You: 'Alexa, open Cortana.' Alexa: 'Who?'

"Cortana users will be able to have Alexa shop on Amazon.com and manage their Amazon orders and access many of Alexa's third-party skills by asking Cortana to open Alexa, just as Alexa users will have access to Cortana's world knowledge and helpful productivity features such as calendar management, day at a glance and location-based reminders simply by asking Alexa to open Cortana", said Microsoft spokesperson. You can now access both Alexa and Cortana on each of them. The collaboration between the two assistants was announced previous year and was originally due to become available by the end of 2017. The companies gave a preview of the functionality at Microsoft's 2018 Build event, showcasing how Alexa and Cortana can work together.

This feedback will hopefully result in the inclusion of some now missing features, like music streaming and alarm clocks, as both parties intend to keep adding more over time.

One would hope that this integration will become smoother over time: it would be much simpler if an Echo let you speak directly to Cortana and a Windows PC directly to Alexa without having to switch-after all, each command is prepended with the assistant's name. Microsoft says the integration will start rolling out to customers Wednesday and will reach all US customers within days. Microsoft says the companies will launch "additional skills and features" in the future.

It only took a year, but Cortana is finally coming to Alexa speakers, and vice versa.

The Verge reports that Microsoft and Amazon have released a wider public preview of its previously teased deeper integration between the Alexa and Cortana digital assistants - available for everyone in the United States right now.

"Hopefully, they'll be inspired by it", Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told the Times a year ago when asked about Apple and Google. "Engineers will use feedback from the public preview to deepen the collaboration between Cortana and Alexa".

What Alexa looks like through Cortana on Windows 10. But I just don't see most people thinking about relying on different digital assistants for different types of tasks.
