Watch Microsoft’s Cortana In Action
Cortana is known for being the holographic AI in the Halo franchise which 343 Industries sexualised for Halo 4. Get ready for her to become so much more and not in a Her sort of way. Actually, maybe in that sort of way. People are weird.
It’s been heavily rumoured that Microsoft has an answer to Siri, Apple’s personal digital assistant. The service hasn’t even been announced yet but UnleashThePhones has posted an extended video showing off what appears to be Cortana, the Microsoft version of Siri.

Halo fans will love that name.
The Cortana service for Windows Phone will reportedly be able to learn and adapt, allowing it to address you by your name or a nickname. You’ll also reportedly be able to ask Cortana to perform tasks for you like “wake me at 7 a.m.” to set an alarm.
It will be an opt-in service that could conceivably filter through to all Microsoft devices including Windows 8 and Xbox. Although, this is all conjecture until an announcement is made.
Cortana is expected to release later this month or early in April.
