    Cortana Skill Update: Helping you keep track of your to-do list


    The Holiday season is coming, which means itís list making season and Cortana has a new list skill* to help you out. With the new list skill, Cortana can now easily and conveniently help you manage your lists and keep track of the things you need to do so you donít have to.



    Whether itís planning a holiday meal, buying gifts, getting things done before you head out for vacation, or keeping track of whoís naughty or nice, you can use your voice or type to quickly create a new list, add to an existing list when inspiration strikes, and pull up your lists just when you need them on any device. Cortana will automatically start a Grocery, To Do and Shopping list for you so itís easy to get started. The list skill will also be available through Cortana on your mobile phone**.

    For deeper lists functionality, Cortana can also work with Wunderlist, one of the most loved list-making apps, to give you even more ways to make lists and stay organized. You can connect Cortana to your Wunderlist account or set up a new account for greater functionality and access to the lists you already have if youíre a current Wunderlist user. Connecting to Wunderlist gives you the ability to add due dates to your To Dos and create shared lists from the Wunderlist app.

    Check it out for yourself by saying ďHey Cortana, create a Holiday listĒ. The list skill is just one of the ways that Cortana remembers, so you donít have to. Weíre always adding new Cortana skills so keep checking back at the Windows Blog for the latest.

    *Available in English in US only
    ** Cortana only available with Android 4.4 or later, iPhones with iOS 8.0 or later and Windows 10 in the US.

    This build (14971) has messed up Cortana for me. She no longer responds to "hey Cortana" or the mic symbol at all

    She came back to me and all is forgiven
    (just another case of a working driver displaced by one that doesn't - my Lenovo Yoga 13 seems especially vulnerable to this - generic mic driver works. No problems on my old HP desktop - since the Q-33 chipset display driver problem fixed)

    On my computers Cortana has been banished (Registry entry to disable it). Peace again.

    Sounds a good feature, just a shame it is US only

    Cant think why creating a list should be restricted to one country
