Cortana is a cloud-based personal assistant that works across your devices and Microsoft services. You can use Cortana in Skype to set reminders or find information such as restaurant or movie times. Cortana in Skype also makes helpful suggestions in your Skype conversations. Currently Cortana is being rolled out gradually with the new Skype on Mobile in the United States. Cortana works best when you give her permission to sign you in and use data from Skype such as location and IM conversations to personalize Cortana experiences in Skype and across any device or service in which you have enabled Cortana. For more information about how Cortana uses data, visit our site Cortana and privacy. You’ll be signed in to Cortana with the same Microsoft Account you use to sign in to Skype. If you choose not to give permission, Cortana will still provide you with non-personalized replies and suggestions. Cortana will only use your information to provide replies and suggestions within Skype.
You are in control of the data you share and we want to make sure it’s the right choice for you. To opt out of personalized Cortana experiences and sign out of Cortana:
Note: If you turn off personalization you won’t be able to chat with Cortana. To turn off non-personalized suggestions:
Note: If you haven't updated your Skype account to a Microsoft account, you'll be taken through the process in order to enable Cortana. Learn more.
In a chat conversation, you’ll see suggestions such as smart replies, emoticons or tools such as GIFs, weather, movies or restaurants. Just tap the suggestion to send a reply or find and share content. If Cortana's suggestions aren't helpful, you can tap the menu beside the suggestions to send feedback. If you haven’t given permission for Cortana to sign you in then some suggestions, such as Create Reminder, will prompt you to give permission to sign in and use your location and IM conversations.
When you delete the chat all the messages in the conversation will be deleted and it will no longer show on your Chat screen. The chat will be deleted from the new Skype on that specific device, but will still be visible on other devices unless you delete it from there too.
No, currently Cortana only works in chat.
