Microsoft and Amazon are partnering to enable their respective personal digital assistants to work together.

In a deal announced on August 30, the pair committed to getting Microsoft’s Cortana and Amazon’s Alexa assistants to communicate with each other later this year.

Users will be able to say to their Echo devices, “Alexa, open Cortana,” or to their Windows 10 devices, “Cortana, open Alexa.” According to Microsoft’s blog post, users will be able to access Alexa via Cortana on Windows 10 PCs, followed by Android and iOS “in the future.”
