The speaker will be powered and controlled by Microsoft’s popular AI assistant, Cortana, that was introduced in the Windows 10 operating system. The command will be Hey Cortana! The speaker is also expected to work with third party services.

Earlier this month, Microsoft announced Cortana Skills Kit and SDK for developers to build Cortana-enabled skills for the speaker.
