  1. Integrate Cortana with apps I want

    Cortana should be integrated with more settings options and apps.
    I should have the control with which app to integrate (e.g., with mail, massaging but not with password keeper).
    Long pressing search button within an app should launch cortana
    to take commands for the app , read mail, text document, play/pause song/video.

      • Cortana in office

        It would be great if Cortana had access to Microsoft Office commands. For instance, if you want to check you spelling and grammar, instead of trying to find where the button for that was again, just ask Cortana to help out and she could do it for you. The commands are already there, if only Cortana could make use of them would be really cool!

        • Call me a cap when I'm drunk

          For example, when I drunk, I can think that Cortana is a real person and tell her that I'm drunk ( happened all the time ). She will then call me a cap ( or Uber or something ...) to send me home. I can do that with Siri but somehow I can't do that with Cortana. I will be great if Cortana can do that.

          • selfie

            Cortana can take selfie. For example:
            User: Hey Cortana, take a selfie.
            Cortana: Ready, smile.
            This was the basic idea. The idea that is truly amazing is:
            User: Hey Cortana, how do I look?
            Cortana: You look great.(or) You look a bit tired.
            Cortana will do this by taking a photo of user and using Microsoft's face detection algorithms. She will compare the photo that she has just took with the other one that she has already in her storage. Well, why do we want Cortana to has got this ability? Because this will make her more talented and real…

              • *** integration of cortana with skype translator ***

                mix/integrate the skype translator functionality with cortana; thus you could have an english cortana that can understand other languages (my maternal language is dutch but I would still prefer an english cortana on my dutch devices; btw. cortana currently is only available for us if we choose to set our devices to e.g. us english); this would also imply that lesser cortana languages would need to be released! ;-)

                  • Hey Cortana! Let's go for a run!

                    Me: Hey Cortana! Let's go for a run!
                    Cortana: Ok. I will set that up for you. Ready. Set. Go!

                    Have Cortana integrate directly with the activity tracking in the Microsoft Band.

                    • Unlimited Inner Circle

                      I do not understand why you can only add 40 people in your inner circle. It would be nice to have unlimited contacts or have Cortana use your phone contacts to call, text, email, etc... Limiting the circle is a hassle when it tells you that you are too popular and that you have to remove a contact before adding another contact.

                      • Cortana should be able to access dual sim call commmand

                        Phones with dual sim, Cortana should have the command of e.g call bill gates on SIM1 or call Satya Nadella on SIM 2 not just her selecting network for you. It would be a great feature.

                        • Hey Cortana! Is there any unread text messages?

                          Hey Cortana! Is there any unread text messages?
                          Cortana should handle this request and read the unread message(s). Even unread emails and other notifications left over.

                          • Cortana's Remind Me and Calendar's Tasks should be integrated.

                            Cortana's Remind Me and Calendar's Tasks should be integrated. Tasks are neglected in the WP platform. Reminders are separate and you can access them only through Cortana's notebook. Tasks are accessible only through Calendar. INtegration of these two will be a great help in time management.

                              • To Do List

                                Like TaskCrunch or Wunderlist, but with ability to tell Cortana what tasks you wish to do and get auto verbal reminders of tasks.
                                Featuring all the usual (awesome) context triggers.

                                Should be able to ask about coming tasks, change on-the-fly, and set tasks to repeat daily.

                                If this is already coming to Windows 10 desktop, please let WP users get it sooner than later. Cortana was a big motivator to get me to switch. Thank you!

                                  • link to Health and know my workout details

                                    I would like to use Cortana to ask how many calories I burned today, what I ate as entered in Health, it should also be able to tell me how much further I have to go to meet my fitness goals, or how many calories I have left, and use Cortana to start workouts by voice command, add a food to my diet ("Cortana, add a Kale salad to my lunch in Health")

                                      • better integration with Band

                                        Cortland should be able to answer factual questions on the Band's display without launching on the phone, if my query was launched from the Band. I ask 'what time is it?' and my phone turns on, to a web search. I was expecting a simple answer. "who was the last president of the united states?" should be a simple answer at any given point in time. I'd like more factual answers to be simply displayed on the Band, rather than opening a web search on the phone.

                                        • Add "Expert Mode" with limited Prompts

                                          Add Cortana "Expert Mode" with limited Prompts.

                                          Cortana is great, but I've noticed that her prompting in reading or responding to text messages could use a mode where you don't need to be told your options. This could be auto-enabled after a time, or user selectable. Example:

                                          Cortana: Message from John Smith.
                                          Me: Read It.
                                          Cortana: The message Says: The meeting is at nine tomorrow morning.
                                          Me: Reply
                                          Cortana: Ok. What is your message?
                                          Me: I'll be there at nine.
                                          Cortana: Ok. I got: I'll be there at nine.
                                          Me: Send it.
                                          Cortana: Ok. Message Sent.

                                          But you might be…
