Make interactive, talking stories without coding. Play your story instantly on Google Home.

Overview
Story Speaker lets anyone create talking, interactive stories with no coding required. Just write your story in a Google Doc, push a button, and every Google Home device linked to your account can play it.

You don't need to know how to code. Basic and advanced templates get you writing quickly.

There's a lot Story Speaker can do, including respond to what players say, give random responses, and remember what the player said. 

You can even export your story and so anyone with a Google Home can hear it. (Experimental!)

This is not an official Google project. It's just a fun little experiment.

Typical Google to just abandon stuff without taking it off. Don't waste your time creating a story, because it no longer works on Google Home.

Great work. Seriously amazing. Accessible and easy to use and a lot of potential. Its great to create your own interactive story or just let it read some of the things you'd like to hear. Interaction works seamlessly and there's nothing to setup except for connecting to you Google account. Also works on Google Assistant on your phone. Being able to change the gender of the voice would be appreciated and create more depth in your conversations. But more important the possibility to use punctuation to slow down the reading.

Excellent! I now have a way of getting my favourite poems read out to me on long car journeys - If, Desiderata, To Autumn etc. Up til now you could ask Assistant to "tell me a poem", but not been able to specify a particular one. Enhancements? The voice readout speeds through the text, I tried to slow it down by adding punctuation. Also any way to change the voice to female? Great work.

Pretty interesting! I know the export feature is not stable but, when I export the .js and import them into dialogflow, there are so many issues with the code (semicolons, expressions instead of assignments...), and not worthy for that specific purpose.

A lot of things broken. The forks aren't working and it's just going all over the place. I followed the instructions and template exactly, but I can't get a simple story to play.

Story Speaker is no longer available on Google Assistant (it was an experiment), so don't waste your time creating a story.

This add-on is simple to use and provides great possibilities for story writing by my students. I played with my own children (5 & 8yo) and they loved it! Quick and easy to use
