Cortana and Alexa can use each other’s skills




thanks to integration
The digital assistants Microsoft Cortana and Amazon Alexa can use each other’s skills since Wednesday, because both companies have integrated the assistants. For example, users of a Windows PC can call Alexa by typing or calling open Alexa.

Conversely, users of an Echo speaker or other device can call Alexa Cortana by saying “open Cortana,” Microsoft reports . Then users must log in with a Microsoft account for Cortana or an Amazon account for Alexa. Then they can use the skills of the other assistant.

It is a test version of the integration and Microsoft and Amazon want the assistants to cooperate more closely in the future, for example by transferring information from one to the other.

Microsoft and Amazon announced the collaboration almost a year ago. Both assistants can be used in the Benelux, but not in Dutch. The assistants of competitors Apple and Google are available in Dutch.
