In the interview, it was revealed that Windows Phone has voice control, with simple commands like "text Mom" and Bing searches, where its had this magical ability for a year now, wow!

 

Mundie said:

 

People are infatuated with Apple announcing it. It's good marketing, but at least as the technological capability you could argue that Microsoft has had a similar capability in Windows Phones for more than a year, since Windows Phone 7 was introduced.
