    How to Connect or Disconnect Cortana to Gmail Account in Windows 10


    This tutorial is no longer valid starting with Windows 10 version 2004.


    Cortana is your cloud-based personal assistant that works across your devices and other Microsoft services. Depending on the capabilities of your device and the version of Cortana you’re using, Cortana can provide a range of features, some of which are personalized. Cortana on Windows is available in certain regions and languages. If Cortana isn’t available for your Windows device, you can still search for files on your device in the search box on the taskbar. Cortana is also available on other platforms, such as Android and iOS, in select markets.

    Cortana works best when you sign in and let her use data from your device, other Microsoft services, and third-party services you choose to connect. To provide you with personalized experiences, Cortana learns from certain data about you, such as your searches, calendar, contacts, and location. You’re in control of how much data you share. If you choose not to sign into Cortana on Windows, you can still chat with Cortana and use her to help you search the web, documents stored in Microsoft services like OneDrive, and your Windows device. See the section about Windows Search in the Privacy Statement for more information. If you don’t sign in, or you choose to sign out, your experiences will be more limited and they won’t be personalized with your Cortana data. On iOS and Android devices, Cortana only works when you sign in.

    Cortana can provide you more value and personalized experiences when your accounts and services are connected.

    Microsoft has added the ability to connect your Gmail account from Google to Cortana. Like with other connected services, connecting your Gmail account will allow you to use Cortana to access information like your contacts, calendar details, and email content from Gmail to give you personalized experiences and relevant suggestions in Microsoft products that offer Cortana experiences.
