Microsoft in an email has claimed that it has 145 million monthly active users across Windows, Android, iOS and Xbox. The company claims that the number of monthly users of its Digital Assistant are more compared to that of Amazon’s Echo.

With the number of Monthly active users that the company has for its Digital Assistant, it is trying to get more developers to port their Amazon Alexa skills to Cortana Skills kit which promises to have a greater reach and engagement.

Unlike Echo which has to be purchased by users, Cortana is bundled with the Windows PC’s which is why Microsoft is trying to make it easy for developers to port Alexa Skills to Cortana by using the same methods and syntax.
