The New York Times expands its briefing series on Alexa

The New York Times is expanding its slate of audio programming to Alexa, with dedicated daily news briefings, quizzes and arts and travel coverage. On weekdays, the paper will offer a news briefing hosted by The Daily's Michael Barbaro. Once you've activated the skill by saying "Alexa, enable The New York Times Briefing," you can hear a rundown of the day's top stories by requesting your flash briefing or asking "what's in the news?" Alternatively, you can ask the voice assistant to play the latest installment of The Daily.
