You have been able to use Amazon Alexa devices to play music, get the weather information, listen to books, control your smart home and more. An announcement that Amazon did yesterday confirms that their devices now also work with your Office 365 Calendars.
Amazon Alexa has already been working with other services like Outlook Calendar, Gmail, Hotmail etc. The main difference between Office 365 Calendars and the other mentioned services, is that Office 365 is mainly made for business use while the others are made for consumers.
You can link your account in the Settings menu inside the Alexa application if you want to enable this feature. Then, Alexa will be able to help you organize your day. You can for an example, add new meetings and other events to your calendar. Of course, you can also ask Alexa to tell you about your calendar by saying “Alexa, what’s on my calendar?”.
We have seen that Amazon is adding more and more applications to their Alexa, and this is for sure not the last time. Alexa has mostly been for fun until now, but if more business-related apps would be available on the Amazon app store it might result in that many businessmen and women would have an Amazon Alexa device in their office.
