Cortana grammar library pulled from the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK

We've already gotten a solid overview of what to expect as far as functionality from the Cortana voice assistant that is coming with Windows Phone 8.1, and now we're getting to see a list of potential voice commands that have been pulled from the WP 8.1 SDK. Cortana itself isn't a part of the SDK, but it seems that the grammar library for Cortana is in the SDK...

I especially like the reminders. "Remind me to pick ______ next time at the grocery store?" The implication with this statement is that the device pays attentions to your habits and things like where you shop, and then can contextually determine when you're back the grocery store without you having to create a geo-fence. It would be pretty awesome if it worked like this.

This is good update for WP but Siri had these features three years ago when first it came with iPhone 4S..!!

Yeah, but the problem is that Siri came out on a iPhone, and it's call Siri ;-)

Yep.. You know if you troll on a WP related article I'm gonna seek you out...... Well, as long as it's all fun and games.. Some of these trolls are just pathetic, and I ignore them,,,,,, but you're special, my dear..

Wow! Cortana is much more advanced than, say, Siri!!!!!!!

I hope it is, and it certainly should be considering how much time Microsoft spent on developing it. They did also say that they were waiting to make something revolutionary, not evolutionary, so it must at least somewhat live up to those standards.

Google Now is light years ahead, but wp, keep trying.
13. Penny (Posts: 1625; Member since: 04 Feb 2011)
Not really. I use Google Now and while it is very good (especially on a Moto X), I'm not sure it will be as good as what Cortana is shaping up to be.

Oh, really? Will Cortana be able to turn on/off hardware, turn on/off my pc, open garage/apartmet door, turn on/off house lights?
Not for a power users.

Oh don't worry! Given Halo's reputation and popularity, I doubt that M$ would release something that's subpar to Google's offerings. Not that Google's offerings were "light years ahead" in any way.

as an experiment can phone arena tries these commands on both google now and siri ? the result might be interesting.

Yup...PA should do a comparison between google now, siri and cortana when it is released....

Have they found a cure for Rampancy yet or am I going to have to say goobye after 7 years? My heart just can't take that.
