              • Cortana can't process remind me request

                When I type or talk to cortana in the MS Launcher to ask to set a reminder it launches Bing to search the Web rather than generate a reminder.

                    • Integrated cortana said its not connected to Gmail. Setting says it's "off". But when I tap on it, a new site appear with "disconnected gmai

                      Cortana thinks it's not connected. But when I want to connected, it's says I can only disconnected the ms services

                        • Cortana can't speak Spanish, that's the best problem I can see

                          Cortana can't understand Spanish and obviously she can't speak it.

                          • voice pack for voice input can't download so no cortana; no voice input.

                            tapping voice input icon or cortana icon results in a failed attempt to download voice pack. cortana will not work for search after download fails.

                                Cortana on Microsoft launcher needs to be improved to at least match 1/2 the functionality of Google assistant. Currently Cortana on launcher is rather useless

                                    • Cortana reminders should obviously be notifications and not alarms

                                      I want to uninstall the app every time I get a Cortana reminder on the phone (added with the "remind me" function). It's frankly terribly implemented. It obviously should be a notification, not an obnoxious and annoying alarm that won't shut up with the volume keys and that I need to unlock my phone to access.
                                      Until this is fixed, at least give us an easy way to turn off these alarms altogether; I couldn't find one, and I'd be much happier dealing with these only on my Pc instead of having my phone ring like a maniac for no…

                                      • O365 Cortana integration "off" although connected

                                        I have connected Cortana with my O365 account (Exchange Online plan). Even though the connect button now reads "disconnect", the screen before that (overview screen with O365 and Gmail) shows "off". Cortana also suggested to connect her with my email account, even though I am theoretically connected already.
