Did you know Alexa can remember things for you?

Just say "Alexa, remember the lemon zester is in the third drawer next to the sink"

Alexa will respond "Okay, I'll remember." The next time you need it, ask "Alexa, where's the lemon zester?" and she'll tell you exactly where you put it. With this super helpful feature, you'll never need to waste time looking for things again -- or looking up the same pieces of information time after time!

Here are 4 things you should ask Alexa to remember:

  1. Where you put something. "Alexa, remember the garlic press is in the silverware drawer." This feature is especially helpful for infrequently used kitchen tools (carrot peeler, garlic press, etc.).
  2. Birthdays & special dates.  "Alexa, remember Jonathan's birthday is May 5" or "Alexa, remember Jamie's anniversary is October 10."
  3. Wifi password.  "Alexa, remember the wifi password is 12345." Now, your guests can just ask Alexa when they visit.
  4. What shoe size your kids wear.  "Alexa, remember that Allison wears a 5.5 shoe size." It gets hard to keep track of ever-changing shoe, clothing, etc. sizes for the whole family!
When you want to retrieve the information at a later date, just ask "Alexa, when is Jonathan's birthday?" or "Alexa, what's the wifi password?"

Alexa to source answers to some questions from Reuters news stories

Amazon will integrate over 45,000 Reuters stories every month into the database Alexa searches when users ask questions relating to the news -- from sports and entertainment to business, politics and breaking news stories.

This is an exciting update for Alexa. Reuters is a trusted news service, and this partnership represents a nice new way for Alexa to get smarter and provide more useful answers to your questions. This is a clear priority for Amazon and comes on the back of announcements that Alexa would start crowdsourcing answers and a partnership with Wolfram Alpha late last year to upgrade Alexa's knowledge on science and math.
