Beijing January 3 morning news, last August, Microsoft had announced cooperation with Amazon, want two digital assistants Cortana and Alexa integration. When the news was announced, the two companies said they would integrate by the end of 2017.
2017 is over, 2018 is past days, but "consolidation" has not come yet. Although the deadline has not been greatly affected, it is still a rather embarrassing thing for the company to make promises before the public and eventually to default.
Media contact Amazon and Microsoft, the two companies did not explain the reasons for the delay, only that in the near future will be integrated. Microsoft spokesman said: "More news will be released soon. "The response from Amazon is basically similar:" We are moving forward and we expect to integrate soon. & rdquo;
The integration of the two big digital assistants is still something of a great deal, with Windows 10 being the desktop leader and Amazon having entered the American home kitchen while Cortana is still standing outside. If the two services docking, users at home can easily use a digital assistant, there is no need to use two.
