SummaryMicrosoft Corporation's Cortana is among new features coming to Windows Phone update called 8.1.

include more seamless transitions between newer, tile-based apps and those using the traditional desktop-style interface. The taskbar at the bottom of the screen in the desktop mode will now let people pin any app as a favorite, not just those designed for the desktop mode. Microsoft is also restoring a bar at the top of apps to make it easier to close and minimize apps.

The company hinted at future updates, including the ability to run tile-based apps within windows that can overlap and be adjusted to any size. That had long been the way Windows worked. But starting with Windows 8, people were limited to adjusting how much horizontal space those apps take. Microsoft didn't say when such an update will come.
