Windows 10: Spartan and Cortana shine in video

Spartan and Cortana prepare us a good little concert dish (and not canned).

The site WinBeta just released a small video in which we can see Spartan at work. And he’s not alone, since in the sequence in question, Cortana gives it a hand and shows the full potential of the new browser.

Spartan is, remember, the new browser from Microsoft. It will be integrated into Windows 10 for PC, Windows 10 for Phones (ex-Windows Phone), and even for Xbox consoles. Cortana, for its part, is a voice assistant, which appeared for the first time under Windows Phone 8.1, and which will also be integrated into the different versions of Windows 10. If you want to see what the two tools working together give, take a look at the video above. The browser displays on the right side a large pane, which is dedicated to Cortana. By consulting a web page, you just have to click on a word so that information about the word in question appears: a definition, a geolocation, recipes, consumer reviews, the weather, etc. Cortana guides you through your surfing and all this, without leaving the browser.

Spartan will be integrated into the next Windows 10 preview, as announced a few weeks ago. No availability date for this beta has yet been announced, but Microsoft may well release it in the coming days.
