Cortana Is Coming Soon!

Monday, June 29th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana, named after the artificial intelligence in the video game Halo, is coming to a device near you soon.

“She’s” already available on Windows Phones and is part of Windows 10, which will be released on July 29.

But she’s not just on her way to Windows.  A beta app for Android users that allows Windows 10 users to access many of Cortana’s features on their phone is on the way as well and you should be able to download it from the Google Play Store in July. She’ll work as a companion to your Windows 10 device.


She’s also ready to make an appearance on the Xbox One in the U.S. and UK this fall. On the Xbox one, you’ll be able to use voice commands and Cortana will help you find games, new players to compete against and even look up your friends. She’ll also be able to accomplish common tasks.  If you want to share a clip of a game, you can use Cortana to find the right section of video and to share it to your friends, all without stopping your game.


She’ll also look up information for you about things like release dates and help you earn achievements.

You’ll be able to set up a notebook that can be accessed across all of your devices to keep track of appointments or reminders. Set up a reminder on your phone and you’ll also get an onscreen notification while watching a movie on you Xbox when it’s time to take care of that task.

As Microsoft keeps saying, One Windows. Their goal is to be a service that you access from all of your devices whether it be your PC, phone, tablet or gaming system.

A version of Cortana for the iPhone is also expected fairly soon.

    Please use apostrophes! Words needing them are hard to read otherwise. And it’s not as if using them is hard!!
