CNBC Flash BriefingCNBC announced Wednesday that its “CNBC Flash Briefing” is now available for Amazon Alexa-enabled devices in Great Britain.

The announcement means Alexa users in the UK will now be able to access localized news updates to keep up with world markets and business news, anchored by CNBC’s global news teams based in London and Singapore.

Users with an Alexa-enabled device can add CNBC to their Flash Briefing playlist under settings in the Alexa mobile app. Once added, users can use their voice to just ask “Alexa, what’s my Flash Briefing?” or “Alexa, what’s in the news?” to hear the latest.

In June, CNBC updated the CNBC Skill and video flash briefing on the new Amazon Echo Show.

The CNBC Skill provides users with displays and touch screen elements to complement all of the existing offerings on other Alexa devices including the top business and market news, U.S. market updates, and quotes for stocks, ETFs, futures and indexes.
