News bulletins from BBC Radio Leicester are now available on-demand on Amazon Alexa-enabled devices to anyone who asks for the “BBC Radio Leicester Update” or “BBC Radio Leicester Gujarati Update”.
On-demand news bulletins from BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Wales are now available on Alexa-enabled smart speakers.
Existing customers will need to recontract to receive the deal which was launched alongside the addition of Alexa-enabled voice search to BT TV set top boxes which is rolling out to all users from today.
Using voice prompts, listeners will be able to skip through bulletins to listen to the stories they’re most interested in. In addition, they’ll be able to access any full speeches referred to in bulletins.
