Amazon Alexa Now Supports iCloud Calendars

Amazon today announced an update to their voice assistant, Alexa. As of today, you can connect your existing iCloud calendar to a device like your Amazon Echo through the Alexa app on your smartphone. It’s currently live in the US, UK, and Germany.

Using Alexa, you can use your voice to add or hear about upcoming calendar appointments which will sync across all your devices. According to Amazon, this feature has been a long time coming for consumers. In fact, it’s been a “top requested feature” as of late which undeniably makes sense since many people use an iCloud calendar whether for personal or business reasons.

Now with iCloud calendar support, Alexa can also read your Outlook and Office 365 calendars, your personal Gmail calendar, and even your G Suite calendar for work. Not many other calendars need to be added to make this a full experience, so whatever type of calendar you use, chances are Alexa can talk to it.
