How To Replace Google Assistant With Alexa Or Cortana On Android?

Love Sport Radio launches 10 Fan Podcasts

Microsoft's Cortana and Amazon's Alexa are finally talking, fulfilling a groundbreaking promise made past year to bring the rival digital assistants together.

Now Playing: Watch this: Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana can talk to each.

But there were some concerns those commands would be awkward, and that integrations like this could be unnecessary too.

Additionally, you won't be able to use the "Alexa" keyword phrase to activate the assistant.

To the companies, given their respective focuses, it might make sense to rely on Cortana for a work calendar, and Alexa for managing shopping list. The two tech leaders shared that customers would be able to use the two digital assistants in tangent in the future. "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. Taylor asked Alexa what she thought of Cortana, and she jokingly replied, "I like Cortana".

After the Alexa-to-Cortana demo, Taylor showed off the reverse situation - calling up Alexa from Cortana. Alexa responded in her own voice: "hi there, this is Alexa".

GB Group plc (LON:GBG) Weekly Ratings on May 6, 2018
SVS hit GBX 967.5 during the last trading session after GBX 2.5 change.Savills plc is after having 0.00% since May 6, 2017. Therefore 73% are positive. 107.71 million shares or 1.45% less from 109.29 million shares in 2017Q3 were reported.

Likewise, users are able to invoke Alexa on Windows PC through Cortana just by saying "Hey Cortana, open Alexa". Yes, this notion of invoking a separate service is the current norm with third-party skills, but the standard for integration should be higher when the two companies responsible for the underlying platforms are involved. Oh, hardy-har-har.

Alexa's functionality on the phone is limited for now.

The Cortana-Alexa communication is now in a limited beta, but interested users can visit this website to receive notifications and updates about the project's development.

If you want to stop using Bixby or Google Assistant, in favor of Alexa, we have a guide for you.
