Other routine options will arrive over the coming weeks, including the ability to time them to sunrises and sunsets. If you’ve linked your Gmail or Outlook account to Alexa, you can add email updates to routines. For instance, you can set up a command that prompts Alexa to tell you the news and give you an email update, including the number of new emails in your inbox, each weekday morning.
