It was an honor to see that Amazon essentially copied our 1 Radio News PlayMix feature where you can mix short audio headlines from multiple sources (podcasts) to create your own update. Great minds think alike. 😉
However, with 1 Radio News Pro:
- You can take your headlines everywhere with your Android phone.
- You can start your PlayMix (headlines) anywhere you want … among your hourly headlines, daily shows, or weekly favorites.
- You can visually find more on-demand global news in English from obscure hourly, daily, and weekly services.
- Like Amazon Alexa, you can launch your PlayMix with a voice command with our new auto-play option on. But we don’t have other fancy voice commands like … stop. 😉
- 1 Radio News Pro is 97% cheaper than the Amazon Echo and no special device is needed.
That said, our family really enjoys our Amazon Echo and the spread of the concept of a “flash briefing” for news headlines will only send more people our way looking for a different way to experience fresh news on-demand.
