I want to Thank You ! for creating the wonderful Librivox Google Home App!
I found it by accident, asking Google Home "Ok Google Find
Google replies "You might like talking to 'Free Book Reader'
does that sound good?"
Then of course, I was in!
Note that if you ask Google Home to "Open Librivox" it will not work. So there are many more 'won't work' than will in terms of phrasing, and I think it was luck that I used "Find" as I'd tried "can you read librivox" etc. with no luck and assumed that it was simply not an option.
i'd been using my cell phone to listen to Librivox, but using the Google Home, at home, is Much more convenient and avoids cell phone battery issues. I even purchased an Amazon Echo Dot hoping LibriVox might be available there, but no luck.
So it was a great surprise when I finally stumbled on this app and Many Thanks or the great job creating it!
