Alexa flash briefings

 

Listen to Your Flash Briefing

With Flash Briefing, Alexa delivers news and content from popular broadcasters, local weather information, and more. Some providers have video flash briefings available to play along with the audio on compatible Echo devices.

To get started, set up your Flash Briefing settings in the Alexa app:

  1. Go to the menu and select Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the Accounts section and select Flash Briefing.
  3. In the On section, use the toggle next to each available news program or service to add it to your Flash Briefing. Select Get more Flash Briefing content to find additional news services in the Alexa Skills store.

You can select Edit Order to arrange when your selected news programs play during your Flash Briefing.

Some programs also have additional feeds you can add to your Flash Briefing. You can find them in the Off section.

Note: Your Flash Briefing settings apply to all Alexa devices registered to your Amazon account, and all users in your home get access to the same Flash Briefing content. However, if you or anyone in your home has a voice profile, Flash Briefing automatically skips stories and news items you’ve already heard. To learn more, go to About Alexa Voice Profiles.
