Your Zinio Apps can now contain an Audio Digest Section!

Premium voice over talent and fully produced issue highlights in a single package, in your Zinio App

We have successfully launched the first Zinio-produced Audio Digests – a narrated compilation of an issue’s top articles! 

I’m here to announce that we can now offer premium voice over talent and fully produced issue highlights in a single audio package. 

The new section in the app is called “Audio Digest” as it features the main articles of an issue. 

A ZINIO Audio Digest is a human-narrated audio summary of a magazine issue, 45-60 mins in length with intro, outro, and 6-10 articles. 

You can be as involved or hands-off as you wish – either work with our team to customize each intro and selection of articles for each Audio Digest – or use a more scalable approach by leaving the selection to us and create a standard intro that can apply to each edition.  

We can deliver the produced audio files to you as one podcast-style audio compilation or individual audio articles. This allows you to incorporate the files into your customer experience on your website and apps.


Best of all, you can feature the Audio Digests in ZINIO’s branded apps! This way, you can increase the engagement of your subscribers and offer them a whole new way of experiencing your content.  

You can check out the new Audio Digest section in the following apps:  

You can check out the new ‘Audiozines’ category on our distribution partner Scribd that launched recently. With Scribd we’re running a 6-month pilot including additional brands Sports Illustrated, Clean Eating, Newsweek International, and Entrepreneur.

We are excited to monitor the usage on both platforms to learn how customers will engage with this new content format.

If you would like to find out more about how your Zinio branded app can contain its own Audio Digest section, please contact us. We’re excited to offer this new service to our publishers!
