Cruise News Now On Your Alexa Device



Your smart speaker just got even smarter with the newly launched Cruise Radio News flash briefing skill for the Amazon Alexa. Cruise Radio News Flash Briefing is an audio newscast incorporating the day’s top stories and most interesting pieces of news — giving you all the updates you need in a matter of minutes.

The 90-second flash briefings are updated Monday through Friday and bring you the top three things you need to know for the day.

Users with an Alexa-enabled device can add Cruise Radio News to their Flash Briefing playlist under settings in the Alexa mobile app.

Once added, users can use their voice to just ask “Alexa, what’s my Flash Briefing?” or “Alexa, what’s in the news?” to hear the latest.

You can enable the skill here or follow these steps.

Here’s how to subscribe:
