Microsoft is showcasing a new virtual assistant as part of an upcoming update for Windows phones.

The assistant, named Cortana, tries to be chatty like Siri on Apple's iPhones and iPads, while anticipating information you might want, like Google Now on Android devices.

Cortana is one of the new features coming to a Windows Phone update called 8.1.

Microsoft says the feature is still in a "beta" test mode as the company tries to improve its voice recognition capabilities.
