Create Your Own Custom News Program with Video Flash Briefings
Queue up video flash briefings just like you’d queue up a music playlist
Flash briefings are 2-4 minute long updates from various outlets, and you can add as many as you want to your customized Alexa flash briefing list. When you say “Alexa, what’s the news?” Alexa will play the ones you added one after the other. Watching Alexa video flash briefings on your Echo Show is like tuning into a short TV news program made just for you. Audio-only flash briefings are great too.
