A recent update for Alexa has added the built-in ability to connect Alexa with Outlook.com or Office 365 – giving users the ability to use the Outlook.com or Office 365 calendar for making appointments and listening to upcoming tasks. Prior to the update, only Google calendars were available.
Here’s how to quickly set this up:
- In the Alexa app or on the web (http://alexa.amazon.com), open the Settings menu.
- Go to Calendar.
- Locate the Microsoft area and tap or click to initiate the process of linking your Outlook.com or Office 365 account to Alexa services.
Once the linking is complete, you’ll see the various calendars hosted by Outlook.com or Office 365 and be able to choose them. You’ll also now see how many Outlook.com or Office 365 calendars are in use, be able to choose between the different calendars, and also unlink the calendars.
