How to play Audible audiobooks on iPod Touch/Shuffle/Nano?

iPod Touch support apps, so you can use the Audible for iOS application to listen to audiobooks.

For iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano, you need to transfer Audible audiobooks to them with iTunes (for MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave or earlier) or Finder (for macOS 10.15 Catalina and later). We highly recommend downloading any Audible audiobooks longer than 20+ hours in multiple parts before transferring them to your iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano.
