Amazon Alexa is one of the most popular voice assistant apps you can use, and it’s available on a number of Amazon products like the Fire TV and various Echo products.
Aside from being able to play music and order stuff from Amazon, she can also help you manage shopping lists.
To add an item to your shopping list you simply need to say “Alexa, add eggs to my shopping list” and she will add eggs to the list. You can replace “eggs” with any other item to add that item instead.
But once you have added those items you might be wondering how to view the list so that you can go shopping.
You can view your Amazon Alexa shopping list on an iPhone by opening the Alexa app, tapping the three lines at the bottom-right of the screen, choosing Lists & Notes, then selecting the Shopping List.
Once you know how to find the Alexa shopping list you can use it when you go grocery shopping, you can use it to buy items from Amazon, or you can manually edit it through the app.
