You can easily share your Alexa grocery list via text!
In my household, the grocery list lives on Alexa.
Since the pandemic came into full force a few weeks ago, my husband been responsible for our once-every-ten-days grocery runs (we're trying to reduce to once every two weeks, but not quite there yet!). The problem is that I can easily access the grocery list in my Alexa app, but my husband doesn't have the Alexa app.
The easiest way for me to get the grocery list to him? Text it right from the Alexa app! Here's how:
- Open the Alexa app
- Tap the hamburger icon in the upper left corner
- Tap "Lists & Notes"
- Tap "Shopping List"
- Tap the three dots on the upper right corner
- Select "Share" to bring up your phone’s sharing menu
- Tap "Messages" to text to the person of your choice!
Shopping List Newbie? Say "Alexa, add eggs to my shopping list" (insert item of your choice) to start adding to your shopping list. Say "Alexa, what's on my shopping list?" or, if you have an Echo Show, "Alexa, show my shopping list" to hear or see it.
2 more things you probably don't know about Alexa's shopping list feature:
- Add multiple items at a time. Instead of dictating individual items, you can say "Alexa, add bananas, detergent and milk to my shopping list" and all three items will be added to your list
- New Echo Show scan feature. Say "Alexa, scan this to my shopping list" to add the specific product you like to buy. A screen will come up on your Echo Show asking you to aim the product barcode towards the screen. Once your Echo Show scans the barcode, it will add the product to your shopping list!
