Even before the pandemic, people were using voice assistants like Siri or Alexa to help them keep track of their day-to-day schedules. Now that so many people are working from home, these virtual assistants are more valuable than ever before. They can help boost your productivity to new levels if you use them properly.

Utilizing a voice assistant for these five tasks will help you increase your productivity while you work from home.

  • Program your digital assistant to remind you of any of your meetings at least 10 minutes before they begin.
  • Ask your digital assistant for news and weather updates to keep you away from unproductive websites.
  • Create a to-do list and use your digital assistant to add and remove items.
  • Have your digital assistant read, listen and respond to your e-mails.
  • Create a morning and evening routine for yourself, then program your digital assistant to help you follow these routines. They can be programmed to wake you up, dim your lights, turn off computer screens and so much more to keep you on track.
