Amazon Echo adds new sources to Flash Briefing

Amazon has detailed the latest update to hit its Echo smart speaker, which brings some new sources of news to Alexa's Flash Briefing feature. You can now have Alexa pull from CNN, Bloomberg Market Minute and Bloomberg Featured Interview. This is in addition to current sources such as NPR, BBC, ESPN Radio and more.

In addition, Alexa has brushed up on her pop culture skills, allowing her to answer questions about your favorite TV shows and movies, including who starred in them, who plays specific characters, and more. Amazon says that Alexa is even keeping up with the campaign trail: just say "Alexa, send Donald Trump to space."

Finally, the Echo has picked up a few more skills from The Huffington Post, Math Kata, and Mojio. And you can now rate and review skills to share your experience with others.
