Did date night sneak up on you? Before you cancel that sitter ask Alexa to help you make a dinner reservation.

At Amazon’s recent artificial intelligence conference in Las Vegas the company announced some new features for Alexa including asking the voice-controlled assistant to buy movie tickets, make dinner reservations and book that Uber ride.

Amazon is partnering with companies like Atom Tickets, Uber and OpenTable to enable Alexa to become your date night planner with nothing more than voice commands.

As the demonstration showed you can ask Alexa to make suggestions based on the type of food you want to eat and then she will list several options. Once you decide you can ask her to make a reservation and then book an Uber to get there. Amazon plans to roll out the new feature soon.
