OverDrive released the beta version of OverDrive Media Console for Android today December 21. The free software for audiobooks can be downloaded to popular phones running the Android operating system, and used to enjoy audiobooks from our ‘Virtual Branch’ website.
Android users can now browse our collection, check out with a library card, and download audiobooks on-the-go. OMC for Android offers popular listening features like resume from furthest played point and custom bookmarking. At this time, OverDrive MP3 Audiobooks are the only digital format available for Android.
While in beta, OMC for Android will be available for download exclusively at the OverDrive Media Console page at overdrive.com. When version 1.0 is released, we will update your Help pages. During this beta period, users will be encouraged to send any support issues and feedback directly to us. If you should receive support questions directly, please do not hesitate to send them along to Jon White so he can forward them to overDrive.
Stay tuned, as we expect to announce more OverDrive Media Console mobile releases in the coming months!
