    Cortana is Microsoft's personal assistant.
    We have the opportunity to change the voice for some settings. Her voice is naturally female, but we can change the voice to male for some third-party applications, as well as for some different situations. To do this, we need first to press the menu button, which is the three horizontal lines at the top right corner of the screen.
