Hey Cortana comes to all with Windows 10? Windows Mobile to replace Windows Phone??

Two very interesting bits, fresh from latest leaked Windows 10 build, Build 9910. Lumia exclusive “Hey Cortana” feature has made its way to Windows 10 on Desktop and we can safely expect it to be present on Windows 10 Phone version, as it now is an OS wide feature. This also kind of confirms that it will be available for all the devices, as it is now present in normal settings. This is not surprising though, as Microsoft had talked about understanding “broader desire”.

For those unaware of it, “Hey Cortana“ is passive listening feature coming to select Lumia  devices for now with Lumia Denim update. Read more about the Cortana changes seen in Windows 10 Build 9901 here.

Windows-10-CortanaSecond interesting byte is about Windows Phone to Windows Mobile renaming. As per an image posted on Twitter by @leonzandman, it seems Windows (Phone) 10 in fact may be called Windows Mobile. Life comes full circle for some!!

    now microsoft is turning back to old name windows mobile (2010 version 6.5.3)

  • All devices won’t be possible since lack of dedicated hardware will require mic to be always on for any such feature. Will not let the battery last long enough then.
    For Desktop and Laptops (where the build is running now), it is not a problem.

      Fingers crossed (for all devices), but now it is a OS wide feature and that is certainly good news.

        Sure, but there may still be hardware requirements for that feature to be “activated”/functional on any given device. Perhaps what you meant too.

        ps. Request – your web version layout could be improved – the huge pictures make for a lot of scrolling and the bottom with more stories is kind of unruly.. Works pretty well on phones though but the lack of ability to comment easily is a bit of a downside. 🙂

          Have you considered registering to the site. We have login button in the main menu now.

  • i think the windows.server is for windows servers like windows server 2012, might be for windows server 2015.

      I agree, that may be for Windows sever ’15
