Microsoft recently announced their latest operating system, Windows 10 to come out soon. Windows 10 is centered on the customer, with new features that include things such as Spartan (a new browser that is said to have the most advanced features), having more integration with Xbox capabilities, and Cortana being fully functional for all Windows 10 PCs. These are just a few of the new features for Windows 10, but we are particularly excited about the integration of Cortana on the PC.

The trend is continuing to shift in favor of Artificial Intelligence. Cortana integrating onto PC’s is only further validation that top name companies are realizing more and more people are accepting, and actually preferring, the use of a Virtual Assistant in their day-to-day lives. This same paradigm goes for support as well. Consumers are looking to simplify their lives with technology, and a Virtual Assistant allows them that opportunity.

What do you think about having a Virtual Assistant directly on your PC? Will other operating systems follow suit?
