Echo Flash Briefings
« on: December 28, 2016, 09:57:51 am »
Ok downloaded the app and version is 1.24.986.0.

What I am looking for is to add more flash briefings. However when I go into settings and flash briefings I don't have the option of get more flash briefings.

anyone know how I can get this so I can add more?

cheers

It isn't directly under the "Flash Briefing" header? Click that and it should go to a searchable list. If you don't see that, I would uninstall/ reinstall the app and see if that works.

Do you have a UK Amazon account? If so, you only see a number of standard Flash Briefing sources you can enable or disable (it looks like around 15 including the Weather Forecast to me) and there is no link to get any more.
I'm assuming that this is because the Flash Briefing API is currently only available in the US, so in the UK we are limited to the standard ones for now.

To add to that, in the U.K. there doesn't appear to be an option to order the Flash Briefings.

In the U.K. I have 14 possible sources for Flash Briefings.
