Cortana is coming to Windows Phone 8.1 in a future update. It sounds like the assistant app is still a long way away for the global market, but for US Windows Phone users, they could be talking to a little, pocket Cortana as early as next month.

While the Windows Phone AI assistant will sound like Halo’s Cortana (apparently voice actor Jen Taylor is involved), she won’t look like Cortana. No blue, half-naked female AI this time, Halo fans – instead, Cortana is just going to be a blue halo that animates whenever it’s thinking or talking to you. See how we’re referring to Cortana as an “it” now? Yeah, that makes us sad too.

On the plus side, you’ll be able to get the Cortana AI to call you by a nickname, so if you really wanted to, we’re pretty sure you could make it call you “Chief”. You can see pictures of this rather disappointing blue halo over at the source link below.
