NPR One is available on Amazon’s suite of smart home assistants, including the Echo, Dot, and other Alexa-enabled devices.
As more than 8.2 million U.S. homes* have adopted smart home assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home, NPR One on voice-activated devices is designed to complement the typical daily activities in their kitchens or living rooms.
“Alexa, play NPR One”
With the simple request, “Alexa, play NPR One,” listeners who have an Alexa-enabled device can seamlessly and conveniently continue with their morning routine or get dinner ready, while keeping up to date on the news and engaging with the high-quality audio storytelling that they know and expect from NPR.
NPR’s timely national and local newscasts are available on demand through the command “Alexa, ask NPR One to play the latest news.” Listeners can also ask for their favorite shows and podcasts with a simple voice command. For example, “Alexa, ask NPR One to play Planet Money,” and the most recent episode will play.
