Amazon’s Alexa is capable of completing a variety of tasks, like setting reminders. Now, that particular skill is even more robust.

According to The Verge, Alexa can now tell you when an event is about to occur as well as offer to set a reminder so you don’t miss it. This two-part action offers additional context for each command. In turn, Alexa can do more for you.

You could potentially ask when the next episode of your favorite TV show is, and Alexa can offer that information as well as a reminder. Similarly, you could grant access to other apps and ask Alexa to notify you if you receive a message from a particular person.

There are many creative ways to use this combination of tasks. Now that the update is live, you can put together a variety of different commands. Alexa’s more than just a glorified to-do list and alarm clock, after all.

If you aren’t regularly checking out the official Amazon blog, you may be missing out on all the different skills Alexa can use. Check it out now and then for some new commands to try.
