You might be using windows 10 from a long time but the most popular feature of windows 10 Cortana wasn’t available until now if you’re living in India. Finally, Microsoft has made available Cortana to Indian users as well. The update was officially released by Microsoft on Thursday. So in case if you haven’t installed the windows 10 updates in a while, we’ll suggest you to go ahead and install the pending latest updates whatever there are. These updates will unlock the real potential of the windows 10 and allows you to get the most out of your Windows 10.
Microsoft official says that it has been working on the Cortana to make it suitable for Indian people like understanding the Indian accent portion and along with that Microsoft is also including an Indian voice in the latest update making Cortana much easier to understand. Apart from this, all the country specific sports like cricket, hockey and additional apps like golgaappas is also available in the Cortana which specifically tailored for India. Although Microsoft take a little more time to tailor Cortana for India but looks like a little wait was worth waiting this time.
The first preview of Indian Cortana was unveiled by Microsoft in the month of September in one of its Insider preview. But since the Microsoft was working on improving it, specifically the complex voice module of the application, the officials told that it will be released later for India. And now finally it’s here and we’re already loving it.
Indian Cortana recognises lots of things that belongs to India like Indian festivals, customs, weather, Movie tickets, etc. On asking about – “what does you think of festival of lights”, Cortana responds surprisingly well- “”in the courtyard of imagination, I would light up a thousand of diyas.”, pretty impressive work my Microsoft indeed.
The Cortana also works with lot of metro apps like BookMyshow which you can use to book a ticket for movies playing in theatres nearby your locality with just a voice command. Microsoft has also included the ability of Cortana to take a selfie with just a voice command. Cortana is getting intelligent with every new update and now Cortana can also check your inbox to find out the latest appointments, events or whatever that you want Cortana to remind you of.
Windows 10 is a huge success for Microsoft and now with Cortana tailored specifically for India, Microsoft can easily take over the Siri which has limited capability when it comes to functioning in India. Microsoft is continuously adding features to Windows 10, stay tuned for more updates.
