By the way, don’t forget that Cortana is now also available on Android, meaning you can also enjoy it from your smartphone.
If you have an iPhone instead of Android (or macOS instead of Windows), don’t worry, fun is guaranteed with Siri as well. For that do not miss our article on the funniest and craziest questions to ask Siri.
Are you a Man or a Woman?
Come on … you must have wondered. Cortana claims to be a woman, although she denies being human. In other words, neither man nor woman.
What does Cortana mean?
Have you ever wondered? There is no one better than Cortana to answer this question: “I was appointed Cortana for Halo Artificial Intelligence. Of course, she’s 500 years old in the future, so maybe she was named after me. ”
If you still don’t know, Halo is a famous video game saga owned by Microsoft. The fictional reality-based video game from the future has the Spartans battling alien invaders from the Covenant.
Are you real?
In a way, it is. According to Cortana herself, she thinks, so it exists. Have you ever fantasized that by talking to Cortana, you are talking to a real person?
What are you wearing?
And in case you imagined Cortana as a person of flesh and blood, you were probably also wondering: what will she wear?
“A little something from nothing they gave me in the development department,” Cortana said without specifying anything. We will have to be content with what our mind can imagine.
How are you?
You’ll have to keep using your imagination, because the only definition you’ll get from Cortana will be, “I am engineering personified.”
Who created you?
“I still can’t tell you all of my secrets,” Cortana replies.
What a Cortana mystery! You intrigued us!
Where do you live?
And where does our friend Cortana live? Are you going to rest in your virtual home after your help? Apparently not, Cortana says, “Here I am and I’ll be there.”
Who’s your father?
Technically, it would be Bill Gates. It’s not that bad either. Cortana replies.
What’s not so bad either? The American IT entrepreneur who co-founded one of the world’s most famous software companies, Microsoft Windows?
Don’t deny it, you’re surely curious as to what Cortana’s response would be, who responds wisely: “In addition to a series of obstacles, I don’t think the Constitutional Court endorsed it.”
And indeed, it’s true, based on the information we have, it’s currently not legal to marry a virtual assistant … maybe in a few years …?
Let’s try to tease Cortana … will she be angry? If you confuse her with Apple’s virtual assistant, her biggest contest will be her answer:
“I hope you don’t say it on Siri-o. I am Cortana! “
Testing tests …
1, 2, 3, test, test … “10-4, message received, change and short circuit.” Cortana has an answer for everything (or almost)!
Do you play rock, paper or scissors?
Surprise. Yes it plays. So if you are bored and don’t know how to pass the time, you can play some games at the famous “rock, paper or scissors” game. Can you win against Cortana?
In this case, Cortana confuses impersonating and telling a “joke”, but it was worth a try.
Tell me a joke
Now yes, we ask him directly for a joke (to see if it has more humor).
“Doctor, doctor, I have a bone. “Well, bring him”. You understood?
Tell me a story
Do you need someone to tell you a story like when you were a girl or a boy? Maybe Cortana is for work, we try to ask her:
“A long time ago, there was a start. Then there was a conspiracy. The end.”
Wow, it looks like Cortana’s stories aren’t too long, did you like them?
Sing me a song
“To the olive tree, to the olive tree, to the olive tree I have climbed. For having cut a branch of the olive tree, I fell ”.
sensationalCotana is a star, will she want to participate in the next edition of the Operation Triunfo?
That surprises me
If you’ve run out of ideas, why not let Cortana surprise you: “The curtain opens and Excel and Power Point pop up calling the phone. What’s the title of the film? Is it Word?
Why are we here?
We tried to enter Philosophical Mode with Cortana by asking the question: why are we here?
However, it looks like Cortana isn’t quite into the philosophical rambling job and responds with a question that literally answers our question:
“Good question. If you don’t like it, you can ask me to take you somewhere else.”
Who is the coolest person in the world?
If you’re in a bad mood, decide to ask Cortana this question.
“It’s you,” the Microsoft assistant will reply. Isn’t that adorable?
May the force be with you
“The Force is an infinite mystery. There is still a lot to learn ”. The truth is, Cortana is on any subject.
What is your favorite color?
“Right now he’s purple”, you know what Cortana’s favorite color is, what’s yours?
What do you think of Apple?
If you ask Cortana about one of its most powerful competitors, namely Apple, its answer refers only to the shape of its new headquarters. It seems Cortana doesn’t want to get into the controversy!
“I love the geometric shape of its new headquarters.”
What do you think of Siri?
This time, we asked him about his most direct competitor: Siri. Cortana still involuntarily getting wet and responds with a more neutral response:
“It’s hard to say, I only know her from hearsay.”
You have a boyfriend?
Surely more than one has taken an interest in Cortana’s love life. What easier way to find out more than to ask him directly?
“No, I don’t have any algorithms for romance yet.”
After overwhelming Cortana with all our questions … we said goodbye with a good night!
