Home » Amazon Echo’s Alexa can now read your Outlook calendar

If you thought that Alexa, the digital assistant that comes bundled with Amazon’s Echo home assistant device, needed any more features, you’re in for a treat. The brand new functionality of reading a user’s Microsoft calendar has recently been added.

If you’re looking for a new way of keeping track of all your scheduled meetings and appointments, you can connect Alexa to your Microsoft account and give the digital helper the ability of peering through your Microsoft calendar for things she can memorize for you and help you with.

Allow Alexa to read your Microsoft calendar

When you head over to the Settings section of Alexa, you will see the option of coupling it with an account under the Calendar tab. Once you select the Microsoft account you wish to be synced with Alexa, you will receive a prompt window. Here, you will have to fill out your account credentials so that it may finalize the connection. You can achieve this through the Alexa app as well as the website.

New kid on the block

The ability of doing this with Google accounts was already there, but now users can opt to integrate Microsoft accounts as well, which is a great step forward. While there are a lot more people that use Google’s services over Microsoft’s, now the entire spectrum can benefit the from the functionalities of Amazon digital assistant.
