The benefit of Alexa devices lies in voice recognition. Using vocal commands is super fast and efficient when adding items and to-do’s to your Alexa lists – eliminating the need to reach for your phone. The Any.do Skill for Alexa gives you the ability to effortlessly sync those lists to your devices, without any physical action required on your part. Once your lists are synced, you are free to reorder, prioritize and add reminders to individual tasks as well as view them in junction with your calendar. These lists will sync back and forth from Any.do to Alexa, meaning you can always have Alexa read out your items for you. Staying productive on the go has never been easier!
Be advised that the skill is currently open on selected Amazon stores only, though we do plan on expanding to more international stores in the near future.
