Did you know the North Platte Telegraph offers local news briefings on the Amazon Echo?

If you have an Amazon device, setting up your news is relatively simple and can be done a couple different ways:

  1. Go to www.amazon.com, search for the skill you want (or go directly to the North Platte Telegraph skill page), select it, and then choose Enable. 
  2. On the Alexa app on your mobile device, open the top left menu, select Skills, search for the skill you want (like North Platte Telegraph), choose the skill, and then choose Enable.

Here are the commands you can give to Alexa to hear your local news briefing:

  • What’s the news?
  • What’s my Flash Briefing?
  • News
  • Flash Briefing

Don’t have an Echo? Buy one from Amazon.
