Alexa for Business Now Lets Users Book Conference Rooms Using Alexa



Starting today, Alexa for Business lets users check availability and reserve conference rooms using Alexa. Finding and booking a conference room for a last minute meeting is frequently a stressful, time-consuming task for many people. With Alexa for Business, users can check the current or future availability of the conference room they are in by asking, “Alexa, is this room free?”, or “Alexa, is this room free at 4?”. Or, they can reserve the room by saying “Alexa, book this room for half an hour”, or “Alexa, reserve this room at 2”. Conference rooms that are open might actually be reserved for a meeting, so users can identify who owns the current reservation by asking, “Alexa, who booked this room?”, and then find out if the meeting is actually happening or not.
