Microsoft has announced that Windows Phone 8.1 device owners will be able to ask Cortana to predict who will win games in the upcoming 2014 National Football League season, with those predictions powered by Bing.
Users of Cortana can simply ask 'Who will win the Seahawks or the Packers?' and Cortana will reply with her prediction.
You may remember that Bing and Cortana teamed up to offer predictions of who would win the games in the 2014 World Cup soccer tournament earlier this summer. Now that ability has been extended to NFL games. Microsoft says:
Naturally, Cortana and Bing are predicting that Microsoft's home team, the Seattle Seahawks, will win the first game of the season against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, the first official game of the season. What do you think of Microsoft adding NFL game predictions to Cortana and Bing?
