This announcement will be exciting to windows lover in India that have been eagerly waiting Cortana for Windows 10. Explaining the insight behind Cortana, Ash said, “Our research has shown that aspects of personality such as humor, politeness and approach to national identity resonate differently in different Cortana markets. For example, Cortana understands how highly the UK values self-deprecating humor. Dryness and irony are traits that filter subtly into her personality, and she uses playful sarcasm in her responses if she senses you’re fooling around.”
Humor and cultural relevance is key to impress Cortana’s Indian user base. To highlight its focus on India, Microsoft has included an Indian joke:
