Peoria Launches Amazon Alexa Briefing

Posted on August 22, 2018 at 5:07 PM by Adam Rosen

Starting this week, Peoria is offering a new way to stay connected by using the Peoria Amazon Alexa “Flash Briefing.” The Flash Briefing is a weekly newsfeed directly through your Alexa enabled device. After enabling the flash briefing on your device, all you need to do is say “Alexa, give me my Peoria News,” or “Alexa, give me my Peoria Flash Briefing.” Peoria updates the news brief every Thursday with news, events and other relevant information. A specific Amazon device is not necessary, you can download the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet. 

Staying connected to our residents is a top priority for the city. As avenues for consuming information shift, Peoria is adapting to the current trends in order to reach as many residents as possible. For more information on how to install and set up your flash briefing, visit their website.
