This disclosure describes techniques that enable conversational news interaction. Per the techniques, a virtual assistant application that is configured to access the latest news, provides summaries of news items to a user on demand in a hands-free or screen-free manner. The user can skim through the recited summaries, and if a news item of interest is found, access greater detail by engaging in a conversation with the virtual assistant, e.g., by asking questions.
