Yesterday, Microsoft released yet-another build from the Redstone 4 release branch. There's more changes in this build as well; read on to see what has changed.
This build has some major new Cortana improvements - a new profile page and a bunch of new features. Here's Microsoft's take on it:
A new profile page! We’re introducing a new server-powered profile page in Cortana for you to add and edit your favorite places. The places you add are used to give you traffic updates for your daily commute, and let you easily set reminders when you arrive or leave your places. To get to this page, head to the Notebook section of Cortana and click the button to the right of your name. This is available for all Cortana markets*.
This will soon extend beyond places to cover your Interests, Family, Accounts and more. Stay tuned for updates!
Cortana’s new Notebook goes international with improved performance: We’ve received some great feedback about our updated Notebook design announced with Build 17063, and are happy to share that this new design is now available for all markets* and languages where Cortana is supported. In addition several performance improvements have been deployed that should make Notebook load faster. Note, some experiences may vary depending on the market you are in.
Learn to use a Skill in Notebook: Default Skills in Cortana’s Notebook (like Weather, Sports, and News) now come with a set of tips for questions you can ask Cortana to get you started – either click the suggestion, type it out yourself, or just talk to Cortana and she’ll pull up the information you requested.
Starting today, these changes will be rolling out to all Insiders in supported markets who are on RS4 and RS5 builds. We’d love to here your feedback – click here to open Feedback Hub and send us feedback on your experience with Cortana. In case you missed it, here’s a summary of some of the recent changes we’ve made based on what you’ve told us, including email search and more!
