When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Just tried it now on my laptop. Yes, you can voice play specific song.

I also said - Hey Cortana shuffle all music and it shuffled play all my music on Groove - the windows music player.

Cortana is the way for voice play on PC music. You can also say Hey Cortana play music.

Just tried it. They need to be installed. So Alexa beat them on this one. I don't have tunein installed and Echo plays it. Microsoft should also have tunein in their cloud/server too.

Oh, also just found out, Cortana can be accessed through Alexa. This is new coz I always say Alexa, ok google and well the response is shady as always. Google and amazon is still at war obviously.

But when I said Alexa, hey Cortana I had a new reply in which Cortana will be integrated with echo soon.

So this is good news for people who want to use Alexa to voice play their local music files on their PC.

Personally, I will just use Cortana but most people here are obviously obsessed with Alexa, soooo.

Okay, Microsoft and Amazon really are partnering. I just said hey Cortana, Alexa and it has the same answer as Alexa in which you can control your echo device using Cortana. Which honestly I don't get it. LOL. I mean why go through this when you can access the AI directly on the device that it's built in? Oh well.

When I said  hey Cortana, ok google it said - google is ok but this is Cortana. LOL.

I had read where Amazon and Microsoft were in talks to integrate both AI but I figured that had hit a wall.
It is good to know it is still in the works. ;)
