Cortana can now help you to order a pizza from Domino's

Ever since announcing Cortana back in April, Microsoft has been regularly expanding the capabilities of its digital personal assistant. Just a few days ago, Microsoft launched a Cortana preview in France, Germany, Italy and Spain - but she's also gained new features elsewhere in recent months, such as flight tracking and word definitions, along with fun stuff like speaking Klingon.

Now, she can even help you to order a pizza in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, as Windows Central reports. Domino's Pizza has updated its app for those markets, adding support for Cortana voice interactions, to make placing your order that little bit easier (or - more likely - to just let you show off to your friends that you can talk to your phone to help make food come to you).

Strictly speaking, you won't actually be able to place an order using Cortana alone, as she can only help you with a limited set of functions within the app for now. Actionable commands include:

"Domino's, show me deals."
"Domino's, where's my stuff?"
"Domino's, show me pizzas."
"Domino's, show my basket." (if items are in your basket)
"Domino's, show me store details."

Domino's UK and Ireland has also added SmartGlass support for Xbox One users who have the pizza chain's app installed on their consoles, so you can now use SmartGlass to navigate through the Xbox One app via your device.
