Microsoft unveils new Cortana AI technology for its 365 mobile apps


Microsoft will also update Teams (followed by Outlook and Office) with support for natural language queries in English in the United States. You can also use search using text or Cortana to find messages, chats, meetings, and more. The app also adds a video content collaboration feature, allowing users to contribute and create a smart scan from Microsoft Lens (formerly Office Lens).

Lens also acquires the ability to recognize English handwriting and text, first in the Lens app and then in Office Mobile. This will allow you to “transcribe handwritten notes into text just to add them to your documents,” Microsoft said.

Finally, Microsoft is introducing “micro-task shortcuts”. These will allow you to create quick forms or surveys in Office or Teams, plan your time with daily weather forecast, tap to link to a website from an Outlook mobile email with an integrated Bing web view, use the Microsoft’s To Do widget and more.
