Google, Amazon, Microsoft have their own artificial intelligence-based smart digital assistants that in fierce competition with one another.

Though the implementation isn't flawless, support for Alexa as the default Android assistant will be a boon for many users. That's a small price to pay for the integration of both digital assistants you work and play with almost every day, right?

You can now use Amazon 's Alexa instead of Google Assistant by default on your Android phone.

The process of making Alexa your default voice assistant on Android varies from device to device, but the way to start is by downloading the Alexa app from the Google Play Store. Firstly, if you are using Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the squeeze gesture to activate the Assistant won't work.

Facebook blames 'bug' for unusual hate speech prompt
Each post also gives the option to dismiss the question with a tiny "x" box to the right of the answers. Nowhere in the hate speech button portal was there an option to find the definition of hate speech.

Microsoft and Amazon had announced to integrate their virtual assistants a year ago. This will be followed by a permission request screen - specifying that Alexa will hear your requests, control smart home devices, and get location-relevant results. Taking the strengths of both assistants, interacting with each other and making them available on every device possible. Some Huawei devices do come with Alexa pre-installed, but they're more of an exception than the rule. The update also allowed consumers to enter the virtual world with the Windows Mixed Reality feature by using their Windows-powered VR headsets. But one thing seems clear: if Alexa is built into Cortana, more people will search it out.

HOW IT WORKS For Alexa-enabled device owners, the Amazon Alexa App is the companion to your Alexa-enabled devices that lets you set-up devices and easily manage your alarms, music, shopping lists, and more - wherever you are.

Since, Google's Assistant is baked by the CPU's firmware, you have to long press on the home button in order to launch the Amazon Alexa and you can now change its behaviour.
