Alexa, the artificial intelligence (AI) powered voice-based virtual assistant that was initially exclusive to the Amazon Echo family before being released on other devices including Android and iOS smartphones, is now getting deeper into Android. This will be followed by a consent petition display screen - defining that Alexa will hear your own orders, hands smart household devices, and receive location-relevant results. The idea is that Alexa is mostly used at home, and Cortana is mostly used at work, so people should be able to use both from the same device for different tasks.
"The department continues to be a technological evangelist, innovator and pioneer, utilizing various communications and marketing tools, including a comprehensive email service, mobile app and now Amazon Alexa, to connect and engage with our customers", Belton said.
However, if you want to use Cortana, Firefox Search, and Sound Hound as your default voice assistant, you can do the same by following the above-mentioned procedure. "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. This was important to her as all her personal information was known only to Cortana as she uses a Microsoft account for all her work. After the app is installed, you will need to log into your Amazon account to get everything working.
Likewise, users are able to invoke Alexa on Windows PC through Cortana just by saying "Hey Cortana, open Alexa". At home the user might say "Alexa, open Cortana" to check on a work meeting or to call up the name of a co-worker. Then go to your phonesettings and choose the apps & notifications from the menu.
We can assume that functionality will continue to expand, but for the time being, you're probably better off sticking with one of the other options. Cortana-Alexa integration would allowAmazon Alexa users to access Cortana and Cortana users to access Alexa.
