4 reasons to try Alexa flash briefings starting right now:

#1. They're 2 minutes long

Alexa flash briefing updates are perfect when you want something fast. Plus, since they’re so short you’ll now have time to listen to a few flash briefings — which means you can be informed on a variety of topics with just a few minutes of listening per day.

#2. They're available from almost every outlet (and on every topic) you can think of

Whether you want daily news updates from the New York Times or daily niche briefings on topics like video games or positivity, chances are you’ll find an Alexa flash briefing that will have it for you.

#3. You can add as many as you'd like to your Alexa flash briefing list

If you added Today’s Forecast and Reuters to your Alexa flash briefing list, you’d hear the day’s 2 minute Today’s Forecast flash briefing directly followed by the Reuters flash briefing.

#4. Just say "Alexa, play my news" to turn on your flash briefing

Listen to Alexa flash briefings while you’re driving, cooking, running, walking or commuting. You can listen to flash briefings on your Echo speaker or on-the-go via the Alexa app on your smartphone.
