Amazon Echo can now add events to your Google Calendar

The Echo has been able to read back your schedule for a while -- including shared Google calendars -- but the capability to actually add events is a pretty good addition. Whether or not that's easier for you than shouting "hey Siri" or "OK Google" and adding items without delay by your smartphone remains to be seen, but if Alexa is your digital assistant of choice, you'll definitely suffer this new feature.

The last few Alexa updates have been more focused on enhancing its smart home credentials. In late March, Amazon added the capability for Echo to control the Nest Learning Thermostat, and Lutron's connected lighting systems started working with the Echo earlier this month.
