    Closing Cortana with a voice command


    Hi! I would like to ask someone more informed than me, or members of the insider program, if there are plans or rumors about adding this feature to Cortana: ability to close her with a voice command. Something like "Thank you" or "See ya" would be very nice and useful!!!

    The correct phrase would be: "Hey Cortana, close Cortana"

    Alternatively, you could say "Hey Cortana...", if she listens but doesn't receive a command within a few seconds, she will close automatically.

    Or, you can press the Windows Key rapidly twice.

    Edwin, thank you for the suggestion of double pressing the Windows key, I will use this because is more practical than reach the "X" button. I hope Microsoft will add a proper command for closing Cortana after she has completed a task.
