  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

  2. Cortana conversation mode

    Cortana on Launcher is not up to par with the Cortana app, especially in regards to conversation mode. The two need to be integrated or have a similar experience.

  5. Improve Cortana's "conversation"

    Cortana does not understand context and does not listen for follow up questions. For example : "how tall is Barack Obama " then asking Cortana "how old is he" and not getting an answer for the second question.

  7. Cortana should be able to start talking by itself when there is an incoming message and when connected to Bluetooth.

    When I am driving, my phone is always connected to the same Bluetooth device, and when I have incoming messages while connected to this device, Cortana should tell me this and ask if the message should be read aloud or if I want to ignore the text, as she did on Windows Phone.

  10. Cortana multiple Office 365 accounts

    Cortana and the launcher need to be able to retrieve appointments from multiple O365 accounts. I use a private O365 account and a professional O365 account, but can't use both. That is a big drawback!

  11. Cortana location based tasks

    With Integration of ToDo, I can't ask Cortana in Ms Launcher to remind me of something when I get somewhere (location-aware reminders) . It only creates basing ToDo tasks and expects me to get date and time for the reminder. Standalone Cortana app easily create such reminders as well as Cortana on a desktop.

  14. Cortana screen robo calls

    Cortana screen all calls against contact library. If number not in contact libraries cortana should answer call with message "hello this is Cortana, owners personal assistant. Seems like your number is not in the approved list. Please leave a brief message and owner will get back to you. Also could tell phone owner" caller is on phone would you like to accept or send to VM". Cortana could help with robocalls and unsolicited telemarketers/scam/phishing calls.

  15. cambiar motor de búsqueda de Cortana

    puedes cambiar el motor de búsqueda del launcher, pero Cortana siempre va a buscar por Bing si agregaran la opción de cambiar su motor de búsqueda predeterminado estaría perfecto

  16. Cortana bluetooth

    Launcher integrated Cortana needs to be able to respond to bluetooth long press action (like non-integrated Cortana and Google Assistant).

  19. Make Cortana work like it did on Windows Phone. Automatically via audio read it and accept audio replies.

    Can't get Cortana to work in my car like it did when I had a Windows Phone. it would tell me who the message was from, as to read or ignore it, after reading ask if I wanted to reply. if reply let me say message, repeat it back, then as to send. it was great. can't seem to get it to do that on Android. Running beta version 3.3.
