We appreciate finally having a skill capable of providing us with such content, although we regret that there is not yet a single French one. Its creator announces the imminence of the provision of French channel flows. Let’s hope that he gets his way, because as you may know, our channels are generally not very accommodating in this matter. Anyway, we give this skill 3 stars because it works perfectly well, but some menu items are still in English and it does not offer any FR content yet. We will probably review our rating after the update.
