How to Send a Text Using Cortana

Now that it’s July and the final people are getting Windows 10 I thought it would be fun to go over a few of the new features. Windows 10 is all about seamless integration between computer and other devices.

One example is using Cortana, your new personal assistant, to send a text message from your computer. Why? Well to save you from fussing with your phone. It’s much easier to type from your computer and to attach documents that you might want to include.

In the Cortana box type Send Text and then click Send a Message



Cortana will then ask you to fill out the form. When you hit Send the message goes out via your phone. How you ask? The first time you try this Cortana will ask to connect to your phone. You will need the Cortana app installed on your phone if it’s not already there. It is available for all types of smart phones. The person you are sending to however does not need Cortana – they just need the ability to receive a text.



Now you can send a text directly from your computer. It’s much easier to type from your computer and to attach documents that you might want to include.
