The Amazon Echo is by far my second favorite product made by Amazon, next only to the Fire TV of course. One thing that makes it so great is the aggressive rate at which Amazon is adding features to the device. Just this week, Amazon added Google calendar support. You can now ask “Alexa, What’s on my calendar?” and hear your next 7 events. If you want to check something more specific, you can say “what’s on my calendar Saturday?” or “what’s on my calendar tomorrow at 9PM?” to get a specific day or time’s events.
Echo can’t add events to your calendar yet, but given how often new capabilities are being added, I’m sure that’s coming down the line. In May alone, Echo received additional flash briefing sources, the ability to re-order Prime products, access to Prime Music stations, and integration with IFTTT. I look forward to see what June will bring and can’t wait for Fire TV integration of some sort. Those of you with Echo’s, what are your thoughts so far and what do you want to see in the future?
