Microsoft is leaving for Windows to compete for Cortan, and we have just arrived in August when he announced an agreement with Amazon . It would also work with Alexa, first of all on the Amazon Echo boxes for shopping.
It took time, but Alexa in Windows has become a reality. Acer today announced that this quarter integrates Alex into several selected laptops and All-in-One computers. Aspire 5, Aspire 7, Spin 3, Spin 5, Switch 7 Black Edition, Swift 3, Swift 5, Swift 7, Aspire Z24, Aspire S24 and Aspire S24
Acer is not the only one, Alex is coming to Windows computer and other manufacturers. Asus offers support for notebooks from ZenBook and VivoBook, HP at the Pavilion Wave. Support is based on sound quality, high-quality microphones, and Intel Smart Sound technology. Conversely, the switch of Switches 7 and Spin 5 guarantees that Acer communicates with Alexa at a distance of 2.74 m from the microphone
Microsoft and Amazon can also be unveiled as a strategic partnership – voice assistants will appear on the Web (19459017)
While Siri is only in Apple's facilities but has a strong position and Google Assistant (as an assistant with the least original name) is a threat to them. Bixby is only a marginal platform. What Cortana and Alexa have in common, and they are different from Google, and Siri is the absence of an eagle.
Just one thing you can imagine is that the user will select which one from your computer the voice assistant just uses it. It may be that Apple's computerized computer makers for her better integration with smart homeownership and Microsoft will regret this step. And or not, and with Cortany's chance to come in, especially when it gets something else. Now Bing is set as the main search engine for Alexa. If Microsoft can not break through with Cortana in Windows does not have the power to break it anywhere else
