Play.ht (for Medium) is a Free Chrome Extension to Listen to any article on Medium as an Audio Narration.

I use Play.ht for providing audio for my Medium readers. They are robotic voices, but it gets the job done and it's very easy to get started. You can even embed the player inside your own articles.

This seems like a very popular Chrome extension for listening to articles. Did well in the Product Hunt launch 😊

I was going to recommend this when I saw the question. But you already did. This is definitely the best extension to listen to Medium articles.
Play is an app that adds Audio Narrations to your Articles using automated voices and automatically adds an Embedded Audio Player in those articles for your readers to Listen and Subscribe! Is your blog on Medium? Check out How to Add Audio to Your Blog on Medium!
Unlike reading that demand a reader's complete attention and focus, audio narrations come with the advantage of multitasking, allowing you to better engage for longer periods with your audience as the content is delivered in a way that's easy to consume.
Instead of reading the news, enjoy it being read to you! Plus, it's read to you in a friendly human voice (instead of a robot voice, because as much as I like Alexa and Siri, they don't have the same finesse).
