Microsoft's Cortana is now your personal DJ and cooking assistant

30 May 2016

The digital assistant can now search the entire Groove Music catalog, provided you hold a Groove Music pass subscription, instead of just your local collection. They call it users' personal DJ.

Windows Defender was automatically disabled in the past in Windows 8 and Windows 10, when users installed a third-party antivirus solution, so Microsoft is changing this behavior with the Anniversary Update.

To read the full list of what has been fixed in this build as well as the known issues, make sure to read Gabe's post on the Windows Experience Blog.

Another problem is Cortana's Groove Music support is only available for US English at this time. Previously, Cortana only accessed music stored locally or on OneDrive. Microsoft has added a heavily requested feature to Cortana, the ability to set a timer.

In addition to setting a timer, you can also ask Cortana how much time is left and Cortana will tell you. In PCs, the feature pops up at the top of the lock screen and supports when logged in whereas in the case of phones it could simply work with text or speech feature.

As you can see, Microsoft is making this change not only to Win32 software but also to Windows Store applications, as they're playing an essential role for the future of Windows. Reminders will enter themselves into Cortana, and email addresses will trigger your email app. According to Microsoft's Gabe Aul of the Engineering Systems Team, the compass indicator will become bold when the ruler is oriented in the direction of any of the cardinal points or midpoints. Game Bar can be activated in these full-screen games by hitting the Windows key and "G" simultaneously.

Also, keep in mind that while we're getting closer to the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to the public, this is still a preview or beta release. Based on Insider feedback, we have updated the File Explorer icon with more color. With Build 14352, you can do both.

Of course, Microsoft may delay the release of the build if they find any bug before Tuesday. Additional fixes in Build 14352 were provided to the Action Center, the Movies & TV app, Windows Hello, the Command Prompt, and loads more.
