Creating your own Alexa Flash Briefing Skill

If you're considering creating your own skill based on the Flash Briefing function, you can use your Spreaker podcast's RSS Feed to achieve that.

Indeed, you can limit the number of the episodes from your podcast by adding the ?max_items=NUMBER to your RSS feed URL and defining a number in the field accordingly.

Example:

  • this is an RSS feed containing all the public episodes https://www.spreaker.com/show/1433865/episodes/feed

  • this is the same feed with just the latest public episode https://www.spreaker.com/show/1433865/episodes/feed?max_items=1

To get more info about developing a Flash Briefing Skill, you can read the dedicated Amazon Documentation.
