Microsoft is working hard to make Cortana the most personal and the best functionating virtual assistant in the market, and this move will bring even more functionality to Microsoft’s ‘pet.’

During Lenovo Tech World yesterday in Bejing, Microsoft and Lenovo have agreed a deal to improve Microsoft’s Cortana with Lenovo’s  new technology called “REACHit.” This Lenovo’s innovation offers “a much larger inventory of information to search, opening up an entirely new level of contextual search and giving users the most comprehensive, seamless and natural way to find their personal digital content.”

Cortana and REACHit are actually two different apps, but they’re perfectly functioning together. You probably already know what you can do with Cortana, you can search the web, the local content, set reminders, etc. And REACHit allows you to connect and search multiple search locations. When you combine these two apps, you get a powerful searching tool which will find you any content in any storage location connected to Lenovo’s app.

Here is the complete list of all REACHit features that will make your Cortana even better:

  •  Allows users to search for photos, videos, music and text documents on cloud storage services, including Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive.
  • Gives users the ability to add location to searches, cross-referencing the file event with the location data to produce the most relevant results.
  • Cortana and REACHit will work on all Lenovo PCs and tablets running Windows 10.
  • This collaboration between Microsoft and Lenovo will bring a big improvement to Cortana’s search experience.
  • The most natural search – Search the web and local content as you would normally speak it, just like you would speak to a real person.
  • Contextual awareness enables you to search in ways you never thought possible.

REACHit will become available as a beta when Microsoft release Windows 10 this summer. The full version of the app will also be available for download in the fall, and will be an exclusive for all Lenovo PCs and tablets running Windows 10.

You can request an invite to REACHit beta program here.
