Cortana will help the phone user in many ways. Listed below are some of them:

  • Although in its beta version in many regions, Cortana can still serve many functions. With a simple “Hey Cortana”, the user can wake up the voice assistant. Make calls, answer calls, send texts, and read them using Cortana.
  • The user can add events to your calendar, set an alarm, and dictate notes to Cortana. It will update you on the weather in your city when asked to.
  • Cortana will serve as your GPS system; it will give you directions, let you know the traffic conditions on your route and tell you if you need to leave earlier to make that all important appointment on time.
  • Cortana has her own ‘notebook’ where she takes notes on what the user likes, dislikes, prefers, doesn’t prefer. If you’ve searched for “One Direction” quite enough, then it will alert you if the band is playing near you. Once the user lets Cortana know about an interest, she will pull out latest news articles, information, updates about it from the web.
  • Like any great piece of A.I, Cortana too is witty. The user can ask her a question and she’ll reply. She can share stories and jokes according to what the user talks about.
  • When you set “quiet hours” on your Windows phone, Cortana will ensure that you don’t receive calls or texts unless they are a part of your “inner circle”.

With such a technology available to us, the day is not afar when our whole lives will actually revolve around our gadgets.
