    I'm not sure how many of you are aware of this. If you press the search button once you get Bing. If you hold the button continuously you get a voice recognition system, something similar to Cortana.

    you can hit the mic button and voice dictate text messages too in the app.

    kinda sad it doesn't apply elsewhere.

    To rephrase the question in the title a but differently: Didn't you know that it had one? On WP8, you had to press the WP button for a while to activate it, on WP8.1 it is a long press on the search button indeed. ;) Very usefull if you want to call somebody while using you're headset. ;) Even Symbian, and even the Nokia 3510 had voice recognation software to call somebody, Symbian even had the useless function to ask "What time is it?". I think also WP7.8 had voice recognition, I don't recall on knowing that for sure though.

    Microsoft had that voice recognition feature for a long time. Windows Mobile/Pocket PC had it many years ago, long before Siri.
