Just one day after photos of Microsoft’s Cortana came to light, a hands-on video of the company’s upcoming voice-controlled personal assistant  has arrived.

This allegedly legitimate video appears to show Microsoft’s description of Cortana, which calls the service “a personal assistant on your phone, ready to help with reminders, suggestions, tasks, and lots more.”

The process of setting up Cortana for the first time is shown in the embedded video below:

Unfortunately, the video does not reveal Cortana’s voice, nor does it show the assistant’s language processing abilities.

Widespread rumors predict that Microsoft will unveil Cortana alongside Windows Phone 8.1 at Microsoft’s upcoming Build conference in April.
