    Amazon just added another improvement to the Echo device. Every month (or more) the online e-tailer pushes out an update to the amazing little super-speaker which adds new functionality. This time they added Google Calendar Events integration.

    Once you have gone through the process of linking your Google Calendar within Settings in the Amazon Echo app, you will then be able to access a host of features by simply asking your Echo standard calendar questions. Not only can it update you on your calendar events for today, it can also let you know what's going on in the future by simply asking it about a certain day.

    Amazon indicated they intend to continue adding more functionality to the calendar app over time. Sound off if you have been looking forward to this functionality for your Amazon Echo.

    So the fix for losing SMS notifications is buying an Echo?
