Microsoft is working on a new UI for Cortana, similar to Google's Assistant on Android


If you're a huge fan of how the Google Assistant looks on Android, we may have some good news for Windows Central reports that Microsoft is producing a more conversational UI for Cortana that’ll resemble Google Assistant on Android. Users can type a question to Cortana, and the written responses could be accompanied by a voice reply. Voice input will still exist, as well. This new interface might more closely resemble a texting conversation, like Allo. 


Microsoft released a test version of Windows 10 last week, which included changes to Cortana. It can set reminders by scanning images (with your permission) for things like events. So if you take a photo of a poster, Cortana can then create a reminder from it. Cortana also has a new lasso feature that lets stylus users circle content to create reminders for things like movies.

What do you think about this?
