Alexa Echo : How to set reminders, alarms, timer and list with it

Alexa Echo

The Alexa Echo Device helps you with your daily work and appointments and meetings. Plus, with Alexa your service, you can set an alarm to wake up early in the morning, or alert you when a call or any message arrives. It can help you do things you can’t even imagine. In addition, you can add items to a to-do list or shopping list. Alexa will help you through any eco device, many third-party Alexa gadgets and the Alexa app.

Here’s how you set your everything with Alexa.

Set Up Alexa Reminders

Well, I don’t know about you but everyone needs short-term alarms to help remember certain activities or events. When the reminder arrives at the appointed time, Alexa shouts “This is your reminder” and then she tells you twice.

One disadvantage is that the reminder only closes on the Echo device on which you set it. Thus, if you have more than one Echo device, be sure to set a reminder on the device you use frequently. As a backup, Reminder also appears on your mobile device via the Alexa app.

To set one, say “Alexa, create a new reminder”. Alexa Echo will ask you what the reminder is for. Tell Alexa what it is, such as “time for school or college,” “for jogging” or “go to somewhere.” After that, Alexa asks you the date and time. You could say something like “Today at 5pm,” “Tomorrow at 1pm,” or “July 10 at 8am.” To chase, provide all the details of the reminder in a single word. Such as: “Alexa, remind me to go to school at 12:00 this afternoon”.
