On settings then you're going to scroll down and you're going to see music on that then what you're GonNa do if you haven't already, you're going to click on link new service and you will see an option there for apple podcasts you'll see the option therefore apple music if that's something that you would like Once, you have done that you link the account and it is ready to go. Pretty cool. And then you can say things like Lexi play. Insert the name of your favorite podcast on Apple podcasts or read them the name of the podcast on Apple podcasts seed you have to say on Apple podcasts unless you make it your default music player and you could choose to do that i. personally haven't because I would tend to use spotify as my default music player but that definitely is an option for you nevertheless I think this is pretty cool.

Big Breath there lots and lots of information really fun things. I'll tell you the Canadians.

"Four Wednesday and today I want to tell you about a report that came out from voice. Bought DOT AI. And if you don't know voiced by they're actually a really fantastic publication that covers all voice technology. Not Just Lexi but what they were reporting is that there's a new data that showing that these skills launched in two thousand nineteen were the lowest number When you compare it to any of the year dating back to two thousand and sixteen th the reason I want to highlight. This is because they also did publish some Canadian numbers and I just WanNa give you a sense of what. The numbers are in Canada in terms of the number of skills. That are in Canada right now. So this data is now about a year old but this is what they're reporting and they say that in January twenty nineteen the total count of lexi skills and Canada was twenty two thousand eight hundred and seventy three now about halfway through the year so in July of twenty nine thousand nine hundred the total count was was twenty five thousand one hundred and ten so if I do my math right. That means that we're looking at about an increase of give or take but roughly twenty five hundred skills between January of two thousand nineteen in July of two thousand nine hundred and they reported the number of skills that are out as of January twenty twenty and that number was twenty five thousand nine hundred fifty. So that's only about eight hundred or so increase in the number of skills in the last six months of two thousand nineteen why that is. We're not totally sure. It could be that. There was a reduction in the incentives to US developers who are launching US skills. And if there's a reduction in incentives then they may also be less likely to be producing skills for Canada as well so this may have an impact on the skills that are coming to Canada. It's hard to say it's interesting in its data. That'll be interesting to continue to follow and see if there's any uptake on this going forward. I still obviously think that Lexi is just gaining traction when it comes to users so we'll have to keep an eye on this interesting stuff. Hope you're having a great day and oh I just want to remind you I do have a contest going on right now for creating a logo for my personal brand. Dr Terry Fisher. If you WANNA see the details you can win some prizes And if you know anybody. That's a graphic designer them. Please share it you just go to Al a in Canada dot ca slash logo contests.

"Hey Dr Terry Fisher here and let's get right to the flash briefing for today. Here is a really really good piece of news for Canadians. I think this may help us to get a lot more skills in Canada than we currently have and this is a little bit of news that I want to let you know about. I was made aware that Amazon has just change their back end. When it comes to developers setting up their skills he C- previously when when a developer launched a skill they had to select which locale they wanted to be an and most of them of course have been set up to be launched in the United States. And what a lot of developers just actually didn't realize is that they have to opt in to have the skill launch and Canada. As well and I can tell you from personal experience. I've spoken with developers and they're quite shocked to hear that the skill is not available in Canada. Anyway the good news is that Amazon has just made a feature available in the back end when developers are creating their skills that allows them to just select a little check box and that will then push the skill to all the English speaking locales. Now that's good because it's going to help the developers to get these skills into Canada. More readily the downside. There's a downside is if you know. Developer wants to customize something for a country. It's GonNa be hard to do that. They won't be able to use this feature nevertheless. I think this is a good thing. It's going to help us Canadians. When a lot of the skills are not in Canada and now it really is as simple as a developer. Just choosing check box and the skill will come to Canada. So let's keep our fingers crossed that we see more and more of the skills that we want here. I think it's great. Good move by Amazon. And we'll see what happens right and hopefully we'll see more skills in Canada. Remember there's the contest going on right now to win echo show five. You can help me. Design LOGO FOR THE BRAND. Dr Terry Fisher. Check it out at AOL in Canada DOT CA slash local contest. Have a great talk to you tomorrow. BRIEF CAST DOT FM..

"Skills Hey there's terry here and I've got your flash briefing today one of the big requests that I often hear about is recipes here in Canada and I want to let you know about a particular skill clove chef and that she talked about this before and I've had the CEO cliff on the podcast. But I wanNa let you know. They're doing some incredible stuff. And if you're looking for a really comprehensive cooking skill than I would highly recommend recommend close. Jeff they've got a number of different features built into their their technology and they describe themselves as the Google maps of cooking. Which actually I think is pretty good. Good some of the things that they say so. They say that they can take written recipes and turn those into conversations so it can actually teach you and walk you through how to prepare recipes. They can also help you discover new recipes with interactive content based on your personalization of what you'd like what you don't like Cetera. They can provide shop -able recipes so that you can identify and create ingredient lists that then you can use and it actually can act as a meal tracker as well so pretty cool. I would highly recommend that you checkout clove shaft as the skill because I think you'll find very valuable and today also WanNa give a shout out to you George who left eight five star review for the flash briefing so George. Thank you very much. I really appreciate that. And he writes I on my list love. Terry's flash briefing. It's I on my newsletter every day. Clear concise and informative.

There were other factors involved but nevertheless the apple music service is now available to listen to on Amazon Lexi here in Canada and and so because this has been such a big feature in such a requested feature.
