Cortana reads notifications

Sense I'm using my WP any new SMS I receive Cortana ( as I think) says you got new message , and if I open it, she read the message for me.

Will I hope Cortana came to the X-1, and any new messages or achievement unlock or received invite from friend or any thing else that could be read Cortana says it. In the end its better to hear it.

[Mod edit: Title changed from "better to hear it - Cortana read notifications on mobile."

    Once Cortana goes live, there should be a command that has her read or play voice messages over the game you are currently playing, on the fly, so you dont have to leave the game to check in a snapped app. Or something similar.

    For instance a few examples Cortana could say is

    you have a friend who is online
    you just won your first race you have twenty gamerscore,
    you have just received a party /game invite
    you are in apps
    you are in settings etc

    That would be awesome, I think this might be in the wrong category though. "Apps" or "Gaming & Achievements" might be a better fit, maybe "Friends, Parties, Profile, & Activity Feed."

    Anyway, totally awesome idea. I play a bit more competitively and don't always have time to read messages. Sometimes I even end up ignoring messages from my superiors and game admin because I don't have time during a firefight to check who the messages are from, let-alone actually read them. Having that kind of TtS feature would certainly fix that, well, as long as I'm able to hear it.
