Amazon on Tuesday announced that you can now ask the Alexa voice assistant, through your phone or an Amazon Echo, to share your shopping list with friends or family.
It's particularly useful now, during the holidays, in case you want to share your kid's gift list with someone. But it's also useful if a family member is at the store and you want to create a quick list of items for them to pick up, or for people who might be vision impaired and want to create and share a list by voice.
Here's how to use Alexa to send a shopping list to someone.
That's the gist of it. Your family member or friend will receive a notification on their phone and on their Amazon Echos alerting them you've shared the list. And they'll be able to see it and buy whatever you've requested.
