Once a user installed a skill on echo through Alexa, user should be able to get notifications from the server, based on the time and location. I hope after few years since the launch, this is something that can be done. e.g. I want to get a notification or alert to pick up my kids from school without asking or setting alarm/reminder on Echo.
Other example could be to get notification about my flight time and if its delayed or not. The whole concept of ASKING does not make sense if we the Developers like to make AI smart apps.
