But for the last three years, the first comment that the naysayers have made is that Microsoft and Apple do not support WebRTC.
Microsoft has found a magic lamp, as it now has a new Genee. That is to say, it's acquired the virtual assistant (VA) startup Genee. With this acquisition, Microsoft will be able to enhance its own VA programs by integrating the Genee software.
