Alexa Improves List-Making

Hat tip to the “Rain” agency for pointing out this c-net article about how Amazon has improved how Alexa can help you be a taskmaster. Here’s the intro:

Adjusting to a new schedule during quarantine is tough. You’re now at home, except for trips to the grocery store and other essential errands, you’re missing friends and family who you usually see weekly, and your days seem to run together. To help you better adjust, Amazon has released new features for its Echo speaker to help you maintain a balance.

For example, Amazon has created two new routines specifically for staying at home that can help you schedule the day. I’m looking forward to using this one because I personally lose track of time when working from home and forget that I need to stand up and stretch.
