Cortana appears on The Tonight Show, Siri isn't happy

While it hasn’t been made official by Microsoft yet, Cortana has been mentioned last Friday on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The forthcoming intelligent personal assistant for Windows Phone 8.1 got a ‘Thank You’ note from the show’s host. Watch the segment after the break. 

Jimmy Fallon says:

Thank you, Microsoft Windows Phone, for releasing your own voice assistant named Cortana. Whereas Siri put it when she heard the news, ‘Oh, it’s on, bitch!’

It’s still unclear if Cortana will be the official name or if it will be called something else when announced in April. In case you missed it, a leaked video of Cortana has already surfaced. We’re really excited about Windows Phone’s upcoming voice assistant, and we look forward to its official announcement.

Are you ready for Cortana? Sound off in the comments!

Thanks for the tip, SB5!
