Cortana helper and a new Cortana bot is now available in the Skype Preview. With the Cortana Bot, Cortana will appear in the user’s contacts list, allowing the user to chat with the bot and complete weather, navigation, and other tasks.

The report indicated that Cortana can be added to any conversation by pressing the “+” button and scrolling to the left. Users can also find and chat directly with the Cortana bot by searching in the bot directory for “Cortana.”

“Cortana is brokering the conversation with a third-party bot, we will also be bringing intelligence into real-time video” says Lilian Rincon, Skype’s program manager during Microsoft Build conference.
