Besides giving users an option to have a male personal assistant, the virtual personal assistant will have some new features in Windows 10. For example, if Cortana finds out you are going somewhere, like a movie, she will suggest an Uber ride.

Looking for weather, your favorite team’s score, a Windows keyboard shortcut – well you know whom to ask. Cortana also gets new darker UI.
