Last month we announced List Events in Alexa skills, a feature that allows your skill to get notified when customers add or remove items to their lists on Alexa. Today, we are happy to announce that customers can now create and organize lists of their own choice to capture everyday ideas, plans, and tasks.
Customers can now create shopping lists for individual stores ("Alexa, create a Whole Foods shopping list") or organize their individual To-do lists ("Alexa, add ‘clean the garage’ to John's to-do list"). Finally, customers can also use Lists to plan upcoming activities ("Alexa, add book hotels to my Costa Rica list"). All the lists are accessible on the go via the Alexa app and supported list skills.
