Last time we talked about Cortana, Microsoft’s rumored AI assistant, we looked into it’s purported features and even saw some screenshots of it. But we never actually saw it running on a Windows Phone. Well your wish is now fulfilled, as a video is doing the rounds on Youtube showing it running.
And yeah, it looks pretty damn awesome! It is pretty much like a mix of Siri and Google Now, having the former’s wittiness and the latter’s contextual stuff.
Looks like you need a Microsoft account to use it and you got to enter some sites from where you want to get your news and also got some questions about your preferences. It is a tad more tedious to set up than Siri or Google Now but may result in a more personalized experience.
Overall looks like quite something and may be the missing key for Windows Phone.
