Alexa, remember the lemon zester is in the third drawer next to the sink.
It’s surprisingly helpful to have Alexa remember things for you
Don’t forget where you keep those infrequently used kitchen tools — like the lemon zester or garlic press. Or when your friend’s daughter’s birthday is. Or what size shoes your husband wears. Just have Alexa remember!
How to have Alexa remember
Tell Alexa where you’re putting the item
“Alexa, remember the lemon zester is in the third drawer next to the sink.”
“Alexa, remember that Susie’s birthday is May 12.”
Alexa will confirm what you just said and then say “Okay, I’ll remember that.”
Next time you need it
“Alexa, where’s the lemon zester?”
“Alexa, when is Susie’s birthday?”
3 more examples of things to have Alexa remember…
“Alexa, remember that Jonathan’s birthday is May 5”
At a later point… “Alexa, when is Jonathan’s birthday?”
“Alexa, remember that the home wifi password is 692785” (note that for this one, you have to include the word “home” otherwise Alexa gets mixed up)
At a later point… “Alexa, what’s the home wifi password?”
What shoe size your kids wear
“Alexa, remember that Allison wears a five and a half shoe size” (it gets hard to keep track of ever-changing shoes, clothing, etc. sizes for the whole family)
At a later point… “Alexa, what’s Allison’s shoe size?” or “Alexa, what shoe size does Allison wear?”
