Microsoft's Cortana assistant is reportedly becoming more of an assistance aide than a standalone service, being moved from Microsoft's AI + Research department to its Experiences & Devices Team and working with Amazon to pair it with the latter company's Alexa technology. You can also make High-fidelity Skype video calls form the Echo Show and Echo Sport to Skype on Computers, Tablets or mobiles.

"With Skype and Alexa, you can now connect with your friends and family around the world completely hands-free". Some of these are Prime-exclusive devices, meaning that they come pre-loaded with some additional Amazon apps, but that's a small trade off for some of these discount amounts. Every Alexa-enabled device will now be able to make calls with a simple voice command, such as "Alexa, Skype Mum". Now sign in using the same Microsoft account that you use for Skype.

To set up Skype calling, fire up the Alexa app on your phone, go to Settings, then Communication, then Skype.

We have rounded up some of the best Black Friday electronics deals below, and we'll add to the list as more retailers roll out new promotions on the epic Thanksgiving-Black Friday weekend.

So who can you call for free with Skype? This offer will be valid for two months giving customers 200 minutes worth of calling credit to make SkypeOut calls. This means 100 minutes of worldwide calling per month for two months.
