Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Integrates Cortana, Xbox App To Windows 10

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is looking to more tightly integrate Cortana, its voice assistant similar to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s Siri, and a new Xbox application to Windows 10, a report from The Verge reveals.

The revelation about the plans of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) for its newest operating system was made after an early consumer build was leaked out of the Redmond, Washington-based software giant, the publication says.

Among the highlights of the leaked Build 9901 of Windows 10 is an update that lets Cortana reside “at the top of the search interface for Windows 10, responding to text and voice commands,” The Verge reports.

Cortana, it went further, can access notebook, reminders and interests on Windows 10 pointing to Microsoft planning to have people use the voice assistant more and more for tasks they may want to do with Windows 10.

Nonetheless, the publication notes that Cortana is not yet very functional on Build 9901. However, the fact that it now sits on top of the search interface is still indicative of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s big plans for the voice assistant.

Meanwhile, a new version of the Xbox application was also spotted in the new Microsoft operating system leak. According to The Verge, the new app is seemingly intended to give access to Windows 10 users to the whole Xbox ecosystem.

This means that achievements, friends lists, activity feeds, and the Xbox Store may soon be very easy to access to users of the latest Windows operating system. The Verge ventures that this app may also feature SmartGlass integration in the future.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has big plans for the three screens of the home – the computer, the mobile device and the entertainment device. These tighter integrations of components of its mobile and gaming platforms – Cortana and Xbox – seem pointed in that direction.
