Cortana has become much more capable over the past few years ever since Microsoft announced its very own virtual private assistant. It’s even integrating it into the setup process for new Windows 10 PCs. The company has made a major change to the way the setup process works on a new PC. It will now be possible for users to set up a new Windows 10 PC with voice commands by using Cortana.
All new Windows 10 PCs that ship with the Creators Update installed now have this feature. Cortana will greet the user when the PC is turned on for the first time and needs to be set up.
Cortana will then help the user connect to Wi-Fi networks, sign into a Microsoft account, and more so that they can get up and running soon by using their voice commands.
You don’t necessarily have to buy a new PC to experience this feature. You can also clean install the Windows 10 Creators Update on your existing PC and take this feature for a spin as well.
Even though Cortana can now guide you through the entire setup process, it’s not like you can’t use the keyboard and mouse to fly through the process or you just don’t feel the need to involve Cortana in this part of the Windows 10 experience as well.
Wow, Windows 10 now includes Cortana during setup. When you clean install you can use your voice to setup a PC. Really neat pic.twitter.com/tnboxH10JP
