Alexa on Windows 10

The Alexa app can now be activated on Windows 10 PCs solely by voice control. The app used to have to be activated manually before voice control could be used, but it can now be launched with voice control even if it is minimized or running in the background.

The new update also covers the Pandora music playback app. It is still possible to set Alexa to “push to talk”, and the settings can be used to toggle between the two modes.

Amazon is increasingly collaborating with Microsoft, with a new Alexa app for Xbox One having been launched recently, and an integration having taken place between the two companies’ voice assistants, so that Alexa can now be activated from within Cortana and vice versa.

Microsoft has stated that it views Cortana as complementary to alternative voice systems, not directly competing with them.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to
    resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Many thanks! 34pIoq5 cheap flights
