In today's Build Show, Microsoft finally showed what it would look like if Cortana and Alexa sounded like they were working together.
Microsoft and Amazon have been teasing the team since last August when they announced their agreement to have their voice assistants working by the end of l & # 39; year. That did not happen, but it's nice to see that Microsoft has not completely forgotten its promise, especially since there have been no bets. to date major until now.
To summon the voice assistant on his non-native device, you must ask the resident voice to open it for you. To demonstrate, Megan Saunders, CEO of Cortana, asked Amazon Echo "Alexa, Cortana Open" – how much, Cortana has brought her services.
She then launched the demo to Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President of Alexa. Taylor asked Cortana to open Alexa on her computer Windows and used it to order an Uber .
For now, the integration is still in "very limited beta", so we may not see the official team anytime soon – at least, neither Saunders nor Taylor n & # 39, hinted when she would be available. If you want to be notified when the match will be posted, you can check this link .
