We’ve seen plenty of fakes, but if we trust Tom Warren, who says he never posts fake stuff, we are looking at the first real pictures of what the Cortana avatar will look like on Windows Phone 8.1.
Form the Verge earlier we learned:
“The personality of Cortana is currently represented by a circle graphic that expresses what it’s doing (searching, identifying music à la the current Bing music listener built into Windows Phone, etc.) by various animations like spinning, flipping, etc. …more animations [have] come in over time, and the color is based on your theme color.”
Tom Warren posted today that the circle is fully animated, and we know already that Cortana can have a variety of emotions, and it will be interesting to see how this spinning circle represents them.
Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to be fully announced in April at the BUILD 2014 conference, making it around 30 days before everything will be officially revealed.
Thanks Cortana for the tip.
