Amazon Alexa Gets a Windows 10 App

Amazon and Microsoft have been getting pretty chummy in the digital assistant space for some time now and Alexa has an official Windows 10 App.

I have been using Alexa through Cortana on my Windows 10 machine at the office for a while now and have generally liked the experience but having a Native Windows 10 App makes it that much better.

Installing the Alexa Windows 10 App is as simple as downloading it from the Microsoft Store and signing in with your Amazon Credentials. Upon launching the Alexa Windows 10 App you are asked if you want the Alexa App to launch at startup which I do so I quickly said yes to that.

While I am overall happy with what the Windows 10 Alexa App brings I would love to see the full Alexa app like we have on iOS and Android come to Windows and would love for a way to replace Cortana with Alexa completely.

If you are in the Alexa ecosystem give the Alexa Windows 10 App a shot and let me know what you think.
