Rhodri Talfan Davies, Director BBC Cymru Wales, says: “I’m delighted that, for the first time, news bulletins from Wales – in both English and Welsh – will be available on demand to smart-speaker users.
“With more people than ever before using smart speakers, it is vital that we ensure accurate public information is available to users instantly during the coronavirus outbreak.
“We’ve seen a rapid rise in the number of users accessing our news coverage during the current crisis – and this new innovation will help us meet the unprecedented demand.”
