Here at Engadget UK, we want to deliver the latest technology news to wherever you are, on whatever device you happen to be using. You can already find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube, but today we're adding a new "app" to the mix: an Engadget UK Flash Briefing for the Amazon Echo. Simply install our Echo skill and have Alexa read up-to-the-minute updates on what's happening in the world of technology.

Engadget UK Flash Briefings are free and take just seconds to install. First, head on over to Amazon UK, and then click the Enable button inside the "Get This Skill" box. That's it, you're done. Then, all you have to do is ask "Alexa, what's my Flash Briefing?" or "Alexa, what's in the news?" and the intelligent assistant will take care of the rest. If you have any other Flash Briefings installed, Engadget UK news will simply be added to your round-up.

Currently, the Engadget UK skill is dynamic and will deliver snapshots of the five most recent articles posted to the site. We will continue to add new features over time, including the possibility of video and photo updates for the Echo Show, when it eventually debuts on this side of the Atlantic. If you hail from the US, you can also install the (separate) Engadget Flash Briefing from Amazon.com.

We'd love to hear your thoughts on the new Engadget UK Flash Briefing. Hit us up in the comments below!
