Thanks

...but not as promising as I hoped for. It's similar to the Android app, but without Kindle support; though the Chrome browser supports Kindle. MP3 audiobooks are now covered, which is partially good news. The problem there is that MP3 audiobooks only make up 68~75% of a library's audiobook collection, while WMA covers the remaining balance. Hey, partial support is better than no support.

OverDrive has 8 book formats --> compatible -- not compatible

It is actually the android app running on chromebooks. Google has been slowly bringing Android apps to chromebook.

I wonder why it doesn't have Kindle support like the Android app on an Android device?

Good news for audiobooks.

But one annoying thing for ebooks is that there's no way to maximise the app or make it go full screen, at least on my ARM Chromebook.
