Cortana finally gives weather in Celsius based on your weather settings

Cortana in Celsius

For some time now, users outside of the US using Cortana could get the weather but it was always in Fahrenheit. To get around this US-based temperature system, users had to use the voice assistant to request the temperature in Celsius specifically each time. It worked, but it was also cumbersome.

This morning, Windows Central began receiving numerous reports that their weather is now showing up in their Cortana stream in their regional preference aka Celsius.

Tip: Use Windows Phone Store QR in Chrome for easy downloading of apps and games

92

One of the benefits of using the Chrome browser (and Firefox) is the ability to install extensions to add unique functionality to the browser. One of them is a QR code generator for the Windows Phone Store. We have covered a similar extension before, but it stopped working after the Store switched to HTTPS.

Now, a new developer by the name of George Schizas has shared his updated version of the extension, which is, of course, free.

The extension is simple: navigate to the Windows Phone Store web site on your PC, and whichever app you are looking at, a corresponding QR code is generated.

Fifty Photo Shades has a simple interface where you can adjust the highlights and color tones after the image is converted to black and white to create some nice effects. The Windows Phone photography app may not be for everyone but it has potential of being a decent Windows Phone effects editor. The app just needs a little fine tuning on how it makes that initial conversion to black and white.

Here is what Cortana's new Showtimes + Trailers feature looks like (Update)

Cortana Movie Showtimes

At the end of February, we reported that Cortana had picked up a few more Interests for users to select optionally. One of those was Showtimes + Trailers, which as the name implies has to do with movies playing nearby.

When we wrote that article, the feature itself was not live, but today we noticed that information had finally started to percolate into our Cortana feed.
