Microsoft is all set to phase out Cortana from its Windows 10 strategy, as the company split up the digital assistant from Windows 10 search with the release of Windows 10 May 2019 Update. Recently, Microsoft has turned Cortana into a standalone app in Windows 10.
Even though Microsoft’s Cortana was released back in 2015, still it lacks some useful functionalities offered by Alexa and Siri. It allows Windows 10 users to translate sentences, phrases, or words, making it particularly useful for specific situations.
Having said that, Cortana doesn’t guarantee to provide accurate translation results. The accuracy is affected by factors such as language, complexity, and accent in individual scenarios. Moreover, Microsoft has failed to bring innovation into its digital assistant, which makes it difficult for Cortana to compete with its competitors.
Lenovo Voice For Windows 10 Lands In Microsoft Store
Now it seems like the list of Cortana’s competitors is going to increase, as Lenovo has released its own digital voice assistant for Windows 10. Interestingly, Lenovo Voice offers numerous voice-based functionalities including offline video translation, real-time language translation, along with other voice-based features.
Amongst all the other features, the voice typing capability makes it pretty useful to work on the go. Recently, Aggiornamenti Lumia spotted the Lenovo Voice app on Microsoft Store.
Although the Windows 10 Lenovo Voice app has already landed in the Microsoft Store, still it doesn’t seem to perform any functionality at the moment. We installed the Lenovo Voice app on our system and encountered a message “This service is not available yet”.
Apparently, Lenovo plans to target the Chinese market with its release. It allows you to translate content from English to Chinese and Japanese languages. Hopefully, we would see the support for other languages in future versions. If so, it would definitely be a concerning point for Microsoft.
