  • Earlier in the year, Amazon teamed up with some of the biggest PC makers to brings Alexa to Windows 10. The company started selling devices that came pre-installed with Alexa, and it’s now bringing the same experience to all Windows 10 devices — through the Microsoft Store. If you have a Windows 10 device running the most recent update, you will be able to install Alexa just like any other regular app on your device. Once you open it up and log in with your Amazon account, you can use Alexa just like a regular personal assistant. All the Alexa-related feature are available through the app just like other Alexa devices, and even supports the Alexa wake word on compatible devices. Although the app doesn’t support things like Spotify right now, you can still listen to music via Amazon Music. Thurrott
