    We know what Cortana can do and how we can make the best of it by an array of functions provided. But in between that fuss, I think we all forgot the one little thing that makes Cortana more unique that its rivals. Emotions.

    "We learned a couple days ago that Cortana would have emotion, but at the time we only heard that the circular icon that represents Cortana would be animated to show that emotion. Now, we're learning that there will likely also be tonal shifts in how Cortana responds based on emotional cues. The code shows 6 emotional states for Cortana (the names of the states don't always give an accurate representation, so we've added descriptors where needed): considerate, sensitive, satisfied (excited), abashed (embarrassed), thinking (thoughtful), and sorry. We would assume that Cortana's natural state will have some wit and humor, like Siri, which could explain why that isn't there." - Phonearena.

    So why is this feature not shown at the Build 2014 event? It could be because Cortana is still in beta. So I am going to assume that this feature will be included when Cortana is released globally. So what do you guys think? Is this something you look forward to?

    That would be a really awesome feature of Cortana. I'm curious to see how Cortana will be rolled out and what Cortana learns via use.

    Cortana is officially in beta, so I wouldn't have expected to see all the purported capabilities during BUILD.
