What is Cortana voice assistant in Teams?

Generally, Cortana is a voice-enabled virtual assistant developed by Microsoft to help Windows 10 users to initiate requests, complete tasks and anticipate future needs – internally it uses the Bing search engine to perform these tasks such as setting reminders and answering questions for the user.

Recently Microsoft has announced that this Cortana voice assistant tool will be integrated with Microsoft Teams which will allow users to translate the team message into their native language and also to perform communication, collaboration, and meeting-related tasks by speaking the natural language. This integration with Cortana’s voice assistance could give Microsoft an edge in its battle with Slack, given the increasing importance of voice-based computing in the workplace and within business productivity applications.
