Amazon’s voice-guided speaker juggles your IFTTT tasks

by John_A

Amazon Echo speaker

You can tell Amazon’s Echo speaker to directly control certain apps and services, but what if you want it to send information to other apps that you use more often? That’s where IFTTT’s new Alexa channel might save the day. Give the Echo a command and IFTTT will relay certain tasks to key apps. You can deliver your to-do list to Gmail when you ask the speaker about your itinerary, for example, or add your grocery items to Evernote without touching your phone. Frankly, this makes the Echo a lot more useful in daily life — you no longer have to change some of your app habits to make the most out of Amazon’s audio cylinder.
