Smart Speaker Listening

Whether it's Alexa or Google, you can now listen to WRVO on your smart speaker. Just ask to play WRVO.

If you have an Amazon device, powered by your trusty helper Alexa, say "Hey Alexa, play WRVO." This works for all Amazon smart speakers: the Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show and Echo Spot. If you're interested in our other streams, just specify which you'd like to listen to by saying " WRVO 2." or " WRVO 3."

A new feature, exclusive to Alexa, let's you catch up on "Morning Edition," complete with the latest local news and our regional weather forecast. Starting at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday, you can ask Alexa to " Morning Edition" to hear a full hour of the program. "Morning Edition" is available via Alexa until 3 p.m. each weekday.

It's a similar process if you have a Google Home, Google Home Mini or Google Home Max, you can say "Okay Google, play WRVO."

You can also ask these devices to do a few other things, like " the latest news from NPR," or " theĀ Freakonomics Radio podcast."

With more options for smart speakers and other home-listening devices coming out every year, we'll continue to update this page. Have a question specific to your listening? You can email us with your inquiry and we'll do our best to get you an answer.
