Microsoft's Cortana on Windows Phone 8.1 gets compared to Apple's Siri on iPhone in a new video

Apple's Siri vs. Microsoft's Cortana

One of Microsoft's biggest selling points on Windows Phone 8.1 is its new voice assistant Cortana. In order to show us how capable Cortana really is, Microsoft demonstrates the voice assistant on an affordable Nokia Lumia 635 go up against Siri on the Apple iPhone 5s.

"Say hello to Cortana, your new personal assistant. Cortana will remind you to leave early to beat traffic and help you get to your destination on time, will remind you that you need milk when passing the grocery store, and will remind you to say happy birthday when your mom calls," the video description reads.

Cortana can remind you about something specific the next time you speak to a particular person. On top of that, Cortana can let you know of a local flower shop (for example) when you are driving close to one.
