Cortana can now help you to get timely reminders of your daily, weekly, monthly and yearly schedule. Here’s what you need to do in order to Set Cortana Reminders on Windows 10 to get Cortana suggested reminders. This way you will be able to easily get reminders about the your future appointments and schedules made in emails via Cortana voice and text reminders.
Cortana is getting better with each new Windows 10 update. You can now use it to get reminders about your work or personal commitments automatically so that you never miss out on anything important. Microsoft has brought a new Suggested Reminders feature in the new Windows 10 update. This reminder feature enables Cortana to keep track of any commitment you made in emails and automatically sends a notification, either voice or text, to help you remember.
The information that Cortana uses to push automatic reminders is based on the machine learning which automatically scans all your commitments made in emails to other people. This is a useful feature if you interact with too many people via email on daily basis.
Once you have enabled this Suggested Reminders feature, you will no longer have to worry about forgetting about any commitment you made in emails, such as planning a meeting at work, or gathering of friends, or anything else.
Here are the steps that you need to perform in order to get Cortana Suggested Reminders on Windows 10.
