The recent article from Windows Phone Central states that there are updates to Cortana. There also was an article in past from the same site suggesting that Cortana reportedly getting new animations and features with backend update.
From the recent article
The changes to Cortana reportedly include all or a few of the following:
- Asking "What is my name?" and having Cortana speak it back
- Importing of your Stock watch list from Bing Finance
- New animations on the Live Tile, including weather icons
- Cortana will verbally respond to select inquiries (not just chitchat)
- Modified layout of news, including dividers between sections and a smaller font
- New quiz option at the bottom of today view to let Cortana learn a bit more about your personal interests/habits.
- New "Give Cortana Feedback" link at the bottom of Cortana's today view.
Microsoft can dynamically update Cortana because the pages generated are in HTML5, meaning there is no need for a software update on the phone.
Then why am I not able to see these updates? Any idea?
