Cortana Now Gets You Straight Back to Work When Switching Devices

Late on Thursday, Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar announced a Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15007 for PC and Mobile was set to deliver to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring.

There’s a slew of new features in this release (full information HERE), including some Microsoft Edge improvements like tab sharing across devices, Web Notes enhancements, and other browser imports. But, one of the latest features for Cortana should prove useful for business users and consumers alike…

Cortana can help you pick up where you left off (PC): If you have multiple PCs, you probably know how cumbersome it can be to find everything you need to resume work after switching between PCs. Cortana can now help with that! When you switch computers, Cortana will display quick links in the Action Center to help you easily get back into the Microsoft Edge websites and SharePoint (or other cloud-based) documents you used most recently. For example, if you were working on a PowerPoint deck on your laptop, when you later return to your desktop, a link to that deck appears in Action Center. Or perhaps you’re browsing recipes in Microsoft Edge on your PC downstairs, and grab your laptop to go bake up a storm in the kitchen—Cortana will be there for you and have a link to that recipe ready to go. In adding this feature, we’ve also updated Cortana to take advantage of notification grouping, described earlier, so you can more easily differentiate between the types of messages.
