  1. Advanced Cortana

    , E. G. ' play Taylor Swift ' (Cortana chooses the default music app Spotify and plays Taylor Swift music :)

    Cortana could even play specific songs E. G. 'play All Too Well '

    You tell Cortana (in her settings) under music settings, that Spotify is my default music app, so whatever command you give it in terms of music wise, it opens Spotify or it could open up your default music player E. G
    Samsung Music

            • Integrate cortana with Microsoft Edge for Android.

              I can use "hey cortana" while Edge is open. I can tell cortana to add pages to favorites, have her open favorites, have her read pages to me, have her email or text links to websites.

              • Cortana functionality limited to home screen and not to lock screen and display over other apps.

                Cortana should be able to display over other apps. If you it is only limited to the home screen. Even to unlock the phone and download apps from the apps store. I like it so far. I it understands me more than Bixby. A little more work on this and cortana will be the best assistant out.

                • Cortana in french (Cortana en Français)

                  French language is supported on Windows 10 already. It means it would be easy to add it on phone.

                  Le français est déjà supporté sur Windows 10 donc ce serait pas difficile de l'intégrer sur téléphones.

                  • "Hey Cortana!"

                    You can use a command like "Hey Cortana" to activate the built in Cortana assistant, similar to Microsoft's Cortana app.

                        I would like to see cortana with the ability to respond on my android phone just add she does in Windows. Google does, but cortana doesn't.

                              • add back cortana reminders to sync with the Launcher again and possibly the other cortana lists? And also keep the To-Do integration going.

                                Please add back the cortana task card as soon as possible and further cortana integration. Full navigation of the OS. I should be able to ask cortana to open a specific word document.

                                        I still neef to use ok google because Cortana is not able to controll screen brightnes, noise level, gps, mobile data, wifi and bluetooth.

                                        Cortana opens the contact's info instead of calling him when saying " call Tim on mobile".
