  1. Cortana notes

    Cortana (MS launcher) is not able to create notes (onenote), it opens bing search instead.

    • Cortana

      Have a problem with the Microsoft Launcher and Cortana on Android Huawei Mate 10 Pro. I set the MicrosoftLauncher (Cortana) in the system control, standard apps, assistant, voice input. After that, Cortana works after long pressing the middle navitaste. But again and again, sometimes after a short and sometimes after a long period of use, the Google voice assistant automatically sets itself up again, even though GoogleAssistant is disabled. Does anyone have a solution?

      • Cortana nearby traffic

        under feed it shows the map but when you click on it nothing happens. maps is also very small and doesn't really show any traffic.

          • Make timer for x minutes not working

            On Microsoft launcher this function does not work. But on Cortana app 3.0 it's working fine. Do the same for Microsoft launcher's Cortana.

            • Cortana can't set a timer

              When you ask if she can set a timer she prompts you to tell her for how long but after that she is thinking forever and doesn't set the timer, and it just doesn't work.

              • cortana linked with gmail

                Gmail is linked to cortana (MS Launcher App) but is still shown as not linked.

                Why is Wunderlist and To-Do not linkable?

                        • setting a reminder with Cortana by voice appears to crash Microsoft launcher

                          I have Cortana set as my default assistant. I press and hold the home button to invoke Cortana. then I say remind me to call Jon Hamaker at 6:30. then I get nothing. but launcher goes away. and when I press the home button I'm being asked to pick my default launcher. something is broken.

                              • voice assistant won't start

                                long press on Home button shows the "voice assistant" icon, but the assistant never launches.

                                worked fine on Huawei P10, but refuses to work on Pixel XL.

                                don't know if this is Cortana specifically, as my language is Danish.

                                  Microsoft launcher Cortana version gets half the things right and Standalone Cortana app version gets half the things right they need to talk to each other so that they can get 100% of the issues right

                                    When Cortana gives me an ETA to work, and I want to select another route instead of the suggested one, a browser opens, but it is a blank page with just a MAPS header.

                                    • el usuario solicita un recordatorio a cortana, pero se agrega un día de más, fijandolo para el día siguiente.

                                      Le pedí a cortana que generara un recordatorio para el día 16 de enero, pero se generó para el día me 17, volví a hacer dar la misma orden (tal vez no me había entendido bien) pero volvió a marcar el día 17.
                                      Así que hice la orden con fecha el 15, y lo guardo para el 16.
                                      Cortana está agregando un día de más a los recordatorios.

                                      • I don't want to use Cortana but it is still making me use it instead of Google Assistant.

                                        Microsoft Launcher is making me use Cortana instead of Google Assistant. There is no setting to change it.
