Time Inc.’s Cozi Family Organizer Announces Voice Integration with Amazon Alexa

20 Sep

Cozi, a Time Inc. brand and the leading family organizing app, announced that Cozi Lists and Alexa Lists will automatically sync, making it easier than ever to manage tasks and remember what to buy at the store.

Cozi and Amazon Alexa teamed up so that people who use Cozi can now dictate their shopping list items and to-dos to Alexa using hands-free, voice-controlled devices like Echo and Echo Dot, and they will appear in Cozi. Alexa will now also read aloud the Cozi Shopping List and To Do List.

For example, Alexa users can say “Alexa, add milk to my shopping list” and that item will be available on a Cozi Shopping List, as well as on the Alexa Shopping List. Because Cozi and Amazon worked together on this feature, no special keyword is needed when speaking to Alexa. To get started, people who have a Cozi account should go to the Alexa App and search for Cozi in Skills.

“The 20 million family members who have signed up for Cozi love it because it keeps everyone on the same page, which is more important than ever during this busy back to school season,” said Will Friedman, President of Cozi. “By collaborating closely with Amazon, we’ve been able to make it easier than ever for families to use Cozi, whether they are on their mobile device, at their computer, or standing in their kitchen.”

In July, Cozi reached a milestone of 20 million registered users, expanded its offerings on Microsoft Windows and announced a special edition of the app that is styled by Erin Condren.
