Tech giant Microsoft has released a beta version of the updated Cortana app for Windows 10.

The company is testing a new chat-based UI for Cortana on Windows 10 PCs. The new beta app, which was originally spotted last month, is now available to testers, and it supports text and voice queries, The Verge reported on Friday.

These new updates come just days after Microsoft announced it is changing the look of the Xbox One’s Home screen and how one can control the console via Cortana.

In addition to most of the existing Cortana features, the app also supports light and dark themes in Windows, a less intrusive screen for “Hey Cortana” queries, new speech and language models, and better performance.
