WHIO is the only Dayton TV station to bring you flash briefings on Amazon’s Alexa. Get breaking news, weather and all the day’s top stories from News Center 7 straight from your Amazon device.
Once you enable the WHIO skill on your Alexa device, all you’ll have to do is say “Alexa, what’s in the news?”
The most popular Alexa devices are Amazon’s Echo and Dot, but Alexa can also be found in phone apps, some new cars, and connected home systems. According to TechCrunch, Alexa is now the most used voice assistant, ahead of Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Google Home.
It’s simple to get started:
• Open the Alexa App
• Tap settings on the left navigation bar, then tap “Skills”
• From the search bar on the Skills page, type “WHIO” and tap the search icon
• Tap “WHIO Dayton Flash Briefing” to get WHIO-TV news and/or “AM 1290 and News 95.7 WHIO” for WHIO Radio news and tap the “Enable Skill” button. Try them both!
• If you would like to hear News Center 7 first, you may want to turn off or move the order of other Flash Briefings by tapping “Manage in Flash Briefing” after you have enabled the skill.

— There were plenty of crowds on Black Friday, but the shoppers that stayed home and took advantage of online sales is on the rise, CNN reported.
American shoppers spent a record $5 billion online in 24 hours, an increase of 16.9 percent in dollars spent on the internet from Black Friday in 2016. Those figures were released by Adobe Digital Insights, which tracks 80 percent of online spending at the 100 largest retail websites in the United States, CNN reported.
Amazon said Friday that orders were being placed “at record levels,” with more than 200,000 toys sold in the first five hours of the day, CNN reported. Amazon did not provide sales figures for the entire day.
While sales boomed online, purchases at malls and large retailers remained strong, CNN reported. Estimates from ShopperTrak, a data analytics company that measures the number of shoppers at stores, said sales at those outlets decreased “less than 1 percent” compared to Black Friday in 2016, CNN reported.
Adobe predicts that Cyber Monday will be even bigger than Black Friday, bringing in as much as $6 billion in digital sales, CNN reported.
