#Microsoft doesn't just want its #Cortana in your phone or on your desk — it wants the voice assistant to be a mainstay in your smart home.
As part of a WinHEC presentation, the company's May Ji has revealed that Windows 10 Creator Update will bring #Cortana to Windows 10 IoT Core devices with screens.
Combined with longer-ranged voice detection (key to #Microsoft's Home Hub plans), you wouldn't have to be anywhere near a PC to use the digital helper — you could ask your thermostat about the weather, or add an appointment to your calendar through your fridge.
Those concepts aren't new, of course, but #Cortana can sync with your phone and Windows PC on a level that isn't possible with most smart home devices.
