Washington DC: Amazon Echo, the voice command device and wireless speaker from Amazon.com, can now also add events to the Google calendar by voice control.
Amazon’s Alexa would add the event to the calendar if asked to do so.
For instance, you can prompt Alexa by saying ‘Add date with Lucy to my calendar for Sunday at 10AM.’
The new service by the Amazon comes only few days after the American e-commerce and cloud computing company announced that the Amazon Echo, an expertly tuned speaker will officially assist Swedish commercial music streaming, podcast and video service Spotify.
Amazon’s Echo device can also be used to order a pizza or book a cab from Uber.
The Washington-based company had also launched new KidsMD skill recently that can help the parents decide to call a doctor for their children on symptoms like fever, headache, rash, cough, vomiting, sore throat, diarrhoea, fatigue or shortness of breath. By using KidsMD on once’s Alexa device, the people would also be able to ask for dosing advice based on their child’s weight or age.
