Move over, Amazon Echo & Google Home: Here comes Microsoft Cortana
Cortana will be baked into a new smart speaker from Harman Kardon to be released next year, potentially the first of many Cortana-powered devices.
Unlike Amazon and Google, Microsoft isn’t making a Cortana device itself. Rather, today it announced a way for anyone to integrate its Cortana agent into devices, through the Cortana Devices SDK.
That’s apparently going to be used by Harman Kardon to make a speaker with Cortana smarts to be released next year.
