Microsoft has already confirmed it won't offer a new preview build of Windows 10 to the general public until sometime in early 2015, but it appears that private builds of the upcoming OS are showing more integration with the company's Cortana digital assistant.
A screenshot of one of these builds showing the familiar Cortana icon was posted on Neowin's forums earlier in November, and the website says it has since confirmed that the image is authentic. It's more than possible that Microsoft will add Cortana features to the public preview version of Windows 10.
A recent report claims that Microsoft will hold a press event in late January to reveal the consumer preview of Windows 10, along with the company's plans to extend the OS to smartphones and even the Xbox One game console. Will you use Cortana if it is incorporated into Windows 10?
