13. Cortana everywhere
Cortana on your PC and Cortana on your phone keep close ties, drastically increasing the usefulness of installing the digital assistant on all your devices.
Cortana can pull notifications and low-battery warnings from your phone and beam them to your PC, reducing the need to pull your phone out of your pocket – and the threat of a dead device at the end of the day. You can also receive your Android or Windows 10 Mobile phone’s notifications on your Windows PC, and respond to texts via Cortana. One last trick: pulling up Maps directions on your PC and pushing them over to your phone via the Cortana app.
