Add the Google calendar and create to-do list in the Alexa app
Google services are becoming more and more important in people’s lives. That is why it is normal that they try to integrate with other products such as the Amazon Echo. With this Amazon gadget that integrates Alexa, you can see whether and traffic updates, and you can even listen to Audible books on your Echo speaker. So why not get more out of it by integrating it with your Google calendar?
Set up the Google calendar with the Amazon Echo and Alexa
By integrating both tools you can ask Alexa to tell you when is your next task or appointment and thus help you plan your day. So that you integrate both tools well, today we will teach you how to configure the Google calendar with the Amazon Echo.
How to add the Google calendar in the Alexa app
To get the most out of the Amazon Echo with Alexa, you must link your Amazon account with your Google account. You have to follow the following steps to do it.
- Open the Alexa application on your mobile.
- Press More and open the Settings.
- In ‘Alexa Preferences’ select Calendar.
- Select the Google calendar, press next and link your Google account with that of Alexa.
Once this is done, you can configure the calendars by performing the same actions. You must choose the calendars that you want visible and the ones that you will use by default for new tasks. You can also use Microsoft calendar or Apple calendar.
Create your to-do list with Alexa and Google Calendar
You will not only be able to review all the tasks that you have pending, but also create new tasks. To do this you must say ” Alexa, write on the calendar appointment with the dentist on Friday at 2 in the afternoon.”
In order to add a new task to the list, it is important that you start by saying “Mark it on the calendar” because if you use another phrase it is possible that it will take the task as a reminder.
If you want to know what your next appointments are, you should ask, “Alexa, what’s on the calendar?”
That’s how easy it is to integrate the Google calendar with Alexa. You can now see the Google calendar on your Amazon Echo. You can also do the opposite and set Alexa as your voice assistant on Android and take advantage of Amazon’s assistant on your smartphone.
