Cortana’s main purpose as a virtual assistant is to make our life easier, by performing various tasks we ‘ask’ for. It already features a lot of options, and can do a lot of actions, but Microsoft tends to make Cortana the best virtual assistant on the market, so it continuously brings new options.

After making Cortana available to a higher variety of users, by introducing new languages in the most recent Windows 10 Preview build 14279, Microsoft also introduced a new option to its virtual assistant. Cortana is now available to set a new kind of reminders for you, all you have to do is to say “remind me to watch the Lakers game,” or “remind me to watch the Revenant,” and Cortana will store that reminder for you.

You can also make a reminder more specific, by adding details like location, time, and people, so Cortana can assist you the best way possible. You can set a reminder without a due-date, as well. Setting up reminders with Cortana is definitely not a new option, as this was one of Cortana’s very first abilities, but the most recent update certainly makes it more advanced.

Although Microsoft didn’t say anything about the cross-compatibility of this feature, we assume that you’ll be able to set a reminder on one Windows 10-powered device, and get a notification about it on another, since Microsoft is putting a lot of efforts to Improve Cortana’s sync options.

You can already do a lot of things with Cortana, so if you want to find out some more commands and abilities of Microsoft’s virtual assistant, check out this article.

Since the Redstone update is still in its early developing phase, and Microsoft promised to improve Cortana with the update, we should expect even more useful abilities to arrive in the coming Redstone builds for Windows 10 Preview.
