    Has anyone else noticed Cortana has been updated today? Here's what I noticed so far:
    - When you click on the Cortana tile, she has new animated expressions (for example, she turns into a bouncy ball like she's excited... really cool!)
    - The live tile now has new icons on it - The normal Cortana breathing icon, Weather, Traffic to work, and now the weather icon (eg. today it shows a cloud with a sun)
    - New interests + notifications available in Cortana's notebook (for e.g. specific news types, traffic notifications)
    - New quiz option at the bottom of today view to let Cortana learn a bit more about your personal interests/habits.
    - New "Give Cortana Feedback" link at the bottom of Cortana's today view.

    Have you noticed any other changes?

    yeah I notice the bouncing animation I think late last night or early this morning. I thought that was new, lol


    Oh I really don't like that they are and can update cortana. with out letting us know whats new besides just happening to run across it. I would like to know whats happen on the backend . Just so we can take advantage of the new features that are some time not so obvious.

    How did you get this new update? Did it do it automatically, or through phone update?

    I don't seem to have this!

    I didn't do anything... it just automatically started happening for me this morning. I believe Cortana is able to be updated from their end without an app update (similar to Bing search results). Maybe try restarting? or maybe it's still rolling out?

    Well she finally says our name when you ask..."what's my name" ....nope scratch that it stopped working... I guess she got tired of calling me "awesome Adam"

    I had the update this morning, and now its gone. They definitely rolled it back. I had new news types (news around me), the live tile with weather etc, the horizontal divider lines between the info sections, feedback to cortana team.

    My Cortana lost all functionality and fun things since today. Show me my week just shows a Bing search... Hopefully it works again tomorrow.

    I noticed this last night. Cortana seems to be pulling my stocks from the Finance app and my teams from the Sports app now as well.

    I was surprised as the apps haven't been updated since February. This seems more like a client side update than a backend one.

    I think it must have been a mistake on MS's part to release it for sometime. Some of you noticed it, but I think it was not intentional from MS. It does prove though that an update to Cortana with the new features mentioned, and may be some more, is just round to corner :)

    Yea, noticed this too, never saw new animations and I use Cortana every day, at least 3-4 times a day. This morning, I use my normal thing when I miss a game, I said "What was last night's red sox score?", normally she will read the final score of the game, today, it was just a bing search... I was driving so that did not help..

    Boo, didn't add more features it took away features :(
