The digital assistant space is still emerging. Siri for iOS and Google Now have become important to many in their daily lives. Now, Microsoft has an assistant of their own that they may be launching on Windows Phone 8.1.
In the last week or so, details have emerged describing ‘Cortana’, Microsoft’s upcoming digital assistant that aims to offer the kind of voice interaction and interrogation features found in Apple’s Siri, with the intelligent context-aware capabilities of Google Now. It’s believed that Microsoft eventually intends to integrate the service into all of its major products, including the Windows OS family and the new Xbox One.
