Cortana Face

And now we introduce you to Cortana for your Windows Phone

A few months ago we did an article on Cortana citing that she may make a return as your personal assistant, much like her character was to Master Chief in the acclaimed Halo Series. Read that article here. And Microsoft kept Cortana true to her character by ensuring that Jen Taylor who voiced Cortana in the Halo series did the voice over here as well.

Before we show you your personal Cortana, here is the video showing her off through the halo series and her relationship with the Chief.

Meet the new Cortana

Watch as Cortana, the most personal smartphone assistant, comes to life. With the power of Bing behind her, Cortana learns your interests and helps keep track of all that matters.

Cortana is powered by Microsoft’s Bing search engine and essentially replaces the search function on a Windows Phone smart-phone. You can use it to make phone calls, send texts, take a note or give you a reminder. The more you use the search function the more Cortana learns about you, by asking you if you want her to store it.The Windows Phone 8.1 update starts rolling out to consumers who currently own Windows Phones in the next few months.
