With their acquisition of Findaway Voices, they are offering authors another channel to share their books. Follow the steps in this article on how to upload your audiobook to Spotify.
The news has sparked excitement among authors around the world. You no longer need to rely solely on Audible or ACX to get your book out there; you can now upload it directly onto Spotify as well!

But if not, then don’t worry – getting started with creating an audiobook on this platform is easy too! All it takes is finding a narrator who will record your masterpiece using professional-grade equipment and software which meets the standards set by Spotify itself.

Once everything else has been taken care of, head over back into your dashboard where it’s time to make sure everything looks good before submitting those files for review from both yourself and Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX).
