Shopping & To-Do Lists

Alexa keeps you on top of your daily tasks with shopping and to-do lists. Put an end to forgetting to buy that essential item by asking Alexa to add it to your shopping list. All you have to do is use your voice to add items to your list and access it in the Alexa app whenever’s convenient for you.

“Alexa, create a list”
“Alexa, what’s on my shopping list?”
“Alexa, add call Mum to my to do list”
“Alexa, add toilet paper to my shopping list”
“Alexa, what lists do I have?”

In The Kitchen

Alexa is the kitchen whiz you need. Serving up step-by-step guides for everything from pavlova to chicken parmigiana, Alexa will have you dishing up delights.

“Alexa, give me a chicken parmigiana recipe”
“Alexa, how do I make a pavlova?”
“Alexa, what’s the recipe of the day?”
“Alexa, what can you make with carrots and lentils?”
“Alexa, how many millilitres are in a cup?”

In the kitchen


There’s no time for tardiness with Alexa calendars. Simply link your Google, iCloud or Office 365 calendar to Alexa – and you’ll never miss a meeting or social event again.

“Alexa, how do I setup my calendar?
“Alexa, add lunch with Ben at midday tomorrow to my calendar”
“Alexa, what’s on my calendar?
“Alexa, am I free tomorrow night at 8pm?”
