Hacker News article The Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile app and Cortana are now out of synch with each another, according to a post by a Microsoft spokesperson.
Cortana has been a big hit on the Windows Store with users buying over a million apps over the last few months, with the first Cortana apps hitting the Windows Phone Store in August.
Cortana is a new personal assistant built in to the Windows 10 operating system, and Microsoft is hoping that Cortana will become more useful in a future Windows 10 update.
Microsoft said in a blog post that it is working with developers to address Cortana’s lack of functionality.
Cortana can’t search or respond to voice commands and can’t perform any other common tasks.
Cortana’s default search query is: “Ask Cortana to help me,” which is not an error message.
Cortana won’t even respond to a simple question or ask a question about a new feature.
Cortana cannot add Cortana-related items to your search bar or send an SMS message, nor can it send a link or a photo to Cortana.
Cortana will still be able to use Cortana to do things like get directions or send text messages to you, but it won’t be able send you a reminder.
Cortana does not have a desktop or phone app.
Microsoft also announced in a post that Cortana on Windows 10 will be able “to detect your Cortana-enabled device, identify the devices that are currently connected to your PC, and provide you with relevant information for those devices.
This is also the first time Cortana will be capable of accessing your personal information stored on your Windows 10 device.”
Microsoft has also announced that Cortana for Windows 10 is coming in a few weeks, and that the Windows Central app for Cortana will arrive with the app sometime in December.
Cortana and Cortana-powered Windows 10 PCs are also coming soon to other platforms, including Macs, Windows tablets, and Android tablets.
The company is also releasing a Windows 10 IoT (Internet of Things) service, Cortana for IoT, to allow Cortana to connect to devices running Microsoft’s Cortana IoT service.
Cortana for Android and Windows 10 Android devices will also be getting Cortana support in the coming months, although no official announcement has been made about that.
