Cortana debuted with Windows Phone 8.1, and is a direct competitor to Apple’s Siri and Google’s Now/OK Google feature. The digital assistant attempts to helps users find information in all sorts of ways, but for the moment, you need to be on Microsoft’s mobile platform.
According to a new job listing spotted by LiveSide, the description reads “Being part of the Cortana team you will have the opportunity to push the frontier, redefine the personalization experience on Windows”, the listing states.
