Microsoft’s Updated Voice Command System “Cortana” to go Toe-to-Toe with Siri

Voice Search MNBMicrosoft’s current implementation of voice commands in Windows Phone is pretty weak to say the least. Tell Me doesn’t do much besides launch apps and call up your contacts, but that’s set to change in WP 8.1 when Microsoft introduced “C” the WP personal assistant (derived from the Halo game). According to the latest rumors and screenshots Cortana will be much more functional, being able to bring up weather, navigate to Home/Work, call up your significant other and more.

The big question is, will it be voiced by the same voice actor from the Halo game? (Yes please!)

Check out some screenshots below, as well as many more over at the verge
