Microsoft’s To-Do service is finally integrated with Cortana. The company announced the major new integration last night, allowing Windows 10 users to setup Cortana to work with To-Do.
The integration will essentially allow you to use Cortana to store your lists and reminders on To-Do instead of Cortana. You will be able to do things like ask Cortana to create a shopping list and sync it with To-Do. The same works for reminders.

The integration itself is a little weird right now, though. To get started, you can only use a Windows 10 PC running an Insider Preview build 18267 or newer. Once you have the integration setup, you can use it with Cortana on any other device — Android, iOS, Windows 10 PCs, or even Cortana-powered devices like the Harman Kardon Invoke. And since these lists and reminders are synced with To-Do, you can use the To-Do app anywhere to access your lists and reminders.
The feature itself is still in its early stages, so there are a couple of limitations. It’s only available to those in the US, UK, India, and Austrailia using English as their system language, and considering Cortana’s history, it’s probably safe to say the feature will take months, or even years before it makes it to other regions.
