While these features sound interesting, US-based users will be the first to get their hands on them …so Windows 10 users in the UK could have a bit of a wait.
And what about users who rely on Cortana to switch on the lights in their house?
Thankfully, Microsoft isn’t leaving them in the dark – for the time being. The company has confirmed to ZDnet that users will still be able to manage smart home devices through the AI-powered assistant using the dedicated iOS and Android Cortana apps for the time being.
When it comes to Microsoft’s longterm plans for the likes of the Cortana-powered Invoke smart speaker from luxury audio brand Harman Kardon, only time will tell.
But if you’re using the Microsoft-built assistant as the only way to turn on the lights, find out the latest weather, and get takeaways delivered …it might be worth looking into switching to Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri.
