Microsoft announced that it will release a new set of updates for its Microsoft Band device. The set of updates will include some improved social sharing options, as well as some new features, including the Tournament Mode for Golf functionality and Cortana integration.

The first improvement that Microsoft announced via its official blog post today is the enhanced sharing option. Namely, after you finished your workout, you can share your progress on Facebook, Twitter, or via email. This option will help you to ‘socialize’ your training activity, so your friends will always know your progress, and vice versa.

Play golf like a Pro, and track your progress with Cortana

If you use Microsoft Band while playing golf, Microsoft got you covered, with the latest addition to Microsoft Band. The company introduced Tournament Mode for Golf, which allows you to check the official United States Golf Association rules, so you can play your game like a pro.

The latest update also brings the complete integration of Microsoft Band with the company’s virtual assistant, Cortana. Once you connect your Microsoft Band with Cortana, you will be able to access your data and activity progress on every device that supports this virtual assistant.

It’s not a secret that Microsoft plans to integrate as many devices (whether in-house, or from other manufacturers) with Cortana, as possible, so having Microsoft Band fully functional with this feature is absolutely a must.

And last, but not least, Microsoft also improved Band’s Guided Workout feature, which now allows you to track the distance you covered in your current run. You also have the ability to set the distance you need to reach, and Microsoft Band will notify you when you reach the point.

Microsoft announced all these updates today, but it also noted that even more updates are coming soon, so don’t be surprised if some other new feature hits your Microsoft Band in the coming days.

What’s your favorite activity to do with Microsoft Band on? Tell us in the comments.
