Skype to get HoloLens, Cortana support
31 March 2016 Current Affairs GK: Microsoft isnt just content to work on a universal Skype app -- it has much bigger plans in store. Its developing a version of Skype for HoloLens that, as youd expect, lets you chat and collaborate with friends using the augmented reality headset. Its exact functionality isnt clear yet, but the allure is clear: you can hold a hands-free video chat while youre walking around the room. Needless to say, thats helpful if youre working on a group project or have your hands full with other tasks. Dont worry if you cant drop $3,000 on a HoloLens unit to try it out, though, as theres plenty coming for regular users.The team is bringing artificial intelligence to Skype in a big way. Youll have access to the Cortana personal assistant on Android, iOS and Windows, to begin with. Its much like Facebooks M and other conversational helpers: you can ask her to send directions, order food, or even connect to other bots (such as, say, customer service). Support for chat bots is being woven into Skype itself, on that note, so companies can serve you through AI messaging when its convenient. You should have access to bots in Skype today, and theres a bot developer kit to help programmers get started.
