Amazon Alexa is ready for Star Wars Day, just ask her

Amazon Alexa is ready for Star Wars Day, just ask her

After announcing the Alexa and Cortana integration past year, Microsoft's Cortana will finally include access to Amazon's digital assistant and at the Microsoft Build 2018, the software maker went on with demonstrated Alexa running on Cortana and vice versa. They will then be able to long press the home button on their Android device to call up Alexa, without having to open the app. Microsoft's Cortana also supports this functionality.

"Alexa, open Cortana", she said, and summoned Microsoft's assistant to open her calendar about a meeting with Taylor. In addition to LOVE SPORT's core listener base in the United Kingdom, the shows will also be available to Alexa and Google Assistant users in Australia, Canada, India and the U.S.

But the company also is embedding Cortana in more of its own apps and services, including its Teams workplace chat product; Outlook; and Windows (via the shell) to make it available to users where they are and in the context where they're working.

"So we've been working with our friends across the lake at Amazon to really bring Alexa and Cortana together to benefit every developer and user".

Veterans Mark Williams and John Higgins contesting World Championship final
A nervy final frame would also go Williams, who will head into the last day with a 10-7 lead in the best of 35 frame final. During a lull in proceedings, Williams took the opportunity to take in his surroundings, spotting something he liked.

Taylor used Alexa to order an Uber using the third-party Uber skill and told her to turn off the lights. "We both have experience with rings, although hers is more of a Halo". In short, it would seem that Alexa is going to handle "personal" stuff while Cortana's going to handle all the "business". The Cortana and Alexa integration is still early stages.

Microsoft unveiled the "Your Phone" app for Windows 10 which is created to mirror a phone straight to a desktop PC while it will also let Windows 10 users access texts, notifications, photos.

Presumably, there are more easter eggs hidden in Assistant, so if you find any more yourself, let us know in the comments!

Microsoft said that the digital assistant integration is now only available in a limited beta but those interested can sign up here to receive an alert when it goes live.
