Introducing The Atlantic’s Daily Idea

Jun 18, 2019

The Atlantic introduces The Atlantic’s Daily Idea, a new smart-speaker skill for Amazon Echo and Google Home that intends to delight and surprise listeners with something unconventional: a single, illuminating idea. The skill will deliver a different story every weekday, drawn from among The Atlantic’s most memorable and compelling recent reporting.

Every weekday, when people ask their smart speakers to play The Atlantic’s Daily Idea, they’ll hear a condensed, one- to two-minute read of an Atlantic story, be it “An Artificial Intelligence Developed Its Own Non-Human Language” or “The Case for Locking Up Your Smartphone.” The skill will include reporting from across The Atlantic’s science, tech, health, family, and education sections, as well as the magazine’s archives, representing the work of dozens of writers.
