New Windows 10 preview build brings vernacular Cortana to many nations: All you need to know

Redmond: Latest Windows 10 preview build seems to be a great news for millions and millions of people across the world. If their Windows 10 virtual assistant didn’t speak their vernacular or local languages now, it will start speaking their own lingo now.

This is going to happen in many countries including Brazil, Mexico and French-speaking Canada. So the latest Windows 10 preview build update is going to benefit at least 300 million people in Central and North American users of the Windows 10 machines.windows-10 menu

The Redmond based tech giant has announced that the company’s virtual assistant Cortana will start speaking their vernacular languages in these nations. The company decided to allow users in these countries to take Cortana for a spin. Not only is the virtual assistant’s voice recognition on point, but its understanding of local culture is also updated.

The company seems to be improving its reach and keeping people enticed by what it has to offer. Cortana can now also handle reminders that are only partially filled out, so people can ask the assistant to remind them to do something without specifying a location, time or person. Once a to-do is recorded, the users can go into Cortana’s virtual notebook and include a parameter to have the assistant remind them of it when certain conditions are met, such as the user arriving at a particular location. In a future version of Windows 10, the users will call up those reminders on demand just by asking Cortana, without digging though the notebook.

Nonetheless all good things come with shortcomings of their own too. There are reasons to believe that the Windows 10 preview build also brings a couple of key problems for users. People who have a Surface Book, Surface Pro 3 or Surface Pro 4 might find that their device locks up, and input from the mouse, keyboard and touchscreen doesn’t take. In that case, the only way to fix the problem is to turn the computer off and on again using the power button.
