When the Windows 10 OS first came out, Microsoft promised their users that they are now in for an experience like never before. The company has been working hard on developing the Windows 10 further, and has been adding newer features to the mix. The latest update for the Windows 10 OS comes in as the Windows 10 Build 14279. Cortana, with this Build 14279 update for the OS has now become smarter than before.
Cortana, which was introduced as the voice based assistant for the Windows Phone 8.1 devices has been introduced for the PC users with the arrival of the Windows 10 OS, and things are all set to take a major leap now as the latest Windows 10 Update brings Cortana to Brazil, Mexico and French speaking parts of Canada.
With this new update, Cortana not only works in three new regions, but also speaks three new languages – Spanish for Mexico, Portuguese for Brazil and French for French-Canada. Not only does this assistant speak these languages, but also knows the culture of those places. Microsoft had the following comment on this newer, smarter Cortana –
“For each new market and language, the Cortana team works to develop a custom experience that is relevant in each individual market and language,” Microsoft said. “For instance, in Brazil—Cortana is fond of pasteis, which is a common food found in many regions across Brazil. And in Mexico, we added local flavor to reflect the accent and language of the country.”
The Windows 10 OS build 14279 has been a major help for the PC users but the users of the Surface devices have not been as lucky with the system, as they have been facing quite some heat with this new update. The users of the Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 4 have complained that many a times they are unable to use any input device on their lock screen, locking them out of their device.
