Here's how to make Alexa the default assistant on an Android phone

Alexa and Cortana are learning to work together, announced Tom Taylor, Amazon's SVP of Alexa, and Megan Saunders, Microsoft's GM of Cortana today, appearing onstage together here in Seattle at the Microsoft Build conference. "By bringing Cortana to Alexa and Alexa to Cortana, we are adding more value and choice for consumers and developers alike", said a Microsoft spokesperson.

Using Cortana on the Echo, Saunders was able to check her schedule and even send an email to a colleague.

The reaction, as shown above, obviously received applause from the crowd who clearly understand the Halo reference stated within Alexa's reply.

Still, Bayern could count themselves unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty and Real left-back Marcelo admitted as much afterwards.

The experience is like two digital assistants inhabiting in a single device.

In this case, Alexa was used to control smart home devices, while Cortana answered queries about the calendar. First, the firm showed off accessing Cortana through an Amazon Echo. Microsoft showcased early stages of this development on stage at Build 2018.

The goal of the partnership is to capitalize on each AI assistant's strengths: Alexa has considerable third-party support and a large install base and Cortana has integration with PC-centric features like Microsoft's own Office 365 suite. That's a small price to pay for the integration of both digital assistants you work and play with almost every day, right?
