As part of the Medium subscription service, those with a monthly plan for the popular blogging platform will now have access to audio recordings of the top stories on the site. The audio recordings mark the first major feature release for the Medium subscription service, which is itself a relatively young product from Medium.

Considering the payments that consumers make to get access to their Medium subscription, the platform has ensured that the audio recordings they offer will be of excellent quality. Rather than automating the process with robotic text-to-speech algorithms, Medium's top stories will be narrated by professional voice actors. As one might expect, this labor-intensive process limits the narrations to the best and most popular articles on the platform.
