Amazon today announced that is enabling Alexa to notify users up to 24 hours before a deal becomes available for an eligible item on the wish list, in the shopping cart, or saved for later.
According to Amazon, users that had an eye on the Kindle Paperwhite, for example, can use this new feature to get advanced notice of an upcoming deal on the item from Alexa.
Amazon says Alexa can order the item for users. Users can say “Alexa, buy it for me,” and when the deal is available, Alexa will use the default payment and delivery address in the Amazon account to make the purchase.
Once the order is placed, users receive a notification on the phone via the Amazon app and an email confirmation of the order details.
