We’re excited to announce a new way to experience Wattpad stories – with sound! The new feature available on our Android app lets Wattpadders add audio clips to their stories. They can create their own clips, or choose from the millions of sounds available on SoundCloud. This new feature lets Wattpadders create audiobooks, narrate dialogue, add soundtracks to their stories from their mobile device, and much more.  At the tap of a button, readers can enjoy a more immersive storytelling experience with sound effects and recorded messages from their favorite writers. “Audio clips can bring stories to life. Wattpad writers can use sound effects to add impact to a story, narrate an excerpt, or share a playlist to entertain their readers in a new way,” said Tarun Sachdeva, head of product at Wattpad.
