Download Microsoft Cortana App for Windows PC (8, 8.1, 10)
Cortana is your personal digital assistant on the go. Everywhere with you across all your devices. Introduced in Windows Phone 8.1, Cortana was designed to support you and help you get things done. Cortana can be there for you across all your Microsoft devices, including Windows 8, 8.1, 10 PC, tablet, and Windows mobile phone. Cortana is like a real-life personal assistant who has worked for you for years. She’s always at the ready, slipping in and out of the picture to bring you exactly what you need, without disturbing the conversation.
She gets to know you over time, using that information to help you get things done and becoming increasingly useful every day. Cortana even adapts her behavior to the device you’re using; when you’re on your phone, interaction will generally be brief. And when you’re on your PC, Cortana helps deliver steady periods of productivity. Of course, you’re always in control of what she knows and what she manages on your behalf. Get notified and send a quick text reply from your Windows PC if you miss a call on your mobile phone.
Cortana works great when it knows much about you and your daily activities by using information and data from your PC or mobile phone, your Microsoft account and other services. It collects and uses your data to gives you personalized user experiences and useful suggestions, like favorite music track, your location, calendar, whether report, alarm, the application you use, important data from your mails, call records, contacts and whom you often interact with. Microsoft Cortana personal assistant app is only compatible with Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 PC. It does not support the previous Microsoft operating system including Windows 7, Vista and XP.

Full Features of Microsoft Cortana App for Windows 8, 8.1, 10 PC:
Location: Cortana regularly collects and uses your current location, location history, and other location signals (such as locations tagged on photos you upload to OneDrive). This location data is used to give you the most relevant notices and results and to make suggestions that help save you time, such as traffic and location based reminders. Cortana can only work if location services are on, so if you turn them off, Cortana will be disabled.
Text Messages and Email: Cortana personal assistant accesses your messages to do a variety of things such as: allowing you to add events to your calendar, apprising you of important messages, and keeping you up to date on events or other things that are important to you, like package or flight tracking. Cortana also uses your messages to help you with planning around your events and offers other helpful suggestions and recommendations.
Communications History: Cortana personal assistant learns who is most important to you from your call, text message, and email history. This is used to keep track of people most relevant to you and your preferred methods of communication, flag important messages for you and improve other Cortana services such as speech recognition.
Speech and Input Personalization: To help Cortana better understand the way you speak and your voice commands, speech data is sent to Microsoft to build personalized speech models and improve speech recognition and user intent understanding. On Windows devices, Cortana can only work if Input Personalization is on, so if you turn it off, Cortana will be disabled.
Microsoft Apps and Services: Cortana uses data collected through other Microsoft services to provide personalized suggestions. For example, Cortana uses data collected by the MSN Sports app so it can automatically display information about the teams you follow. It also learns your favorite places from Microsoft’s Maps app so it can offer better suggestions. Your interests in Cortana’s Notebook can be used by other Microsoft services, such as Bing or MSN, to customize your interests, preferences, and favorites in those experiences as well.
Third-party Services: Cortana personal assistant also allows you to connect to third-party services for additional personalized experiences based upon data from the third-party service. For example, choosing to sign into Facebook or LinkedIn within Cortana allows Microsoft to access certain Facebook or LinkedIn data so that Cortana and Bing can give you more personalized recommendations. You can manage Cortana’s connections to third-party services in the Cortana Notebook.
Browsing History: If you choose to send your full browsing history to Microsoft in Microsoft Edge, Cortana can provide suggestions based on the sites you visit in Microsoft Edge. Cortana won’t collect information about sites you visit in InPrivate tabs.
Search History: Your Bing search queries – even if Cortana does the searching for you – are treated like any other Bing search queries and are used as described in the Bing section.
Note: This app does not support Windows XP, Vista and 7 PC.
