Tech giant Microsoft would allow Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa to activate on the lock screen in the next update to Windows 10.

Microsoft’s new update follows changes to Cortana in Windows 10, as it moves to a separate app in the Microsoft Store and away from the built-in search experience in the operating system, The Verge reported on Monday.

By putting Alexa on the lock screen, a Windows 10 PC would be an Alexa smart speaker even when the PC is in sleep mode.

The tech giant plans to implement these changes to Alexa in the code name “19H2” update which is expected to arrive in September.
