Microsoft has been working hard to integrate some great Cortana features  into Skype in order to provide some great features like that option to chat with a business bot from your local pizzeria, for instance. So, the idea of ordering Pizza Hut right from within Skype while chatting with your loved ones might soon become a reality.

With these improved features, users will be able to interact with Cortana using a chat-like interface to get their tasks and day to day tasks done, making Cortana more functional in the long run. When it comes to being able to chat with business bots, Cortana will automatically be able to detect a service that might be relevant through the context of a Skype chat so you could quickly speak to the bot to do what you want.

Companies like Facebook have been trying to do the same thing with services like Facebook Messenger but until now, only Microsoft has been able to show a functional prototype of such service. In the future, developers will be able to add multimedia bots which will respond to queries in real time. Bots will be launching in an update today itself but Microsoft hasn’t announced which bots will be made available initially.
