Microsoft Corp. is working to revamp its digital voice assistant offering, Cortana, in a bid to attract more users, The Wall Street Journal reported Aug. 14.
David Ku, Microsoft's vice president, said the software giant wants customers to use Cortana even when they are not in front of a computer. Ku said one scenario could entail customers using the service to access emails in vehicles.
Javier Soltero, a senior executive at the company, is leading the overhaul efforts for the digital voice assistant. A source with knowledge of the matter said Soltero will disclose further details this fall.
