Microsoft has developed a prototype of a connected car that recognises commands from Cortana.
Cortana would display itself on the windshield of the car and would help drivers map their locations as well as tasks like making restaurant reservations and updating your calendar. Microsoft has been dabbling in the area of connected cars and this may be a breakthrough for the company but they will face fierce competition from Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto.
Despite that, Cortana has been made a key part of Windows 10 so making it work in-car may be the next best step to take. Cortana is not ready for all cars yet as it is still a prototype, but Microsoft aims to work with Taiwanese partners to improve the current prototype and possibly perfect it.
