New Cortana – Beta shows up on the Microsoft Store

As you may remember, Windows 10 Build 18922 includes a new, hidden version of Cortana. It looks like the app will become available to the public soon. A new Cortana - Beta shows up on the Microsoft Store.

Cortana is a virtual assistant bundled with Windows 10. Cortana appears as a search box or an icon on the taskbar and comes with tight integration with the Search feature in Windows 10. Signing in to Cortana with your Microsoft account allows it to keep track of what interests you, save your favorite places to its Notebook, collect notifications from other devices, and sync your data between all your devices with Cortana enabled.

Here are the screenshots of the new user interface of Cortana:

In build 18922, the new Cortana can be launched separately from the current version of the digital assistant.

The Cortana - Beta app, when installed, doesn't appear as a different software in the Start menu. It doesn't add a new shortcut, it utilizes the default link. When you click on it, it just displays the message "Hi, thanks for taking an interest!". This must change soon, since it is a work in progress.

By placing Cortana in the Store, Microsoft will be able to update it more frequently. Also, this can potentially give the end user the ability to install Cortana like any other Store app. Check out the app page on the Store here:
