Cortana is said to be far better than other voice assistant software, and the company claims it to be more of a personal assistant rather than just a software. It is now being compared to Android’s Google Now as it will also tend to collect most of the information available to serve better and more accurate results to its users.

The ‘Cortana’ name is inspired from the name of a fictional artificial intelligence character from the popular video game Halo.

The leaked images also showcase upgraded Windows Phone Store. Windows Phone 8.1 is likely to be officially unveiled by the company at an event in April.
