Alexa Talking Clock : AppDaemon App (HASS)
Amazon Alexa will keep on reminding you of the time from morning till night and also courteously greet with a good morning, good afternoon, and a good night & sweet dreams all without you having to lift a finger (or speak a word). Sweet!

Thank you for your time! (get it ;)
This app was a result of my amazing wife's request (who is a mother of 2 beautiful princesses BTW) to help her manage her time wisely ;). So this is dedicated to my wife Reena, without whom this world would not be worth my time :)
This also wouldn't be possible without the amazing work done by the developers and community at Home Assistant, and of Keaton Taylor and Alan Tse on their Alexa Media Player integration for Home Assistant. https://github.com/custom-components/alexa_media_player
Ever since we've set this up in our home, it has become an indispensable part of our lives. It's amazing to see how a simple reminder of the current time in the day can make people more efficient :), I hope this app helps others as it has helped us.
If you like my work and feel gracious, you can buy me a beer below ;)
