Alexa and Cortana Now Working Together On Windows 10 PC and Echo Speakers


This means that Windows 10 users will Now be able to summon Amazon’s Alexa, while Echo speaker users will also now be able to summon Microsoft’s Cortana digital voice assistant. This came after Microsoft and Amazon announced a public preview of a Cortana-Alexa collaboration made available starting today.

The collaboration between Microsoft and Amazon was announced last year, but at the time, no information was given on when the Cortana-Alexa integration would be available to the public. Starting today, users will be able to access Alexa on Windows 10 devices by simply saying, “Cortana, open Alexa.” On Amazon’s Echo speakers, users will be able to access Microsoft’s assistant by saying, “Alexa, open Cortana.”

Microsoft’s Jennifer Langston said on the company’s AI Blog “These early users will be asked to engage with the new features and offer input: what they like, what they don’t like, what features they use the most. The experience will get better and more precise as more people use it, through customer input and additional data to improve underlying algorithms,”

“Some features such as streaming music and setting alarms are not yet available, but additional skills and devices will be integrated over time. Engineers will use feedback from the public preview to deepen the collaboration between Cortana and Alexa.” She expanded

It’s possible that this collaboration with Amazon is part of Microsoft’s strategy to help broaden Cortana’s availability seeing that Microsoft is falling behind Apple and Google, with Amazon still leading in the smart speaker race. So far, Microsoft has only made Cortana available on Windows 10 PCs, the Invoke smart speaker, and smart thermostat GLAS.
