Users of Amazon s Alexa virtual assistant can now ask it questions about the contents of their Microsoft-hosted calendars.

On Wednesday, the assistant gained the ability to interact with calendars from Outlook.com and Office 365, similar to how it works with Google Calendar.

Amazon didn t make an announcement for the new feature.

When asked about the change, a spokesperson for the company said that it was designed to only work with personal calendars.

That said, it was possible for me to connect my Office 365 calendar, which is provided through an enterprise subscription.

When asked about what s on my schedule, Alexa answered with the contents of my work calendar.
