Last August, Microsoft and Amazon made an interesting announcement. Those using Microsoft's Cortana virtual personal assistant will be able to access Amazon's Alexa assistant and vice versa. While the collaboration was expected to start late last year, apparently both firms needed more time to sync their assistants. Today, the sharing begins.

Microsoft's Cortana and Amazon's Alexa digital assistants can now talk to each other. The collaboration between the two assistants was announced last year and was originally due to become available by the end of 2017.
