How to use reminders with Alexa

In this article, you will learn how to use various voice commands to set up reminders with your Alexa assistant.
Alexa can memorize a task or action and reminds it to you at the desired time within the next 20 years. Even if you have more than one Alexa device, the reminders will only be announced on the device you have given the instructions to.

When a reminder is due

When a reminder is due, Alexa sounds a short ring twice in a row followed by her reminder message. If you are not near your Echo/Alexa device at that time, you may not hear it and miss it. Luckily a reminder notification also appears on your phone with the Alexa app installed.
