Cortana will now flip a coin or roll dice using a random number generator

Apparently, these features are only available for now on the U.S. version of Cortana. According to Windows Phone 8.1 users in the states, asking Cortana to "roll dice" will result in one die being rolled on the screen. Tell Cortana to "roll the dice" and a pair of dice will roll on the screen.
Siri will roll two dice, and flip a coin. although the results are only written and do not show up in a graphic form. Google Now won't flip a coin or roll dice for you, but the personal assistant will tell you about some apps (many of which are free), which will handle both chores.

Just reached into my pocket and pulled out a coin and flipped it to decide if this was really worthy news. Heads- Nope, Tails- naw....but now that theres this nifty app I will have to teach my grand kids how to flip coins with their thumbs instead of with their phones. "Listen here sonny, back in the day we used this thing called a quarter".......
