With The Telegraph Flash Briefing for the Echo Show, users are able to ask "Alexa, what's in the news?" in order to receive relevant updates. While there are several services that offer text-to-voice translations, The Telegraph Flash Briefing sets itself apart as all of the content shared is created expressly for the Echo Show to best optimize its capabilities. The news bulletins focus on five key stories that are selected for their interest to The Telegraph's audience.
