Hoping someone on the forum can
- Let us know if we can use Librivox as the name of our app
- If so, help us with the brand verification by responding to the email that will be sent to the brand owner
If you could send us an email at email@example.com we could see what would prove acceptable to Google as the domain website owner .

For this type of app, Google's verification process does consider Librivox to be a "reserved name" and requires someone who owns the domain/website to follow a procedure to confirm site ownership. I.e., respond to a Google-sent email, put a specific file on the librivox.org website so Google can then check for it, etc.
Our reason for asking for this verification is to offer users a better experience. I.e., a user would say "Hey Google, talk to Librivox" to launch into the app on their Google Home. The less-desirable solution that would not require the help of Librivox admins is for us to use a longer, harder-to-remember name: "Hey Google, talk to Librivox reader" (or something like that).
We would be most grateful if the admins are willing to help us with this verification procedure. If it helps, happy to share more info about the project. Here's a short video of an early version.
