What's better than hearing Alexa tell a dad joke? Having her keep you up-to-date on the latest in tech.

Starting today, you can add CNET to your Flash Briefing on Amazon Echo. In it, you'll hear one of CNET's voices -- such as Jeff Bakalar or Bridget Carey -- tell you what's happening in tech in 90 seconds or less.

Here's how: In the Alexa app, open Settings from the left sidebar and tap Flash Briefing. Hit Get more Flash Briefing content and search for CNET News. Tap Enable Skill and you're all set! You can get the news from CNET -- and any other briefings you enabled -- by asking Alexa, "What's new?" or "What's my Flash Briefing?"

Check in with Alexa every morning, so you can get the rundown before you head out the door.

Welcome to the team, Alexa! We know you'll mostly be working from home, but we're excited to have you on the roster.
