Did you know the Winston-Salem Journal 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:

  1. Go to the Winston-Salem Journal 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 Winston-Salem Journal skill page), choose the skill, and then choose Enable
  3. Simply tell Alexa to enable the Winston-Salem Journal skill, like this: "Alexa, enable the Winston-Salem Journal"

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?
