What's new in this version

There's so much new in Libby! * A guided welcome. Libby asks you questions that get you signed into your library quickly, and using your favorite reading device. * A guided menu. We've reorganized the menu to show you the information you need the most. Detailed configuration options are tucked away if you need them. * Setup Codes. Already have Libby on one device? Copy all your cards to your other devices in about 2 seconds. * Much better support. Get in touch with us by asking a question, reporting a problem, suggesting an idea or taking our survey. If you have any difficulties using Libby, let us know! * "Format" as a list preference. You can now exclude ebooks from Libby's results if you're only interested in audiobooks, or vice versa. * Sort your holds by estimated wait time. * Relink your card with one or two taps when your library needs you to sign in again. * Support for the Windows Fall Creator's Update. * Many bug fixes for audiobook playback, and for downloading and storage. * Libby for Windows is more stable — a number of crashes have been addressed.
