Bot Cortana in Skype will soon be replaced by Alexe
In 2017, the intelligent assistant Cortana debuted in the Skype application on Android and iOS, which later appeared also in the PC application. On April 30, 2019, bot Cortana in the Skype application will be turned off, and Alex will take his place from Amazon.
Skype users who have used Cortana can receive notifications of the upcoming service end. The user Florian Beaubois informed via Twitter.
He also provided screenshots showing the process of linking Skype and Amazon accounts. To encourage users, Microsoft has prepared a special offer: anyone who decides to integrate with Alexa, will get 200 free minutes to use in the popular communicator.
However, the end of Cortana’s bot has no effect on the other Skype bots. Existing programs will continue to work as before. If you are interested in what bots can do on Skype, check it out yourself on this page.
