Amazon Echo is getting even friendlier for anyone who depends on Microsoft to manage their calendars. After extending Calendar support for Outlook accounts earlier in February, Amazon Echo's Alexa now supports Office 365 calendars as well (via TechCrunch).
As with Outlook, getting started with Alexa and your Office 365 account is pretty simple stuff. Just head into Calendar section of the settings in either the Alexa app or website. Once there, you'll have the option to connect a Google or Microsoft account. Just tap or click on Microsoft and you'll be prompted to log in and grant the necessary permissions.
Before Outlook and Office 365 Calendar, only Google's Calendar service was supported. In other words, this is a pretty big deal for anyone who lives in the Microsoft ecosystem either for work or personal use. Once integrated, you can query Alexa about what's on your agenda for the day, or even add new events.
