NBC News says it wants to provide easy, friction-free access to its content at all points of the day — and that includes times when you're not on your smartphone. As such, the media company says it is actively building new experiences and iterating on current products with a focus on "voice," an emerging and dynamic interface that will powerfully help surface its journalism. With that in mind, NBC News has built an experience coming soon to Google Home, where users will be offered different types of news summaries.

For example, a user will be able to say, "OK Google, listen to NBC News" to hear the latest addition of NBC's Nightly News with Lester Holt or receive trending news highlights and headlines from nbcnews.com by calling out, "OK Google, talk to NBC News."

NBC says this is its first version of the product and it is eager to hear feedback.
