Skype running on Alexa devices is a big breakthrough to evryone. Though we had to enjoy lots of Alexa-connected hardware, there’s one more big development coming for Amazon’s technology: integration with Skype.
Microsoft and Amazon tech companies said that voice and video calls via the service will come to Alexa devices ‘including Microsoft’s Xbox One’ with calls that you can start and control just by voice.
Last year the two companies announced their intentions to make Alexa and Cortana work together. Right now it’s taken a while to arrive…so most people feel, but now it’s here.
Amazon’s push to make people buy more things via its assistant could provide a boost to Microsoft’s aspirations of product integration in a way that didn’t happen after the launch of the Xbox One and Kinect, which already featured voice control for Skype before Cortana and Alexa were on the scene.
We patiently wait for the arrival of Skype on Alexa
