Video: Cortana in the WP8.1 Emulator!


Cortana, Microsoft’s personal assistant for Windows Phone 8.1, was a huge hit at the Build announcement on Tuesday, but had remained the subject of speculation, and rumours, not actually appearing in leaked versions of the SDK prior to this.

If you want to have a play with it yourself, you will need a PC that supports virtualisation, the ability to run the Windows Phone emulator, a version of Visual Studio 2013 updated to RC2 and of course the new WP8.1 SDK, which all can be found here. Most notable is that it is still in beta, and if I changed the language in the emulator to UK English, Cortana would not run.

I quickly captured some of the features in the new SDK emulator today.
