How to Set Alexa As the Default Assistant on Android

Love Sport Radio launches 10 Fan Podcasts

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.

Doctor says Trump dictated letter about 'astonishingly excellent' health
The White House didn't respond to a request for comment about Bornstein's claim about the letter . Bornstein told the network: "They must have been here for 25 minutes or 30 minutes".

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?
