Move over Siri, soon you are going to have some competition that goes by the name of Cortana.
It is about time that Microsoft created their very own Siri but they like to call it Cortana. Microsoft is currently testing it and if all goes well they might even include include in a Windows Phone 8.1 update. Microsoft did indeed name it after the Halo character and it will allow Windows Phone users to interact at a higher level with their phone through voice commands. Windows Phone does already include basic voice commands but with Cortana, it will be take to a whole new level.
It is not yet known hoe Cortana is going to work with Windows Phone but you can bet that Microsoft is working on that at this very moment. The images you see above are early images of Cortana but it is certain that the final pics of Cortana are going to look different, How different? Looks like we will just have to wait and see. Microsoft is testing Cortana for it to pull in notifications, weather information, and calendar events into a single central interface.
It is expected that the software will come with Windows Phone 8.1 and that update is also expected to have a notification center and several UI changes. Enjoy the screenshots.
