After Microsoft announced that it will bring Cortana to Android as well as iOS, there was huge enthusiasm among Windows fans as well as technology enthusiasts, but looks like Microsoft has more tricks up its sleeve. Now, one more upcoming app from Microsoft has leaked that seems like a variant of Cortana, which is personalised to be used at work environments.

The app, which is called Microsoft Office Now, is focussed in helping users organise their time and provide relevant information to the objective a user is trying to accomplish. Similar to Google Now and Cortana, the app will constantly show cards with relevant information such as daily tasks, commute related information, missed call alerts, in-depth people insights, natural language event creation, email cards, and several other things.

You might wonder as to how this is different from Cortana. Well, with Cortana, you ask Cortana for some information, and wait for the results to show up. With Office Now, relevant information will automatically be delivered to you, similar to Google Now.
