Microsoft Cortana

About a month ago, we discussed Microsoft’s upcoming personal digital assistant, Cortana, and speculated on how it could be used with the Xbox One. Microsoft revealed more details about Cortana at its Build 2014 conference, and while there still isn’t any news of Cortana-Xbox integration, we still see it as a likely possibility.

What Microsoft did announce about the Xbox One was the arrival of cross-platform apps. It won’t be available for a while, but it sounds as though you’ll eventually be able to use Windows apps on your Xbox One.

What apps would you most like to see on your console? Would you like the ability to use the Kinect’s voice commands with Cortana?
