We introduced Alexa five years ago, and early on customers began to rely on Alexa for day-to-day tasks such as setting their morning alarm, managing their schedules, creating reminders, to-do lists, routines, and more. After receiving a number of stories and reviews from customers, we noticed a trend: many customers were using Alexa to remind them to take medications on a regular basis. Some customers shared feedback to improve the reminders feature for this use case—for example, by adding more time frames like “twice a day”—and others shared personal stories about how this feature benefited them and their families. With each story, we continued to think about how we could help customers track and manage their health and wellness from home.
