Microsoft takes aim at Amazon’s Echo with Windows 10 HomeHub feature - The Verge

Check Microsoft's Home Hub ambitions aim to crush Google Home and Amazon Echo [exclusive] (Windows Central) for a preview of a parallel universe in which Windows 10 PCs are at the center of the home computing picture

"Microsoft is planning to enable Cortana to be the center of its HomeHub initiative, and the integration will allow the assistant to provide HomeHub-like features across iOS and Android. This will include extending the assistant to control smart devices and manage them from the Windows 10 HomeHub feature. Microsoft’s HomeHub plans are currently in the planning phases, so many features will likely change and the interface itself could be entirely cut out of future Windows 10 updates. Microsoft has largely been left out of the emergence of the smart home, despite having Cortana running on the Xbox One. The HomeHub is Microsoft’s bet to try and control the ecosystem before Amazon, Google, or even Apple provide the best framework to manage devices in your home."
