Recently, Amazon has rolled out an amazing update. And this enables Echo users to set reminders on their Amazon Echo. This cool new feature allows users to set reminders for small everyday chores. For example, for diabetics, they can set a reminder to check blood sugar two hours after their lunch. You can ask your Echo to remind you of taking medicine after every meal. Now let’s get down knowing how you can set reminder on Amazon Echo.
It is quite easy for any Amazon Echo owner to create reminder using Alexa. Before you learn to set reminder, you need to make sure that you tell the time with AM or PM.

This obviously applies to users who own more than one Amazon Echo devices at home or office. So without any delay, let’s learn how to set reminder on Amazon Echo.

Amazon has introduced another good feature for Echo users. Named Timers will allow users to set multiple Named Timers and give each timer a name. For example, if you are cooking more than one dish in your kitchen, you can say Alexa how much time left on your ‘chicken’ timer, or how much time left on the ‘rice’ timer.
As of now, the above two features are available for US users, and in the next few weeks, the same features will be available for users in UK and Germany.
