Specifically shopping list, but also add reminders
We currently have an Alexa integration via Cortana – https://microsoft-todo.helpshift.com/a/microsoft-to-do/?p=all&s=integrations&f=using-microsoft-to-do-with-alexa-via-cortana&l=en
It’s still in Preview so is only available for US English at the moment.

Please do add this as a native Alexa skill. It is far an away the most popular voice assistant and does a great job categorizing grocery lists. If To Do could take that and improve on it, that would be fantastic. For example to be able to move items from a master grocery list to another list based on store would be great
Nice, the only update to this 4-year old request after two years is that it's gone from "working on it" to "on the backlog".
I was using a third party solution that just quit working. This will single handedly force me to switch to Todoist or something else.

Alexa to Cortana is a terrible experience. I'm not playing a video game. Please add directly to Alexa.

No. We aren’t asking about Cortana. For that matter, just develop a way to sync items from a list on Alexa (voice not required) to a list on To Do. Why is this that hard? Why are you even talking about Cortana? It’s deprecated!
Incredibly disappointing that Microsoft disabled the ability to add tasks using Alexa. This was such a wonderful option. Going to start looking for a new to-do list application.
I love Microsoft To-Do but not having the ability to add stuff on the fly is annoying - this is what technology is about - please link it asap!

Cortana integration? Seriously? Have any of you actually _used_ a voice assistant? We knew this day was coming when Microsoft bought Wunderlist. I had thought we at least had third party integrations that worked. Now "Wonder Do It" has been removed? Time to move on from Wunderlist and Microsoft To Do as we expected. It was simply a matter of time before Microsoft screwed this up.
Your solution is the Cortana skill? What a joke. That method takes 10 times longer than native integration. You just lost a customer.
I recently got this app on my MacBook pro and it made me think wow look at Microsoft upping the user experience game across platforms!! I rely on Alexa a lot when it comes to reminders but keeping track of lists etc on there is just unintuitive and I simply forget about them. I thought wow if Microsoft To Do could sync with my Alexa that would be Awesome! Imagine..when I've set a time for a task reminder even if i were away from my computer, i would get a voice reminder....Then i come on here to see this... Cortana... I don't even use a windows computer at home so that is not an option for me. Bring back the skill please. Be the greatest cross platform Lists and reminders app out there.
Via Cortana ... seriously? If you developed that way at my company you'd be out of a job. So now I have to look for another To Do list app.
Great, why mess with it! The skill was working just fine. Now that it's removed there is no integration and no cortana in UK so we are stuffed. Thanks, Microsoft. I used it every single day with my work and personal life now I am off to find a new to-do list option!
You can't be serious, Microsoft. I've bought an Alexa device because I want to use Alexa and say "add something to my shopping list".
Nobody is standing in his kitchen and first opening the Cortana skill and then adding something to his list.
My wife already refused to do so, it's too uncomfortable to use.
Which in the end means: bye-bye MS ToDo.
why would you remove something that works with the Cortana, which you are sunsetting?
It's very disappointing that the Alexa skills that used to (wonderfully) integrate with ToDo have been removed. What happened? ToDo is dead to me without Alexa integration.
PS: The "answer" currently shown above is a dead link.

Where is the sense? Nobody will start using Cortana instead of Alexa (new invest into a tech that is worse than Alexa!) just for your App🤷🏻♂️ Come on guys I was using wonderlist now using To do with an workaround but only because I need that for Alexa. Saying ‚Alexa add coffee to my shopping list‘ is just comfortable. And no, I won‘t talk with Cortana now, the USP of the app is the speed... #fail
We need Microsoft To do list with Alexa in portuguese. Please!
Sorry but Cortana is such a bad assistant. I have Alexa and do not want to start an app to add something to my Shopping List. Consequence, I will delete Microsoft To Do from my app list on all devices and search for replacement. Microsoft is so bureaucracy, nothing leaned from your Clippit Assistant in Office 2000.

Microsoft announced killing of Cortana on multiple platforms including Android. I see that the tech is going to fade.
We need to have direct Integration with Alexa.
Cortana integration is not the answer. Having to start a conversation with Cortana is far more time and effort than just saying "Add milk to the grocery list". With the recent removal of Wonder Do It and Task in Hand skills, there is no longer a solution. Please do not consider this need met because the community does not consider it met. This missing integration is the only thing that may push our family away from Todo, and I'd really prefer not to.
