Alexa City Hall

In an effort to stay at the forefront of technology, the City of L.A. has integrated the City's Calendar with Amazon's Alexa, a digital assistant developed by Amazon.com and made popular by the Amazon Echo device. Currently, Angelenos with an Amazon Echo, Amazon Dot, or any other Alexa enabled device can use Alexa to "Ask L.A. City" to begin. Many more features and information will be coming in the near future.

Instructions

To enable the skill on your Alexa enabled device, just say "Alexa, ask L.A. City"
For more information, please visit the L.A. City Skill page on Amazon.

Current Features
