The new feature for both the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs has actually been a long time coming, as Microsoft first announced their plans to make this particular service available all the way back in January. Teach them well and let them…use Windows 10? Microsoft is clear that the next incarnation of Windows is aimed squarely at people and making technology better than ever. Cortana’s presence on the desktop is one of the key new features of Microsoft’s soon-to-be-released operating system.

“On July 29th, Cortana will be available in Windows 10 in seven countries, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain”, Microsoft’s Marcus Ash said. Users with Windows 7 or Windows 8 can also reserve their copy of the new OS, and they will receive a notification once Windows 10 is ready to be released.
Xbox’s Major Nelson has the details on how to get the feature up and running.
