Microsoft Inc. about to bring “Cortana” voice-assistant with Windows Phone 8.1 in April

According to the MFSTNerd, the Twitter account of a purported Microsoft source, informed that the proposed voice-assistant is about to reach the Nokia Lumia models by the April this year and it will be voiced by Mr. Halo's Jen Taylor, who is the main voice behind the game's artificial intelligence (AI) character, the Cortana.

The Microsoft Inc. has been rumored to be working hard on its first ever voice-assistant feature since the last September, which is based on the character of the firm's own published gaming title. The rumored application made its first appearance back in the last September 2013, when some of the screenshots of an early Windows Phone build was leaked online, and was listed as the 'zCortana'.

Some reports by the famous online blog, The Verge, also showed some of the screenshots of the Cortana app, which had indicated that the service is going to offer the weather information, the notifications, and the calendar, in addition to the alarms and phone calls features. The screenshots had also indicated that the application will be location-aware, as well.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
