Last week a new beta version of Cortana was found in the new 20H1 Windows 10 builds. The new app focus on text interaction rather than voice and is independent of Windows 10 updates. The new app has been spotted in the Microsoft Store and can be installed on devices with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update or later.

The version included in 20H1 has the basic features enabled whereas the version in the store only presents a message “Hi, thanks for taking an interest!”. If you have 20H1 build 18922 the app is already installed.

App description:

Save time and stay organized—Cortana helps handle day-to-day tasks so you can stay on top of what matters most. Cortana can support you by giving you reminders, keeping your to-do lists, and helping you set timers and alarms. Cortana can also give you quick answers to the questions you ask. As an intelligent assistant, Cortana will find all kinds of info, give you weather and traffic updates, and help you search the web. But Cortana will also get to know you better all the time. Cortana will help track and find the things you’re passionate about, like your favorite artists or sports teams, to give you better recommendations and updates.
