Microsoft has been working on Cortona from the last few months to bring a completely new and interactive UI. And now, the company has started testing the new Cortona on Windows 10 PCs that come with a new chat-based UI. The new beta app is now available to testers and it supports voice and text queries.
The new Cortona app is designed to be more conversational. Microsoft is working on to separate its digital assistant away from the built-in Windows 10 search experience, and focusing more on business users in the process. This new Cortana app for Windows 10 supports most of the existing features, including queries, assistant conversations, opening apps, managing lists, and basics like setting reminders, alarms, and timers.
“Not all the features from the previous Cortana experience are available just yet,” explains Dona Sarkar, Microsoft’s Windows Insider chief. “As a Beta, we plan to add more features over time with updates to Cortana from the Microsoft Store.”
Microsoft has also made some fine refinements in the Cortana so that “Hey, Cortana” is less intrusive, and the assistant now supports both light and dark themes on Windows 10. This Cortona app is now available in the latest Fast Ring preview of Windows 10, build 18945. Itis expected to debut to all Windows 10 users in the first half of 2020.
