Storytel is a streaming platform that will give you access to a wide variety of audiobooks in Spanish and other languages. It is of Swedish origin and is available for iOS and Android. The operation of this mobile app is similar to iVoox and AudioLibros. However, it offers more interesting plans and a much more specialized and deeper catalog.
Storytel is a company founded in 2005 by Jonas Tellander and Jon Huksson. It was created in Sweden, the country where it is headquartered, and operates on a subscription model. It currently has more than one million registered users subscribed to one of the plans offered by the platform. This is not surprising if we consider that it has more than 300,000 audiobook titles in its catalog. A figure that has made it the largest streaming platform specialized in this type of content in Europe. It operates in a total of 17 continental markets, including Spain.
It is very simple. All you have to do is access the content when you are connected to a wifi network. Then click on “Download” the audiobook, after which it will be available in your library. You will then be able to listen to it through the app in the future even if you don’t have an internet connection.
Storytel is not available at no cost, although it does offer a trial period to give you an idea of how it works. In any case, you will have to subscribe to one of its three plans. The most popular is “Unlimited”, which will give you unlimited access to all its contents through a single account. However, if there are several people at home who are interested in this subscription, you have alternatives. One of them is the “Family” plan and the other is “Family Plus”. Specifically, they allow you to obtain a significant discount by linking two or three accounts to the formalized subscription.
Yes, keep in mind that, within the platform’s catalog, there are audiobooks whose content is not suitable for children. By activating this protection system, you can be sure that they will not be able to listen to them even if they try.
At first, e-book readers did it. But soon after, the audiobook format gained ground. Storytel is now one of the world’s leading exponents. It leads the European market thanks to its fantastic catalog and numerous customization options.
