Amazon Alexa-powered speakers can do so much more than tell you the time of day, the weather forecast, order your favorite pizza (yes, I done that before) or play music. And, starting today, Alexa can give you a Flash Briefing on Occupational Toxicology, Industrial Hygiene, and Potent Compound Safety.
Adding Potent Compound Safety to your Flash Briefing
To add the “Potent Compound Safety” Flash Briefing to your Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot, on your computer, go to the following link:
You should end up on a page like shown below:
If you are not already signed into your Amazon account, you will need to do so first. This will need to be the same account that your Amazon Echo or Dot is linked. Once logged in click the yellow “Enable” button on the right-hand side of the screen. You can also add the Potent Compound Safety Flash Briefing through your mobile phone, but that’s a little more complicated to explain, but just go to the app, from the hamburger menu (in nerd terms that the 3 horizontal lines that opens up the menu), enter “potent compound safety” in the search all skills box, and the Potent Compound Safety Flash Briefing skill should appear. Select it, then click “Enable.”
Listening to your Alexa Flash Briefing on Potent Compound Safety
To listen to your Alexa Flash Briefing, simply say “Alexa, What’s my flash briefing?” or “Alexa, What’s the news?” To advance to the next item, say “Alexa, next”, to stop, say “Alexa, stop.”
