Does The New Smart Features In Microsoft’s Cortana Make Them Competitive Against The Likes Of Amazon And Google?
Microsoft’s Cortana has some new updates to share regarding its “Connected Home” feature list. Since its release in 2014, it has helped Windows 10 users in answering questions, setting reminders, and offering other information.
Cortana’s latest update will have it doing a lot more in just a few voice commands. It has also grown more advanced and intelligent. Scenes and Rules are the two new features in Cortana to make it better in automatic controlling of the smart gadgets.
Scenes and Rules show spectacular performance. Users can connect Cortana to their smart appliance’s account and with that, control them via Rule.
These features allow the users to control their smart gadgets remotely. Scenes are basically a set of actions that work to connect multiple appliances together.
You can create a morning scene in which you link the lights, ceiling fan, thermostat and ask Cortana to turn off the lights, set the thermostat and boil the kettle.
With Scene, these actions will all run simultaneously. With these new features, Cortana’s popularity might shoot up, considering the new levels of comfort and convenience it offers.
