Microsoft has launched a new video highlighting the efficacy of Cortana when it comes to reminding you of important events, such as anniversaries. The video shows how you can use the reminder function in Cortana to set location-based reminders, with the voice-based assistant's navigational abilities also showcased.

Reminders is one of the many functions Cortana currently offers, with more being added regularly, such as fitness tracking and listing movie showtimes in your area. If you're looking to get in on the Cortana action, the Lumia 635 is available from Amazon and Walmart in the U.S. for just $49.
