Reportedly network sources, virtual assistant Microsoft Cortana will be completely separated from Windows 10 and will turn in a separate application. Currently the beta version of Cortana appeared in the app store Windows store, where it can download all comers.
This suggests that in the future Microsoft will update the voice assistant separate from the software platform. This approach will help Cortana to get new features faster. However, earlier, the virtual assistant Microsoft was positioned as a web service, so the updates could be delivered without making any changes to the Windows kernel 10. In addition, a separate app will give users more control, and if necessary it can be removed from your device.
It should be noted that the separation of the voice assistant from the operating system began earlier, when Cortana was removed from Windows search 10. Earlier it was reported that the team plans to integrate new features that will make it the voice assistant is more natural. Due to this, the user dialogues with Cortana will be more like communicating with a real person.
Despite the fact that Cortana was introduced as a virtual assistant in the operating system, and later he began to work on different platforms, including iOS, intelligent speakers and other electronic devices. The allocation of Cortana in a standalone application can be one of the ways to promote the virtual assistant.
