This week at Build 2018, Microsoft demonstrated how the pairing with work in the real world, and it isn't as complex as you might expect when combining two competing platforms.
But be warned: Swapping out Google Assistant for Alexa won't be that useful of an experience. Before this, users could only replace the default voice assistant with Microsoft's Cortana. In short, it would seem that Alexa is going to handle "personal" stuff while Cortana's going to handle all the "business". However, users on the Reddit thread have reported that except the issue with invoking Alexa, their smartphones were working just fine with the updated digital assistant. They do vary in capabilities, and that makes it a good reason why you should try them all.
Download the Alexaapp then head to your settings. After doing so, press the install button and get the application installed. Expounding into an Echo, Saunders appended an item into her shopping list through Alexa, and then asked Alexa to open Cortana.
Next, you'll need to change the Assist App being used on your Android smartphone. Then go to your phone settings and choose the apps & notifications from the menu. There, tap on Assist App. But one thing seems clear: if Alexa is built into Cortana, more people will search it out.
Android users, will you switch out your voice assistant for Alexa? If you've chosen Cortana, you can use the same and complete the tasks. For example, Alexa customers would be able to access Cortana's productivity features, like booking meetings, accessing work calendars, or reading work emails.
