Amazon Brings Local NBC Report To Echo’s Flash Briefing

Thanks to its newest update, Amazon Echo can fill you in on your regional news through its Flash Rundown function. Available in a variety of metropolitan local areas, regional news is now available courtesy of numerous NBC regional news stations.

Says Amazon:

You can now get regional news for a dozen significant urban locations as part of your Flash Briefing. NBC regional news stations offer stories from the Bay Local area, New York, Chicago, and more.

You can add news from these NBC feeds to your Flash Rundown by going to the Settings part of your Alexa app. This remains in addition to sources such as NPR and CNN. F

On a lighter note, to celebrate the release of Disneys Finding Dory, Echo can now wake up to the voice of Crush the turtle from the Finding Nemo and the brand-new sequel. You can set the Crush alarm tone from the Finding Dory option in the Timers and Alarms portion of the Alexa app.
