Alexa users can now access podcasts and podcast networks like GrokTALK! when they enable the Spreaker Podcast Radio Player on their Device.
Once enabled just say, “Alexa, open Spreaker” – “Find GrokTALK!” or ‘Play the Steve MacDonald Show’ (which may be how Spreaker sees that feed), or search for any of the thousands of other podcasts available.
Spreaker’s description from Amazon.com is on the jump.
Spreaker will find and play any podcast you ask for!
With over 50,000 shows to choose from, it’s the perfect place to listen to your favorite podcasts—and to keep discovering great new content. You can navigate thousands of podcasts and find hits like This American Life, The Joe Rogan Experience, or the TED Radio Hour. And never miss the latest episodes of renowned series like Lore, Crimetown, or The Moth.
To start listening to a podcast, simply say “Play” followed by the podcast’s name. For example:
“Play Pod Save America”
Or if you want to pick up where you left off on an episode, say:
If you’re having trouble finding a podcast, you can search for it by saying just part of its title. So, to catch up on the award-winning show S-Town, search for it by saying:
“Alexa, ask Spreaker to search for ‘town.’”
Spreaker will suggest podcasts with related content and say “Would you like to play this?”
When you hear the one you were looking for, just say “Yes.” Otherwise say “Skip” to hear the next related suggestion.
Keep browsing to your heart’s delight! You can always listen through the last search results again by saying “Repeat,” or, to cancel the search, just say “Stop” or “Nevermind.”
Once you’ve found what you’re after, Spreaker will start playing the first available episode of that podcast. You can freely explore the whole series, both older or more recent episodes, by saying “Next,” “Previous,” or “Skip.”
And you can always take a break by saying “Pause” or “Stop.”
