The best Creators Update feature that has snuck under the radar

The Creators Update for Windows 10 is finally upon us, and with most excited about the desktop OS upgrades, there are also new features which should excite all the Raspberry Pi fans out there.

As part of the Creators Update, Microsoft have added Cortana support to the Windows 10 IoT Core OS – this is the version of the OS which runs on the Raspberry Pi 3.

What this means is, for those looking to play around with digital assistant functionality and voice commands on their mini computer boards, they now can.

As explained by PCWord, Pi users will need to be using Windows 10 IoT Core, and will need to upgrade to the Creators Update to get access to Cortana.
After this, you’ll be able to use Cortana in much the same way as you would on a PC, asking for the time, traffic, weather, or stock prices.

Those looking to experiment with voice commands however, will need to select from a limited range of microphones and speakers that are supported by the Creators Update.

As far as speakers go, only Logitech’s S150 USB speakers are supported. Microphone options are a bit better, but still limited to Sound Tech CM-1000USB Table Top Conference Meeting Microphone , Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000, and the Blue Microphones Snowball iCE Condenser Microphone/Cardioid.

Microsoft seems to be pushing forward with their plans to extend Cortana support to more products. These latest features come after the emergence of the “Cortana speaker” setup wizard that was spotted in Windows 10’s latest version.

Third-parties are known to be working alongside Microsoft on Cortana-powered smart speakers to rival Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Home, however there’s recent speculation they could be opting to develop an in-house speaker instead.

Back in 2016, Microsoft made it public knowledge that it planned to bring Cortana to all Window 10 IoT Core smart gadgets with screens, all as part of its Home Hub project.

Cortana has also been integrated into the Creators Update setup process, helping to guide users through installation, as well as demonstrating Microsoft’s commitment to pushing the assistant to more products & areas.

To get Cortana on your Raspberry Pi, you’ll need to use the Windows 10 IoT Core Dashboard to flash the Creators Update on the device, then allows special permissions in order to activate Cortana.

    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s
    new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back
    frequently!

  29. If there is a friend in the horizon, the heart will fly; if there is hope in the heart, laughter will be refreshing; if there is a fate in life, dreams will last; if there is always a greeting, friendship will set sail.

  30. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic
    job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
    it. Too cool!

  31. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the
    future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you few interesting things or suggestions.

    Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I wish to read even more things about it!

  32. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging
    on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always interesting to read articles from other writers and practice something from other sites.

  33. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.

    But just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could certainly be
    one of the greatest in its field. Awesome blog!

  34. Let life be written, and always remember to ignite the warm sunshine of the soul. There are always some happy shots, hidden in the corner of memory, and gently lifted up inadvertently, shaking off a room of Xiao Se!

  35. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it
    but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some creative ideas for your
    blog you might be interested in hearing. Either
    way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  36. When the love is strong, eachother is in the sea; when the love is weak, it is the same. Love cannot fade when it is strong, but it is difficult to thick when it is weak. Love is difficult to face, that is why it is embarrassing!

  37. Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came
    to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this
    to my followers! Terrific blog and brilliant design.

  38. I want to be with you, even if it is a headless and tailless farce, I will persist until the moment the world fades after you leave the stage, hold a small lamp and stand in the memory waiting for you.

  39. Some things turn around for a lifetime. I didn’t know each other at first, but finally I didn’t know each other. If love is just passing by, why bother here. Some love, had to settle each other, suddenly looking back, I can no longer tell.

  40. There is a kind of love that obviously wants to give up, but can’t give up; there is a kind of love, knowing that it is suffering, but can’t hold back; Can’t take it back already.

  41. Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and
    wished to mention that I have really enjoyed browsing your weblog posts.
    After all I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I am hoping you write once more soon!
