Help to keep Cortana as the name for the new Windows Phone PA

Cortana for Windows Phone

Cortana on your Windows Phone

If you keep up-to-date with news on the Windows Phone platform, you will know that an unfortunate leak of the Windows Phone 8.1 build has spread the news of an application in beta which will replace the current speech search tools currently named “zCortana”. While many Windows Phone beta applications from Microsoft will normally have their names changed to be suitable for the platform, many people within the Windows Phone community are insisting that Microsoft keep the name Cortana for the new Windows Phone personal assistant.

While I wouldn’t usually publish about leaked information as I believe that it is sometimes bad for companies themselves, I believe that this is something that needs to be looked into. With iPhone users having Siri and Android users having Google Now, Windows Phone users need a Cortana in their lives!

If you think that this is a great idea, then please head over to this UserVoice for Windows Phone where you can vote to keep the codename as the final name for the Windows Phone personal assistant. Fingers crossed that Microsoft listen and when the official Windows Phone 8.1 Blue build is released we will all be pleased with the outcome from the Bing personal assistant that our devices need!
