Thanks in part to all of the news coming out of San Francisco from Build 2015, we flat out missed the fact that the Audible app for Windows Phone got a solid update earlier this week. The new version adds a way to vary the narration speeds of an audiobook file, among other features.
The new version, 9.0.2, will now let users increase or decrease the speed of how an audiobook is played in the app, which is pretty handy if your a person who either wants to take his time in listening to his or her favorite book or wants to get it done as fast as possible.
In addition, the player itself has a new user interface to help with that variable speed feature. The app also has an option for a transparent Live tile on the Start screen. Finally, the change notes show that it has some unnamed performance improvements and bug fixes.
It looks like the Audible team is finally paying more attention to the Windows Phone app. It received its first official update in well over a year in March and this latest version comes less than two months after the 9.0.1 release.
