The voice of Siri, and Google Now are familiar to users for being voice-search helpers. The Windows 8.1 update has Cortana that will be the companion for searches, replacing the outmoded Bing search on the Windows Phone.
The name Cortana comes from the game, Halo.
Voice activation to locate data, reminders, contact information, tracking flights and more is what Cortana is all about. Cortana saves information in a notebook system.
It gets its broad range of function from Foursquare, Bing and other services.
