The twice-daily bulletins featuring the latest news headlines, weather, business and sport updates are now streaming to Amazon’s Echo devices.

The bulletins will also stream to Google Home users in coming weeks, as well as to their phone, Android Auto, Bose headphone or Android watch via Google Assistant.

Seven News audio bulletins will be available on Apple’s HomePod, which launches in Australia today.

Audio on demand is a rapidly growing space, especially in-home, and Seven West Media intend[s] to take a leading role with audio content from Pacific and West Australian Newspapers to come.”
