The Alexa Integration
This is one of our most beloved integrations. It is a completely FREE feature and allows users to add tasks via Alexa right into Any.do, with a simple connection. To learn how to make use of this feature, read more here.
Siri & Apple Reminders Integration
If you are an iOS user, most odds are you’re making daily use of Siri. With Any.do’s Siri & Reminders integration you will be able to not only connect Siri to Any.do but also import your Apple reminders straight to the app. To activate the sync from your iOS device, open Any.do -> settings -> Apple reminder – toggle ON.
After activating the integration a new list called ‘Apple Reminders’ will be added to your account and each time you add a task via Siri to your native apple reminders app, it will automatically be synced to Any.do as well!
The WhatsApp Integration
If you’re an avid Whatsapp user, you’re going to LOVE this feature! With this Premium feature, users are now able to interact with an Any.do bot straight from their Whatsapp app, adding tasks and reminders using simple and straightforward natural language. To check out the feature, toggle on the option to receive WhatsApp notifications via the app’s Settings – Integrations screen, of your Premium account. To learn more about how this integration works, read here.
The Google Assistant Integration
Any.do was chosen to be one of the few services that can be integrated with Google’s Assistant. After a short setup, users can connect Any.do with their Assistant and start creating lists and tasks that will sync back and forth from Google to the Any.do app. This is an awesome option for users who heavily rely on their Assistant, or simply find it easier to add items by voice while on the go. Those items can then be managed in your Any.do app and get organized and prioritized using any of Any.do’s powerful feature. You can read more here.
