San Francisco: Following its partnership with Amazon to integrate their two Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered assistants Alexa with Cortana, Microsoft has now started selling Amazon’s Echo devices in its retail stores. Amazon’s Echo Dot and Echo devices are available online and in Microsoft Stores in the US, The Verge reported on Saturday. Microsoft introduced Cortana on Windows Phone four years ago. In Windows 10, it became the core search functionality. The software maker now appears to be pushing it towards more business-focused areas like chat bots rather than its original consumer-focused launch, the report added. Microsoft has been increasingly focusing on its Amazon partnership and Alexa integration, it added. (IANS)
