Cortana appears on The Tonight Show, Siri isn't happy

 

While it hasn’t been made official by Microsoft yet, Cortana has been mentioned last Friday on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The forthcoming intelligent personal assistant for Windows Phone 8.1 got a ‘Thank You’ note from the show’s host. Watch the segment after the break. 

 

 

Jimmy Fallon says:
 

Thank you, Microsoft Windows Phone, for releasing your own voice assistant named Cortana. Whereas Siri put it when she heard the news, ‘Oh, it’s on, bitch!’

 

It’s still unclear if Cortana will be the official name or if it will be called something else when announced in April. In case you missed it, a leaked video of Cortana has already surfaced. We’re really excited about Windows Phone’s upcoming voice assistant, and we look forward to its official announcement.

lol...fallon's awesome.

I'm just hoping that ms sticks with the cortana name and not call it something like bing personal voice assistant or something....unnatural.

Cortana is awesome in halo because it's hologram with voice assistant but you don't get the same experience with windows phone.

Just shows you something about WP, sure it's behind the other two but it's share is growing and when you hear about it on shows like this when a year ago you never would've then, I think it's another sign of growth.

It's possible that was a paid spot. Twice.

 

However, the first time he mentioned it earlier in the week he says "Microsoft announced..." which I don't believe they've officially announced anything, all just leaks, right?

So it's either some pretty good paid spots and they're definitely naming this thing Cortana, or we're really picking up steam, in which case it would be insane NOT to call it Cortana at this point!

 

This was the first spot: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=L3iRLaLog8Q
