  1. floating Cortana window blocks a lot of UI

    when Cortana is floating, I can't dismiss "allow/block" browser prompts, and I can't complete Google pay purchases. in the latter case Android reports "something is getting in the way of UI". in these cases I always have to kill Cortana to proceed.

    Cortana should stay out of the way. maybe auto hide if there are strict circumstances that she would block.

  2. Cortana sms

    Cortana does not read SMS when I get a text over Bluetooth. This feature was awesome on Windows Phones.

  7. cortana

    Cortana in Microsoft Launcher seems to be at odds with the stand alone Cortana app. One can add tasks to the home screen while the other cannot. Or it says it does but it never shows up. I have allowed all permissions both in Launcher and Cortana and still you find one acts almost completely independent of the other. One can access messages, the other cannot. One can open Outlook calendar, the other cannot. There are tasks each can do that the other cannot. Will we be getting better integration/cooperation between the two soon? Or maybe where Launcher Cortana will…

  9. Google maps location

    location doesn't work when using Cortana build browser. it says it needs location permission which is on for launcher. very inconvenient especially since u need to select Cortana as a default device assistant.

  11. Hey Cortana

    When the "Hey Cortana" feature turned on, the camera on my Samsung Galaxy S8 fails to record video when accessed via the lock screen shortcut or via a button shortcut. Videos still record when the camera is accessed via the app drawer. Failed attempts produce a pop-up that simply states "Warning recording failed." Possibly caused by Cortana refusing to release a lock on the microphone?
