You can now manage Google services through Cortana on Windows 10. Here are the steps to connect your account.
On Windows 10, you can now connect your Gmail account to Cortana to manage your Google Calendar using the assistant. Usually, you set up a new account on your device with a Microsoft account, which Cortana can access to provide a more personalized experience. But to offer more value, Cortana also allows you to connect to other services, not including a Google account until now.
If you’re running Windows 10, you can now connect your Google account to manage Google Calendar using Cortana on your PC, even using voice commands.
In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to connect your Gmail account to Cortana on Windows 10.
