Cortana is becoming more helpful with a new set of features for your Daily Glance, recommendations, and more. The Daily Glance section will now show you travel times to home and upcoming calendar items at the end of your day, and Cortana will now keep track of flights, for instance.
Concert recommendations are being added. Cortana will recommend concerts to you based on searches made on Windows Phone, Windows 8, and Bing.com. Results for events within 100 miles of your home address will then be available in Cortana. You can also ask Cortana about artist tour dates and more.
If you search for a particular flight twice within a week either through Cortana or on Bing.com, Cortana will recognize that it might be important to you. Once you confirm that it is, the flight will be added as an interest in Cortana's notebook, and you'll see updates on the Bing homepage carousel, in addition to Cortana. This feature is US-only for the time being.
Cortana will also gain the ability to recommend apps based on your location. Cortana will let you know if an app that is already installed is relevant to your location. If you don't respond to a particular app recommendation, Cortana will stop showing it to you after a few times. This feature is available in both the US and UK.
What do you think of these new additions to Cortana, and what would you like to see next? Sound off in the comments.
