Finally ordered my Echo and set it up on Sunday – it took less than 10 minutes. So easy, convenient and magical!! HOWEVER: there are a few unforgivable glitches e.g. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to synch my iCalendar with Alexa (she only works with Google calendar – ugh!). Also, cannot get Alexa to give me subway updates – altho I use Google maps for that…..if anyone has any tips, I would appreciate!
In the meantime, I’m looking forward to checking out Alexa’s 1000 skills (up from a mere 35 last year!). So far, I’ve been loving the weather updates, calorie counts and nerdy jokes!!
