[Here's how to add The Register and Bee news to your Echo]

Did you know The Register & Bee 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 couple different ways:

  • While using your Alexa device, say "Alexa, enable the Danville Register & Bee" skill
  • Go to Amazon.com, search for the skill you want (or go directly to The Register & Bee 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 The Register & Bee), 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:

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

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