Some time ago, Amazon announced the integration of iCloud Calendar and its Amazon Echo speakers. And if you owned both an iPhone and Amazon smart speaker then, you may already use this handy feature. But if you’re new to the combination of iPhone and Alexa, this tutorial is for you.

What better way to take advantage of your Amazon Echo than to manage your events and appointments? Here’s how to use iCloud Calendar and Alexa on your Amazon Echo speaker.

Connect iCloud Calendar to Alexa

Assuming you already use the Alexa app on your iPhone with
your Amazon speaker connected, go ahead and open the app. Then, follow these
steps to connect your iCloud Calendar.

1) Tap the top
left button to open the menu and
select Settings.

2) Scroll down to
and tap Email & Calendar.

3) Tap the plus sign next to Apple (Calendar).

4) Follow the
instructions to link your account. In summary, you’ll need to log into your
Apple ID account online, generate an app-specific password, and then enter that

by writing it down.)

5) Once you have
successfully linked your iCloud Calendar to Alexa, you can visit the Settings in the Alexa app to confirm.
