Microsoft recently rolled out an update for Cortana on Windows Phone 8.1, which introduced a number of fixes, changes and improvements to the virtual assistant Not all is as it seems though, as according to a source within the walls of Microsoft, the company rolled out more than what meets the eye.
Talderon, a user active on the Windows Phone Central forums is an apparent employee at Microsoft, and has better knowledge than many on Cortana’s current development stage. According to Talderon, the latest Cortana update included more than what was actually enabled, and that the most recent update was just the “tip of the iceberg” as to what’s to come.
Talderon didn’t go in the specifics as to what wasn’t enabled in the update, but one thing is for sure, Microsoft are currently in the process of “laying the groundwork” for many of those un-activated features, and that Microsoft are currently testing them on an internal network within Microsoft.
It’s possible that we will see the next set of large updates for Cortana later this month, as Microsoft has committed to two updates per month for the virtual assistant. We recently heard that the UK was going to receive Cortana later this month, hopefully alongside the next major update. Until then, stick around at WinBeta.org for more.Further reading: Cortana, Microsoft, Windows Phone
