You will realize that the Amazon Echo voice assistant, otherwise called Alexa, is an efficiency gadget. Without a doubt, Amazon assembled it to get you to purchase more merchandise, play more music. However, it is quite a lot more.  My most loved Alexa feature is the section where you can associate the assistant to plan arrangements in your Google Calendar.

Alexa Is Your New Super Intelligent AssistantSource : Alexa Is Your New Super Intelligent Assistant



To start with, why associate the Amazon Alexa to your Calendar?

It resembles having an individual upright to deal with your everyday management. This capacity chips away at Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, and Microsoft Calendar and will pair with Microsoft Exchange if you have got Alexa for Business. If you have not yet attempted using voice assistants for increasing your productivity, for example, Siri on Apple/iOS or the Google Assistant on Android gadgets, you are running late in an age when man has made advancements to provide humans with better tools of highly productive progress. It takes a touch of becoming accustomed to making your arrangements easy-going like the human-made intelligence we got to know in movies like Ex-Machina. Once you start doing it- there’s no turning back after that. Alexa can be seated in your lounge or by the pool and talk to you during those boring day hours.

To set up Alexa voice assistant capabilities, you need to go to the upper left corner of your screen, where you come across three little lines. Those open up the different administrator choices for the application driving you at last to the particular calendar you need to set-up with Alexa.

  • Open the Alexa application and then open ‘Settings’ from under the ‘Menu’ option.
  • There, select ‘Email and Calendar’
  • From there, select ‘Include Account’ and the following prompt will inquire as to whether you need to associate your record to Alexa.
  • From there, it gets more straightforward, just saying ‘Alexa, add to my Calendar’ will help you schedule an appointment to your calendar.

A wide range of opening requests, such as, ‘Alexa, schedule dinner with Siri’ will open up follow-up questions, like, ‘Sure, what time and day?’ and after that, you can share information on those data-points, which may further include follow-ups like the name of the place or event. Moreover, the intelligent Echo voice assistant can be asked for the events that have been scheduled for a particular day on the calendar. Once a person gets the hang of it, then he is sure to come back to Alexa for more productivity features.
