Why can't I sync Google tasks with Amazon Alexa

I’d like to sync Amazon Alexa with Google Tasks but Alexa is grayed out in the setup page.  Why is this?  I would like any tasks added to Google tasks to be synced with Alexa.  I am aware I can do this the other way around (Add a task to Alexa which then syncs to Google) but that’s not what I need to do.  Any ideas?

Hi @AdrianeS 

Good question.

That is because the Amazon Alexa Zap app integration only has 1 trigger available. (0 actions)

 

Do you happen to know why this is?  I’d love to integrate Alexa into several Zaps but none of what I’m looking for is available.  I have to start with Alexa, rather than starting with the program I really need it to start with.

Generally Zap app integrations only expose the common/popular webhook events and API endpoints.

Sometimes webhook events/endpoints aren’t exposed so apps can’t be built on top of other apps.
