    WMPoweruser reported on this from the leaked SDK. Looks like Cortana will be the final name of the WP 8.1 voice assistant | WMPoweruser

    The code says a message pop up will display "blah blah blah .. for CORTANA to work" - Geeks rejoice! Such a great use of brand recognition!

    To me it doesn't really matter, but I know that many will be happy at this news.

    I am hoping that it is Cortana but then again, I don't know how hard it would be for MS to do a find / replace of everything saying "Cortana" to whatever it is..

    I for one am happy! Ecstatic! I loved Cortana in Halo each series. This just gives AI a physical form - which SIRI or Google Now doesn't have.

    Awesome. If true, I'd imagine this is them listening to what the community had to say about it when news first leaked.

    It really does make sense for them to name it Cortana, it's a good fit.
