Microsoft working on Cortana voice search service; Coming Fall 2015.

Around September of last year reports came out concerning a new voice search service called "Cortana." Cortana has been confirmed to be voiced by the same actor who voiced Cortana in the Halo video games, Jen Taylor.

 

According to an entry on msftnerd:

 

"Cortana will launch first in beta on Lumia this April for US developers.

The service will expand to the Bing app for iPhone in the US market this fall. The underlying technology will be extended to American Xbox One & Windows users in 2015 with Threshold. Availability in additional English-speaking territories will be spread out over 2015 & 2016."

 

This service is likely Microsoft's attempt to rival Apple's Siri voice searching service. I'm personally looking forward to using Cortana as a voice search system, let me know what your thoughts are in the comment section below.

Finally! Always wanted this to happen; I really do support this.

 

Although personally Cortana is boring compared to EDI, or Legion. Having Legion replacing Siri is a dream-come-true.

 

Can't argue it. EDI or Legion would win any day for the best voice. Yes, I know Legion's voice isn't the natural voice actor's voice. Derp, obviously...
