MobileSyrup has reached out to Microsoft to find out how the partnership will work in Canada given that Alexa isn't available here through an Echo device just yet. It's likely both Bezos and Nadella had Apple and Google at the top of their minds when they agreed to the partnership.
So really this alliance is mostly a commentary on the slender individual utility now offered by each/any of these heavily hyped voice assistant technologies. The multi-room feature as Amazon is calling it, will let you connect more than one Echo speaker together and let you synchronize your music streaming so that it plays along on both speakers, or all speakers if you have more than two. That will make for a whole lot of T.A.L.K.I.N.G. between these two with over 20,000 Alexa Skills that are now available and Windows 10 being on more than 500 million devices. The Amazon and Microsoft are together ensuring the digital assistants work in collaboration with voice-driven commands.
Microsoft has been working with Amazon for a year now, with Jeff Bezos advancing the idea to Satya Nadella in May 2016, and plan to make it more natural in the future, with requests automatically being routed to the AI which can best answer it.

Digital assistants are precursors to true artificial intelligence (AI), or machines that can react like humans through learning, reasoning, and self-correction.
That means Cortana will be accessible from every Alexa device and Alexa will be available to every Windows 10 user through Cortana on their own devices.
Even so, it still seems odd that these two will partner up.
There are two other major players in the world of AI helpers, Google's Assistant and Apple's Siri. Will they join the party? "On your Alexa device, you can say, 'Alexa, open Cortana, ' and ask when your first meeting is", claimed Microsoft.
