As a first timer of the Cortana feature in Windows phone, I am mesmerized by the capability of Cortana. I never had this feature until I changed my region to the United States. It is amazing to have a digital personal assistant. I feel like Iron Man owning Jarvis. Now, I am using Cortana to set up my schedule as well as reminding me of the things I need to do.
The voice recognition capability is amazing and very sensitive. I am not a native English speaker, but, Cortana actually understands every single word I say. I tried to experiment other commands aside from the usual inquiry of asking the weather, cheapest restaurant, or booking my flights. Quite crazy for a bit, I interviewed Cortana about her/his gender, and seriously uttered the words “I love you.” Her responses were hilarious.
So far in my explorations, I have discovered that Cortana is capable of doing many things aside from executing business-oriented command. I’m a bit surprised that she can sing (a lullaby for the first time). Cracking jokes is also one thing she is fond of. Your mind can also be lubricated by the riddles she provides. She can narrate excerpts of a story. She can also make impersonations of movie characters. Wait, here is more. She can actually play a guessing game.
What amused me the most is the capability to imitate animal sounds. I know the audio is a bit far fetched. However, it has an element of cuteness in it. Along the list of farm animals so farm are: pig, fish, horse, dog, cat, bird, frog, cow, turkey, duck, and sheep. Finally, she delivered her punchline when I asked, “What does a fox say?” She replied with the lyrics of Ylvis famous song. “Ring ring dididing”
