Cortana will now predicts NFL winners, or will try to at least
Microsoft loves pointing out all of Cortana’s new tricks, and when you aren’t using the assistant to remember birthdays, flowers or getting traffic updates, you can now ask the simulated voice who will win the next football game.
Microsoft debuted this feature with soccer matches from Brazil earlier this year with the use of Bing and now the feature is coming home to America for the NFL. According to Microsoft’s announcement, “Cortana ended up predicting a near perfect bracket in the knockout rounds. Now, Bing is shifting gears for their prediction technology to American football – just in time for the start of the 2014 football season tomorrow.”
Microsoft states that Bing will predict NFL match-ups just by asking, “Who will win Team A or Team B?” and she will provide an answer. Your phone will need Windows 8.1 to use this feature.
