    As per The Verge , The update is expected to include a notification center, a "Cortana" personal assistant, Skype improvements, and a number of UI changes.

    So what do you guys love to have ?

    Notification center and individual volume controls are gonna finally bring us up to par. Cortana is just a gimmick.

    I don't believe Cortana is a gimmick. Have anyone watched the Ford Evos concept. Supposedly, the tech they're using is MS and that showed capabilities that has been discussed. Search on YouTube the official video.

    I would be quite happy with a number of modest work-related changes:

    • Option to open password -protected Office files
    • Option to delete rows and columns in an Excel file
    • Option to edit a forwarded or replied to email
    • Calendar that doesn't hide the tasks older then two weeks
    • Option to attach files to an email

    Chances are you won't need one but if you read this it may shed some light. However, it's a bit techie. Virtual private network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you work in a company, best way to think of it is an Intranet. Or a private internet within the company. You can also set them up in your home as well.

    TBH, the Google Now feature, is the most innovative thing about android, and I absolutely won't mind having a copy of that.

    My friend gets automatic notifications and ETA to the location for his flights, meeting, commute, even restaurant habits!!!!!!

    I know everyone hates how google gets into someone's private life, but if it was for such features, I really won't mind cortana to come and live with me.

    GoogleNow is great, when you live in the US. Outside of the US GoogleNow most of the time shows you the weather, calender events and perhaps some soccer scores. If you are lucky, it will also show you public transit information. I hope MS will do it better!

    One thing I will say about Google Now, in order to get the most out of it you have to let google all up in your business. By its very nature, the more Google Now knows about you the better it works.

    that's obvious.

    And about the Google now is only good in the US, not true, I've seen it work in KSA pretty amazingly. Its all about your routines.

    Well, whatever ends up being released it will not achieve everyone's expectations. I can almost state that as fact!

    It can't because Microsoft have left themselves so much to do it will be impossible. Completely wasted the 3 updates released so far, I only want the ability to edit playlists like any normal music player should, but I doubt that will be in the update.

    Literally took them 3 years to add this and apparently its not finished with no fm radio or podcasts and at the cost of the features of the built in client but I guess they have a few months to finish it off.

    NATIVE DLNA SUPPORT! It pains me that you still can't just play to other devices from the music player. I don't have a Nokia phone so PlayTo isn't an option sadly. iPhones have seamless DLNA and most androids do too.
