Amazon and Microsoft to Make Alexa and Cortana Digital Assistants Talk to Each OtherAugust 31, 2017
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says in the announcement, "Ensuring Cortana is available for our customers everywhere and across any device is a key priority for us. Bringing Cortana's knowledge, Office 365 integration, commitments, and reminders to Alexa is a great step toward that goal."
The companies say that once the programmers have the digital assistant communicating, Alexa users will be able to access Cortana features like booking a meeting or accessing work calendars on Windows 10. Cortana users will be able to ask Alexa to control their smart home devices, shop on Amazon.com and more.
