Syncing OverDrive Read and Listen titles

OverDrive Read eBooks and OverDrive Listen audiobooks are synced through your library account. This means that you'll see your current reading or listening progress, bookmarks, highlights, and notes whenever you open those titles in your browser on any device with an active internet connection.

With OverDrive Read and Listen, only your progress in your browser will sync. If you read or listen in your browser, then download the title to the OverDrive app or Adobe Digital Editions, your progress will not sync with those other programs.

Syncing in the OverDrive app

You can sync your progress and bookmarks for downloaded eBooks, audiobooks, and streaming videos across multiple devices, as long as:

  1. You're using the OverDrive app v3.0 or higher.
  2. You sign into the OverDrive app with the same OverDrive account, Facebook, or a library card on each device.
  3. You download the title(s) to the OverDrive app (from your library's collection) on each device.
    Note: You'll only be able to add streaming video to the OverDrive app on Android and iOS devices.
  4. You have "Automatic syncing" turned on in your app Settings (or OverDrive account, on Windows 8/10).
  5. You have an active internet connection.

As long as you meet all these requirements, your progress and bookmarks will automatically sync when you open or close a title in the OverDrive app. When you open the app on another device, simply follow the prompts to go to your last synced place.
