“Cortana” Voice Assistant Shown Off In Windows 8.1 Screenshots
With the release of Windows Phone 8.1 not too far away, we have a lot to look forward in the biggest Window Phone 8 update yet. Leaks and rumors have revealed that we can expect a true notification center, quick settings menu and more. One of the most anticipated however, is the new voice assistant known as Cortana.
Some new leaked screenshots from the new update shows off what Cortana looks like and some of the settings available. According to the screenshots, Cortana will be represented by a pair of spinning blue circles when it is performing searches or actions. Reportedly Cortana will also be contextually aware similar to Google Now. This will come with the help of Bing and Foursquare. We don’t know if Cortana will be the official name upon release, but we will find out soon when Microsoft hosts their BUILD developer conference soon.
