After partnering with Amazon, Microsoft is now selling Amazon’s Echo devices in its retail stores. Besides that, the devices come with the integration of two Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered assistants Alexa with Cortana.
Microsoft’s Cortona integration with Alexa seems to be an interesting move from the companies. Above all, it will revive the AI market as a Google Assistant alternative from both the companies. The four years old Cortona still serves all of your requests on all of the Windows 10 devices out there.
The partnership between two companies is becoming stronger. Besides that, we’ve seen the companies making such integration at the “Build 2018” developers’ conference in May this year.
Megan Saunders, Microsoft Cortana General Manager, and Tom Taylor, Amazon Alexa Senior Vice President, showcased how Alexa and Cortana would work together in the near future.
“For all of you developers out there building skills, Cortana and Alexa will enable access to more people across more devices. And we can’t wait to see what you build,” said Saunders.
To give you a brief, the Alexa will handle your personal request. On the flip side, Cortona will help your business needs. To operate you need to start with the command “Alexa, open Cortana.”
