2 ways Alexa can help you stay on top of the market:

#1. Get market updates in a flash

You may have noticed that I love Alexa flash briefings -- and for good reason! They give small, bite-sized chunks of news in an easy-to-digest way. To keep up on the markets, we recommend adding the CNBC flash briefing to your personal flash briefing list (for those with an Echo Show, it will also include video!). And don't miss Bloomberg Market Minute. To listen for the first time, just say "Alexa, enable Bloomberg" and then ask to hear Bloomberg Market Minute (in the future, you can just say "Alexa, open Bloomberg.").

Pro Tip: History and trivia buffs will love Market Moment, a three minute flash briefing loaded with famous moments in stock market history.

#2. Check stock prices without lifting a finger

Just say "Alexa, what's Coca-Cola's stock price?" (Insert name of any public company!) Alexa can tell you other security prices too. Try "Alexa, what's the price of Bitcoin?" ($10,843 as of this writing). If you have an Echo Show, you'll see a nice chart showing the security's price over the past 24 hours.

"Alexa, play Morning Edition" for localized news from NPR

An NPR themed smart speaker
The last hour of NPR's 40-year-old morning news program Morning Edition is now available via Alexa. Just say "Alexa, play Morning Edition." The first time you listen, you'll be given the opportunity to provide your member station or give your zip code if you don't know your station's name (Alexa will remember your localized station for next time).
