Alexa will now help you keep up with the United States presidential election, the NBA and bad weather

Amazon is improving Alexa’s flexibility as a smart home assistant with a host of new skills that she has added over the past month.

First, Alexa will help you get ready in the morning as Alexa will now be able to track your daily journey, traffic conditions and even send directions to your phone. Amazon provides the example of saying “Alexa, how is traffic going to the airport” to summon a route and then add “Alexa, send it to my phone” to send it to your phone. There you can start navigating in Google Maps or any default navigation app you have installed.

Alexa will also let you know when there is bad weather in your area, but you will have to ask for it first. Amazon says you can use the “Alexa, tell me when there is a strong weather alert” command to receive a proactive notification whenever there is a severe weather warning.
