Microsoft is pushing Cortana in the Windows Phone 8.1 update, which is currently available as a Preview for Developers. The personal assistant has been a large hit with consumers (and developers) so we can see why people would like to see Cortana helping out more with their daily lives, but just how far would you be wanting to integrate the assistant?

Perhaps you require assistance in the kitchen, have some minor health symptoms or simply despise booting up your desktop PC and waiting for Windows to load (unless you're luck enough to have a half-decent machine), wouldn't it be neat if Cortana could go beyond functionality on the phone and tap into connected hardware? The possibilities are there, especially with what Microsoft will add to Windows Phone in the future.

We're interested in hearing some ideas as to what you'd like Cortana to help you with. Be sure to join in the discussion over on our community forum and let us know your thoughts in the comments. Also, don't forget the Cortana UserVoice, where you can actually add your own suggestions and whatnot.
