When I ask Alexa “How’s my calendar?”, she reads events from my linked iCloud calendar. However, timed calendar events are given a start time one hour earlier than they appear in my calendar. I’ve checked that my Echo and Dot devices are on the correct time zone, as are my Apple devices, and the time zone setting in iCloud.com. Any thoughts on why this might be? Incidentally, when I ask Alexa for the current time, she provides the correct time.
I am sorry to hear that your Alexa is responding with the start time of events being one hour early. Have you checked the time zone of the calendar itself to make sure that it is the same as the Alexa?
Hope this helps!

Hello Forum people, My name is Zach and I am a Moderator for Amazon. I enjoy Film Making, Graphic Design and Web Design in my free time (Different than Kindle Freetime of course). I am also an avid adventurer, looking forward to my next outing!
Thanks for the speedy reply. What’s strange is that on some occasions Alexa will respond with the correct start time for a calendar event (and the card will reflect this), on other occasions Alexa will read a start time for the same event one hour earlier (with the card also one hour earlier.) I’ve double checked that the Alexa app is set for London time zone, as are iPhone and iPad, and iCloud.com.
I’ve just double checked again - everything is set to British Summer Time. I’ve just asked Alexa to read my next 4 calendar events. First attempt, all events were 1 hour earlier. Next attempt all events were correct. Third attempt, all events were 1 hour early again! So this error isn’t consistent. As noted earlier, Alexa always provides the correct current time when asked.
