Global giants Amazon and Microsoft, who had announced a partnership in August 2017 to integrate Alexa and Cortana digital assistants, are yet to roll out their smart assistant partnership. According to The Verge, the deal made available Amazon and Microsoft's digital assistants on each other's platforms; allowing users to access Microsoft's Cortana assistant on Amazon Echo, or Alexa on any Windows 10 PC. While Microsoft and Amazon had formed a close partnership, founder and chief executive officer, Amazon, Jeff Bezos had also welcomed Apple and Google to offer similar integration, saying that he would support it. Chief executive officer, Microsoft, Satya Nadella had also appeared to welcome the idea of collaboration with Apple and Google. "Hopefully, they'll be inspired by it," he had said in an interview to The New York Times.
