WPDang reports that Microsoft Asia’s Internet Engineering team or working on making the Chinese version of Cortana even more useful by adding Home Automation support.
According to their sources Microsoft is working with a multi-national smart home giant, which suggests we may see the products reach beyond Asia to the rest of the world also.
The technical work is apparently already done, suggesting we may see the results sooner rather than later.
Apparently the work at present only extends to activating lights, but should extend much further eventually.
In USA Microsoft has already hooked up with Insteon, and are selling their products at Microsoft stores there.
