Cortana in Skype will help you in a couple of ways. number one, its in-context assistance will make sure you get useful suggestions based on what you are chatting about with the other person.
Given an example, Cortana can give you restaurant options, movie reviews, and even smart reply suggestions. It can also schedule events and set reminders.
Secondly, you’ll also be able to have one-on-one chats with Cortana, as the assistant is now also a contact in Skype. “Get answers to your burning questions, like the name of the lead actor in your favorite movie or what the weather outlook is for the weekend,” Microsoft explains.
You can also ask Cortana to check your flight status, give you a stock quote, or suggest the best restaurants in your area.
The integration is currently only live in the United States. There’s currently no information on when other markets will get it.
