To add the flash briefings below to your personal Alexa flash briefing list, just tap/click the link to the briefing and then tap/click the “Enable” button.

#1. Reuters

People like the Reuters flash briefing because reporting sticks to the facts, leaving out sensational and opinion stories.

#2. Cheddar

A millennial take on Bloomberg, Cheddar does a good job reporting tech and business news in bite-sized updates.

#3. Your preferred news source like New York TimesFox NewsNPR, etc.

It’s no surprise that the big media outlets all do a nice job with their flash briefings.

#4. Your preferred local news source

Whether you live in Austin, Miami or anywhere else, chances are your local TV station or newspaper has a good flashing briefing. Add it to your personal Alexa flash briefing list by following these instructions.

#5. Curiosity Daily

Curiosity Daily is an award-winning podcast that helps listeners get smarter about the world around us — from outer space to how history shaped the world into what we have today. With 4.6 stars, it’s one of the top-rated flash briefings. Note that it runs closer to 10 minutes.

#6. Digg

Digg combs the internet to bring listeners the most interesting headlines. The only downside is that the flash briefing is read by Alexa, but since the briefing is so short I don’t mind so much.

#7. Niche flash briefing for your interests

Whether you’re interested the Dallas CowboysGamingGardening, Instagram or really anything, you’ll find a flash briefing (probably a few!) on the topic.
