Remember how Microsoft love to throw users? Skype was pre-installed on many smart tvs an then stopped to work. Don't wait they will do other way this time. Remember - Microsoft means - don't use!

About those Amazon speakers... in the end only Alexa will stay in that partnership, probably Cortana will fade away and get axed.
