Alexa, the voice assistant from Amazon, is typically known for playing music, providing search answers, reading the weather forecast or even writing a shopping list. It’s also compatible with an ever increasing list of home appliances from TVs to washing machines. And, as of today, we are delighted to announce that Alexa can also tell you when you're working next!

Asking Alexa for your next shift details couldn’t be easier— Amazon’s household helper uses "natural language processing", so you can phrase your questions to it in conversational English, such as:

when’s my next shift? or What time does my next shift start?
