Microsoft has pushed out a significant update to its Windows 10 beta. The new Windows internal build, dubbed "build 14279," brings in more languages support for Cortana along with other nifty additions.

Cortana In More Languages
The new build enables Microsoft's digital assistant for the Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Mexico) and French (Canada) languages.

"If you're running the Windows 10 Insider Preview in these languages — give Cortana a try and let us know what you think," says Microsoft on a blogpost.

Microsoft says it has packed in "local flavor" to match not only the accent and the language of the country but its culture as well.

However, the company underscores that there's still a lot of work to do, and a huge part of the development process depends on the feedback it gets from the members of the Windows Insider Program.

Cortana Handles Reminders
With the new build, Cortana now remembers things for Windows 10 users. As an example, if users wish to save the title of a particular movie to watch at a later time, they can now ask the digital assistant to remind them about it, e.g., "remind me to watch [the title of the movie]." Users can likewise set details at a later time, such as the time, location and people.

The company promises that in future versions of the Windows 10, users will be able retrieve the reminders upon their requests, "just like a real personal assistant would."

Lock Screen Background
In the new build, Microsoft has also made a tweak on the personal computers' lock screen and logon screen. The company has now fused the experience so users will only have one background — the lock screen background, as Microsoft calls it.

Microsoft adds that it is planning to have this particular feature available to users of the Windows Spotlight, and it also working on making the transition between the lock screen and logging in more seamless.
