Description

You cherish bulgarian language and culture. You are at the right place - use Alexa to play bulgarian stories, songs and radio-stations for people of all ages.
Enjoy continuous "playback across all your devices" (start playing a story on your home-alexa, stop it half the way through, get in the car and resume it on your cellphone-alexa or any other device on your account)
Listen to radio stations (like Horizont, Hr.Botev, BgRadio and more). More stories will be made available over time for the whole family to enjoy.
This is a FREE actively developed skill - bugs might sneak in undetected. Please be patient and report to the developer (zoro@bgbiblioteka.club) any problems, suggestions, etc.
Be part of this initiative - help this platform grow and flourish.

Install "Bulgarian Library" Alexa Skill

  1. Make sure "English language" is added in your device-settings
  2. Install the skill from appropriate English-speaking platform (US, UK, CA or AU)
    • Just say "Alexa, enable bulgarian library skill"
      You can also login into (amazon.com, amazon.ca, amazon.co.uk or amazon.com.au) OR in your Alexa-app, search for "bulgarian library" skill and enable it.
      Please consider voting for this feature so that you could help others living in non-english-regions to use the library as you do.
    • Attention: For all other non-English regions
      Unfortunately, currently Amazon does not allow english-based skills in non-english regions (like Germany).
      This new feature has been requested with Amazon (28 votеs so far). Please go there and VOTE! for it so that Amazon would take it seriously.
      For time being, as a workaround you could try to re-point your account to one of these 4 regions above and then enable the skill.
      Also keep in mind that "bulgarian library" can also be accessed from iOS, Android, laptop here: bgbiblioteka.club
  3. If you are 13 or older, you have the option to enable advanced features (like "resume most recent"), just say "Alexa, ask bulgarian library to enable advanced features". You will be asked to grant 2 permissions:
    • email-address so that your devices can be linked all together
    • country/region needed for analytics purposes so that "usage across countries" chart can be generated
