    hi everyone, I'm new here, from Boston

    I'm thinking of getting an Icon and was wondering ......

    on the I phone we have Siri

    on the Android we can use "OK GOOGLE"

    Is there a voice search on the Icon?

    thanks in advance

    There is a voice assistant currently on WP however it's no where near either what Android or Apple have. However, when WP8.1 comes out it will have Cortana. I'm uncertain if it will be released on all WP at once but it will be very similar like Siri but possibly better.

    Here's what Microsoft's Cortana looks like for Windows Phone 8.1 | Windows Phone Central

    You can download other voice assistants from the Windows Phone Store that may be better than the standard one until WP8.1 comes out. Which is around the time of MS BUILD in April.

    One existing alternate option is Indigo available here. I haven't used it much myself but I know a friend who uses it often and likes it. Your mileage may vary.
