How to Set Alexa As the Default Assistant on Android

How to Set Alexa As the Default Assistant on Android

Those who have Android devices but prefer to rely on Amazon Alexa for questions and commands are in luck.

If you want to replace the Google Assistant with Alexa on your Android smartphone, download the newest version of the Alexa app from the Play Store.

MICROSOFT HAS shown off its Cortana-Alexa integration for the first time, and in the cold light of day, it's a little bit cringy.

We also tried to do the same on our Samsung Galaxy S9 and the feature worked perfectly fine.

During the demonstration, the leaders revealed that a user wanted to work with Cortana on Alexa, they would be able to summon the Microsoft digital assistant on Amazon's device. Theoretically, this means that any Android phone running 7.0 Nougat and up will now allow you to choose between Cortana, Alexa and Google Assistant as default. You'll still have to use "Hey Google" or "OK Google" as a wake command, which will still bring up the Google Assistant.

Taking on Apple Siri and Google Assistant, Microsoft and Amazon have showcased the first-ever coming together of Cortana and Alexa - their two Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered assistants. You typically aren't locked into using specific apps or services. Amazon Alexa was asked what it thinks about Cortana to which it replies, "I like Cortana". Now you'll be able to hold the home button to pull up Alexa. These two voice-activated smart assistant overlord software and cloud intelligence systems will work together on devices of all sorts.

In a world of too much rudeness, thank-you, Ms. Alexa.

Not to be outdone, Google is also discounting its smart home devices, when purchased individually or combined with other Google devices. You will now be able to press the home button on your Android device long to call up Alexa, without having to open the app manually.
