Cortana will let you send texts from your Windows 10 PC

Windows 10 Mobile logoMicrosoft is unifying its mobile and PC platforms with Windows 10, and now we're starting to see new features that really take advantage of the new operating system. Microsoft is releasing a new preview of its Windows 10 Mobile software today that allows Cortana to send texts from your PC. If you use a Windows 10 Mobile device then Cortana will notify you of any missed calls, and you can reply straight from your PC.

The actual message will be sent as a text from your phone, but this integration means you don't have to pick up your phone to send messages each time. You can type or speak "text" into Cortana and you can send a text to any contact as you would normally do from your phone. This works by using the same Microsoft Account on a PC and phone, allowing Cortana to sync data in the cloud and pass it between both devices. If you have multiple PCs then you can disable missed call notifications on each machine. While this is clearly limited to Windows 10 Mobile for now, it will be interesting to see if Microsoft can extend this to Cortana for iOS and Android in the future.

Microsoft is also previewing a new messaging experience for Skype in this latest Windows 10 Mobile update. Skype integration is finally here, with the ability to use it throughout the Messaging, Phone, and Skype video apps. If you're on Windows 10 on your PC then you can already download a preview of the apps, and the mobile equivalents are very similar thanks to Microsoft's universal apps. Microsoft is expected to finalize Windows 10 Mobile shortly, and the company is planning to roll it out to existing devices in December.
