Have you heard the news? I mean, literally heard it. Now you can, with this new way to get your daily headlines from the Daily Camera.

We just recently launched a 24/7 voice recognition news feed that you can access through your Google Home or Alexa device. Want the latest headlines? Just say, “OK Google, ask the Daily Camera what’s happening.” You can narrow down your search when you want the latest business news (say “business news”), campus events, or Buffs sports.

If you want to go a little deeper, say, “Alexa, tell me more about…” followed by your search phrase to hear a story summary. Go ahead, give it a try. As we accumulate more user search data, this smart technology will fine tune itself to deliver even better results.

These same Google and Amazon technologies are embedded in many devices like autos, televisions, and appliances. That’s a whole lot of tech, but voice recognition news feeds are really very simple to use. Just say the word.

“Tell me, Alexa, what’s the weather going to be like today?”
