U.S. version of Cortana gets 6 new animations, Chinese version grabs 24
Google Now has no personality, while Siri's personality is revealed through the way that the personal assistant answers certain questions, using a tone to her voice. Cortana has a combination of audio cues, and visual animations that lets you know what "she" is feeling. In China, 24 new animations have been added to the platform's virtual personal assistant.

The new animations in China include expressions like "Ashamed" or certain activities like "Bounce". They are employed whenever Cortana is telling a joke, or saying a trigger phrase (similar to Android users saying "Ok, Google" to get Google Now up and awaiting your inquiry).

Six new animations have been added to the U.S. version of Cortana, and some can be used when you ask Cortana to do an impression. Many of the U.S. animations contain pop culture references such as a magic wand for Harry Potter, an outline of Jedi Master Yoda for Star Wars, and the minions from Despicable Me.
