As we already know, Cortana is like your personal digital assistant, that helps you get things done, by learning more about you every day. Cortana helps you be more productive by completing basic tasks like sending emails, scheduling events, and using the power of Bing to quickly search your devices, the cloud, or the web. Cortana’s also the best at reminders, delivering them at the right time and place so you forget less and can do more.

The beta version of the app offers voice-powered assistance, plus help with managing your schedule, reminders, and alarms, as well as the ability to track things like flights, packages, stocks, scores and more.

Known Issues:

  • Don’t support people based reminder
