Microsoft has added natural language search to Window s 8.1 search. That means if you want to ask Windows something like, “How do I uninstall an app?,” you can just type that question in and it will come up with the appropriate setting icon for you to tap or click to complete that action.
Or you could type “my screen is too bright” and you’ll see settings to adjust the brightness. Or perhaps you’d like to know how to bake a cobbler. Type that in and Bing will show you websites with baking instructions.
Some are taking this as a sign that Microsoft’s virtual assistant Cortana will be available for all Windows 8.1 devices and not just Windows phones in the near future.
