What do you think of Amazon's partnership with Microsoft to join Alexa and Cortana? I think it has huge expansion opportunities and benefits. http://alphastreet.com/bbc131f1

Alexa Vs Google

by gabesavoyard In reply to Alexa and Cortana

I think Amazon is taking a very smart strategy by pouring all resources into owning the preeminent voice assistant / AI platform. This is definitely the next great consumer tech space, and there are really only two giants who are going to battle it out (http://www.bestaiassistant.com/alexa/alexa-google-assistant-vs-better/) so it's best that Microsoft is smart enough to team up with one.

ai battle

by smarthome001 In reply to Alexa and Cortana

I think it's a great move. Significantly helps them compete the Google Home and Apple Homekit which are going to be enormous rivals.

There's an infographic here which compares them: http://intelligenthomeblog.com/home-automation/

Major benefits both ways

by contact1517956942 In reply to Alexa and Cortana

Hi, this will have major benefits both ways.

It could extend Alexa's reach to at least 29% of the worlds computers (current market share of Windows 10, https://netmarketshare.com/operating-system-market-share.aspx)

I could also finally connect Microsoft to the fast growing smart home market, where it is currently losing out (e.g. https://www.wirefree.com.au). Alexa of course have enjoyed a head start in this race, and while Google and Apple are trying to catch up there hasn't been much to see out of Redmond.
