Microsoft showcased several awesome features and changes to Windows 10 at their last consumer event. One of them was Cortana, the company’s upcoming virtual assistant for Windows 10 running on PCs and laptops. Cortana received several upgrades this time around. Not only do these include the ability to check your schedules, flights, and weather, but now with Cortana, you’ll also be able to access your photo libraries, PowerPoint presentations, and other documents, just through voice commands.
Additionally, Cortana will now also be able to access apps and your music library simply, again, with voice commands. You can also verbally dictate emails to Cortana, who will compose them and send them to the desired recipient. Additionally, you also get a brand new Start menu and a new Settings app in this version, alongside others. So if you want to see how Cortana works and how well the Xbox One app Microsoft also showcased in January, go ahead and download the latest version 9926 of Windows 10 Technical Preview from here.
Things should be relatively smooth from now on for advanced Windows 10 users. But for those who are installing Microsoft’s Tech Preview for the first time, there are a few steps you will need to take first. All you need to do is register for the Windows Insider program on Microsoft’s website and download the specific ISO to your PC or laptop. You will then need to create a bootable USB drive or burn the file to DVD and boot your computer with that USB / DVD drive. And There you go ! You have now successfully experienced Cortana. If only Microsoft had included Spartan in this release as well. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
