Acast helps you connect to Amazon's skill for the smart speaker

Updated over a week ago

Alexa Flash Briefing provides a quick overview of news and other content such as comedy, interviews, and lists.

It's a little more complex to set up than some other apps, but folks are quite excited about the opportunity to get their shows on Amazon's smart speaker. If you're interested in turning your show into an Alexa Flash Briefing Skill, you'll need to create an Amazon Developer Account, and you can follow this guide here.

For the Flash Briefing, you may wish to use a special, shorter version of your RSS feed. 

1. Click on the "Distribution" button at the top of your show's dashboard.

2. Scroll down to the "Other Integrations" section and select "Alexa Flash Briefing."

3. You'll find a URL that you can copy, specifically for Alexa.

You'll notice that it is your feed URL with a slight modification at the end
