    Yes, there is TellMe. Microsoft's version of Siri. Hold down the Windows key to activate.

    Is there a way to find a list of commands etc? I tried using it several times last night, mostly trying to get directions. On my S3 I could say Navigate to blah blah blah and it would bring up turn by turn to my destination. ON WP8 it kept opening one note and creating a note that said "Navigate to blah blah blah" Not so helpful lol.. I tried several different commands but none seemed to work with regards to directions etc.

    I asked, "Where is the closest movie theater?" and it gave me a search of movie theaters - not really equivalent to Siri, in my opinion. I am interested in seeing how it handles other requests so I will keep testing it.

    It isn't natural language based so you can't just ask it however you want. You need to know how to ask the questions.

    You can see the list by holding the Windows Button and hitting "?"

    A lot of stuff can be found using a simple Find, because Bing has a good amount of stuff integrated.

    The list there also details the different apps that support TellMe integration
