Hey Cortana...
Adding to-dos just got easier

November 17, 2016 - Comments

We love making it as easy as possible for you to add to-dos. Quickly capturing your thoughts and ideas helps you keep your productivity on track. So with that in mind, we're excited to be bringing you a new way to add to-dos with your favorite personal assistant, Cortana! Initially available to US English Windows 10 customers, her new list skill lets you connect your Wunderlist straight to Cortana for easy access to your lists.

How to get started

Let's start with the basics—tap on the microphone next to the Cortana icon and say "Create a Holiday Planning list" and Cortana will make a new list. Next all you have to do is tap on 'Do more in Wunderlist', follow the prompts to sign in to your Wunderlist account, and authorize the integration. Now, the lists and to-dos you create with Cortana will sync with your Wunderlist.

Just in time for the Holidays

If your Holiday planning is off to a slow start, then there's probably already a bunch of things you want to add straight to the list. The good news is that all you need to say is "Hey Cortana, add Turkey to my Holiday Planning List". In a flash, you'll have a fully-populated Holiday Planning list. When you want to get organized, you'll just have to head to your Wunderlist, share the list and start assigning all the to-dos to your friends and family. Sounds like the perfect start to the Holiday season to us!

But what happens if you're browsing your favorite foodie blog and want to quickly check if you've got all the ingredients for that special desert on your list? Cortana's got you covered. Just say "Hey Cortana, what's on my Grocery List" and Cortana will bring up the list for you to view. It's as easy as pumpkin pie!

This is just the beginning—we have big plans for our integration with Cortana and we can't wait to share more details with you in the future. But, in the meantime we want to hear from you—what features do you want from Wunderlist and Cortana? Tell us on Twitter, Facebook or in the comments below.

Please note that this integration is currently only available on Windows 10, iPhone and Android devices in English, in the US. Not in the US? The Cortana team is working to bring this to more languages and regions, so keep an eye out.
