Cortana can have your phone send a text reply via your PC
Last week, we exclusively showcased a new feature in Windows 10 that allows Cortana to send SMS messages and showcase missed call alerts. Windows 10 desktop build 10565 includes an option to alert you when you miss a phone call, and now works seamlessly with Windows 10 Mobile build 10572.
With the latest Windows 10 Mobile build (10572), you can now use Cortana to notify you on your PC if you missed a call on your phone. When you miss that call, you can easily reply with a text right from your PC — and Cortana will have your phone send that message! How cool is that?
You can even open Cortana and say “text” along with the name of your contact. Cortana will then take your message and send it from your phone. You need Windows 10 Mobile build 10572 and Windows 10 desktop build 10565 (or higher) to utilize this new feature. You can also check out our hands-on demo of this feature below, which we exclusively brought to you last week!
