Microsoft has started approaching Alexa developers by email so that they can get them start working on the various products of Cortana Skills Kit.The emails are promoting that Microsoft Cortana is one of the huge platforms for the audience and has a lot of potential for the growth since it is already working on the windows 10 devices, Xbox one video game console, Android and iOS devices, and it is also working on windows 10 Mobile smartphones.
“Cortana has 145 million monthly active users across Windows, Android, iOS and Xbox,” In the email they have mentioned to Alexa developers that “We’ve made it easy to reuse the code, language models and cards you’ve created for your Alexa skill — and your Cortana skill will work across platforms and devices.” Microsoft is also making similar approaches to get Android and iOS app developers for working on windows 10 in future.
It’s not made clear that how users will be utilizing Cortana.It can be used only by Xbox users.The important question is the usage frequency and scope.Yet over 145 million monthly active users are likely to represent the user base all over the voice assistants who are active currently. Google Assistant is now accessible to more than 100 million Android users in the last month, but there is a huge difference between monthly use and accessing.Google has more capabilities that can overtake Microsoft. That doesn’t leave behind Cortana's fact that it is a key player which is having a much larger base than Amazon can claim.
Cortana is also famously known as the digital assistant and it is the competitor for Apple’s Siri, Google’s Google assistant, and Amazon’s Alexa. Cortona has a lot of advantages since it is widely used in Windows 10PCS and the Xbox One.
