Cortana, Microsoft's personal assistant, announced at Build 2014, is the answer to Apple's Siri and Google S Voice. Microsoft claimed that Cortana is a combination of Siri and S Voice. Cortana have capability to do much thing that will assist the user.
Before Cortana do all the great things, she needs know a little bit about the user, includes the inner circle, it contains some contact information like your brother, sister, girlfriend, etc.
Cortana can do great thins like:

  • Giving weather information
  • Reminding user to do something at specified condition
    (eg. "Remind me to tell about my sister's new puppy when I call her", the a reminder will appear when I call my sister")
  • Giving information about something
    (eg. "What's Bill Gates' birthday?" or "Who is you father?" or "Who created you?")
  • Set an alarm
  • Set an appointment
    (She will tell you if you have another appointment at the same time, eg. "Just let you to know that you'll have to pick up ### at the same time")
  • Call/send message to someone in contact
  • Giving direction to specified place
  • Sing
