#SneakyReith on the astons on the BBC News update on Alexa devices with a screen this morning. ๐Ÿ‘€

I also heard the new theme tune on my Google Home last night ๐Ÿ‘€ Dare I say it but the rebrand must now be immanent...

Are you sure that wasn't just Amazon's insertion of stock sounds, or do they actually play the BBC News theme when you check the news updates?


Can do it on an Android phone too, "OK Google, play me the news" or similar. Would be surprised if what sounds like hand-claps makes it into the television theme though, it sounds more like something that'd be used for news on BBC Three if that was still a thing.

Theyโ€™ve changed it where it now plays the theme for a few seconds before and after the bulletin
