Cortana - Microsoft’s digital voice assistant

Cortana – Microsoft’s digital voice assistant

Since it is becoming more of a necessity for voice assistants to support home automation, Cortana is silently increasing its span of compatibility with smart home devices. Cortana running on Windows 10, Android and iOS can now be paired up with IFTT (in simple words, a task setter for operating systems), thermostats and smarts lights from ecobee, Honeywell Lyric, Honeywell Total Connect Comfort, LIFX, TP-Link Kasa and Geeni. With IFTT’s pair up, you can set custom phrases and actions that Cortana will perform upon hearing them. Let us see if Microsoft decides to give us a (smart) surprise as well!
