Microsoft's Ash: Our top priority with Cortana is Windows Phone
Apparently, Ash's comments set off a number of complaints from Windows Phone users, wondering how he could talk about sharing Cortana when the service hasn't been perfected for its native platform. In a series of tweets, the Cortana program manager laid out Microsoft's game plan for the personal assistant. Number one on the list, is to make Cortana great for Windows Phone customers. Number two is to make Cortana so good for Windows Phone users that they tell everyone they know to switch platforms. Only after Microsoft takes care of Windows Phone and Windows users first, will the software giant consider letting Cortana out to play with others.
Get the point? Ash had to backtrack on his comments yesterday about Cortana possibly being made available for iOS and Android. Apparently, he was surprised at the backlash that he faced from the number of Windows Phone fans.
