Amazon Echo is getting a nice new feature: you can now add events to your Google calendar.
All you have to do is say something like ‘Alexa, add ‘camping with Nate’ to my Calendar for 9am this Saturday’ and she’d put it right in your calendar so you don’t forget we’re going camping this weekend.
Before this update, Alexa could tell you what was already added to your calendar, but the Echo was unable to add events itself.
To activate the feature, just go to the settings screen in the Alexa app and select ‘calendar.’
