to introduce this feature to another content vertical on Spotify as part of our ongoing effort to improve the overall experience for our users.
