32 funny questions to ask Cortana: Windows Phone 8.1 can sing to you and tell jokes
How to have some fun with Microsoft’s digital assistant
Microsoft has a sense of humour and has programmed plenty of funny responses into Cortana. Here are 32 funny questions to ask your Windows Phone running version 8.1.
We love Windows Phone. Only the lack of apps and in-app features lets it down but Cortana can sometime cheer you up. The digital assistant is pretty sophisticated and can almost understand natural language so you don’t have to learn commands as with Siri on the iPhone and Google Now on Android devices.
You can ask about the weather, for example, in many different ways such as “What’s the weather going to be like this weekend?”, “Weather forecast for the weekend”, “Will I need an umbrella this weekend?” and Cortana knows what you mean.
Microsoft has given Cortana dozens of amusing replies: you just need to know which questions to ask. The answers below are usually one of two or more different responses, so try asking again and you should get a different answer.
Windows Phone 8.1 is a free update that’s available for most handets running Windows Phone 8, including the Lumia 520. Some smartphones such as the Lumia 630 ship with Windows Phone 8.1, Cortana is still in beta but there’s now a UK English version so you don’t have to change your region to US English any longer. There’s every chance that Cortana’s wit will be even sharper in the future when she’s no longer in beta.
