    Instead of:
    • I say: "remind me to 'text my wife' when I leave work"
    • ding! (reminder when I leave)
    • I say: "text my wife 'on my way home'"

    Can she:
    • "text my wife when I leave work, 'on my way home'"


    I can think of a zillion uses for this...
    • "when I get to church, turn my volume off"
    • "when I get home, enable wifi"

    I've tried variations, with no luck. Maybe not saying the key words, or perhaps it's not possible.

    As far as having her automagically text someone when you leave a place, it hasn't worked for me. That would be nice though or at least a pop up that says that she will send a text to so and so and you just have to say "OK".

    For the WiFi thing, if you have your "home" set in Cortana's notebook, in the WiFi settings when you turn it off, there's a pull down for "Turn WiFi back on" and you can choose "near my favorite places". It won't turn it off automatically when you leave though, but Cortana can turn if off if you tell her.
