Did you know the Omaha World-Herald offers local news briefings on the Amazon Echo?
If you have one these devices, setting up your news is relatively simple and can be done a few different ways:
- While using your Alexa device, say “Alexa, enable the Omaha World-Herald skill”
- Go to www.amazon.com, search for the skill you want (or go directly to the Omaha World-Herald skill page), select it, and then choose Enable
- On the Alexa app on your mobile device, open the top left menu, select Skills, search for the skill you want (like Omaha World-Herald), choose the skill, and then choose Enable
Once this is done, you can speak one of these commands to Alexa, and you’ll hear your news briefing:
- Flash Briefing
- What’s the news?
- What’s my Flash Briefing?
Don’t have an Echo? Buy one from Amazon.
