Starting Wednesday, users of the $230 Echo Show will be able to watch a video replay of Fallon’s “Tonight Show” monologue from the previous night. After subscribing to the show’s flash briefing in their settings, users can start playing the video clip on the Echo Show’s 7-inch screen just by saying, “Alexa, what is my flash briefing?”
Currently, the “Tonight Show” flash briefing is the only recap-segment content on Alexa for Echo Show, according to Amazon. But there are several other flash briefings that have been optimized for video on Echo Show from content partners including CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg, TechCrunch and People.
Of course, not many people will be able to catch the first installment or two of Fallon’s monologue replays: Amazon is set to begin shipping the Echo Show on Wednesday, June 28.
“The Tonight Show” video integration with Amazon’s Echo Show is an update to the show’s Alexa flash briefing skill; it’s not a sponsored partnership between NBC and Amazon.
Fallon announced the new monologue flash briefing for Echo Show in tweet. “You know we love the Amazon Echo here at the show, because it works — it actually works,” he said. “You say stuff, it listens to you, it just works,” he said.
