Overdrive Audiobook Users! A New Version of Overdrive Media Console is Available
Attention Overdrive audiobook users! Overdrive has announced that an updated version of the Media Console is available:
We are excited to announce new versions of OverDrive Media Console (OMC) for Windows. Both the classic desktop version of OMC for Windows and the Windows 8 app have been updated to provide a better user experience and improved performance.
OMC 3.3 for Windows (the classic desktop version) includes some design updates and support for integration with OMC 3 for Windows 8. Users can download the latest version of OMC for Windows 7 and older from the OMC website here.
Windows 8 users will have new functionality with the new version of OMC for Windows 8.
OMC 3 for Windows 8 (available in the Windows Store) includes these new features:
- Font selection and dictionary support for eBooks.
- An enhanced audiobook player with a sleep timer and variable speed playback.
- The ability to sync reading progress and bookmarks across devices using OverDrive One.
- New integration with OMC 3.3 for Windows so you can burn audiobooks to CD (as permitted) or transfer them to MP3 players (both apps must be installed).
Note: When you click Transfer or Burn from the OMC 3 for Windows 8, it will open OMC 3.3 for Windows on your desktop to complete the process.
