How to listen to APR via your smart speaker device

Do you have a smart speaker device like an Amazon Alexa or a Google Home?

Simply tell it to “Play Aspen Public Radio” or “Listen to Aspen Public Radio” to make sure you’re streaming your local member station. You can also say “Play K-A-J-X” or “Listen to K-A-J-X.” Note: Currently the streams are delivered via TuneIn Radio. This will be shifted soon so NPR is streaming instead.

If you would like to play a podcast, say “Play [name of podcast]” or “Listen to [name of Podcast].” The podcast you select will be delivered to your smart speaker device via an RSS feed.

If you would like to listen to the NPR newscast, say “Play the news” or “Listen to the news.” These are also delivered to your smart speaker device via an RSS feed.

If you would like to launch NPR One on your smart speaker device, tell it to “Enable NPR One” and you will be prompted to your app, where you can link your NPR One account. If you follow a podcast via NPR One, episodes that are new to you will appear at the top of the flow. If you would like to hear the latest local and national newscast, say “Ask NPR One to play the latest news.” If you would like NPR One to recommend a podcast based on your profile preferences, say “Ask NPR One to recommend a podcast.”  In addition, you can use your smart speaker device to rewind and fast-forward, skip a story, mark a story as interesting, or request more details from a story.

These commands for NPR One will work on your Google Home, Amazon’s suite of smart home assistants and the Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch.  Note: If you do not yet have a NPR One account, you will have to set that up through your computer. Click here to get started.
