E3 2015: Cortana is coming to the Xbox One along with a new interface


Spoiler alert to anyone that hasn’t finished Halo 4. At the end of Halo 4, we saw Cortana sacrifice herself to help Master Chief survive and fight another day. This was a pretty sad moment for fans, as she’s been along for the ride with Master Chief for over 10 years. You can stop frowning now, because it looks like she’s not gone get.

Coming this Christmas, the Xbox One will be undergoing an interface update. Much of that due to Windows 10 releasing later this year and the plan to have seamless integration of it to the Xbox. The core of the update is to help streamline all of the processes users go through in accessing different areas on the dashboard.

That means going to your Friend’s List, Party Chat, Notifications, etc., will all be done with a lot less searching and hassle than it currently is. To also assist with that, will be the new integration of Cortana. She’ll be a lot more intelligent and easier to use than the pre-existing Kinect Voice Commands. Check out the new features in the video below.
