Microsoft Announces New Cortana Skills in Windows 10
We’ve known for a while Cortana has become a second-class citizen in Windows 10, and with Microsoft focusing more on enterprises, this is pretty much the only market the digital assistant would eventually be focused on.
And the most recent Windows 10 preview build brings new capabilities for Cortana in the enterprise, as the assistant can no search for and open files in the cloud.
“Enterprise users who sign into Cortana with their corporate credentials (e.g., AAD) can search for files saved on OneDrive For Business and SharePoint along with files saved locally on their PCs (this setting is at Settings > Search > Searching Windows). Users using a Microsoft account (e.g., ending with Outlook.com or Hotmail.com) can use Cortana to find files saved on their PCs. This feature is currently available to our English-speaking users in U.S.,” Microsoft explains in the release notes of the latest Insider build.
