Cortana is a digital assistant that is available on Windows 10 PCs and phones. It can do many things such as set alarms, create reminders, and open apps. You can also ask Cortana to play music from your personal music collection, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and Groove Music. In this article, we’ll show you how to make Cortana play music on your Windows 10 PC or phone.
Step One: Set Up Cortana
To get started, you’ll need to set up Cortana. You can do this by opening the Windows Store and downloading the Cortana app. Once you have the app installed, open it and sign in with your Microsoft account.
Once you’re signed in, you’ll be asked to choose a language for Cortana. After you’ve chosen a language, you’ll be asked to allow some permissions for the app. Once you’ve allowed the permissions, you’ll be asked to choose a nickname for Cortana.
After you’ve chosen a nickname, you’ll be taken to the main screen of the app. From here, you can start using Cortana.
Step Two: Find Music You Like
Now that you have Cortana set up, you can start finding music that you like. To do this, tap on the “Music” icon at the bottom of the screen.
This will bring up a list of music that Cortana knows about. You can tap on any of these options to start playing music.
If you don’t see any music that you like, tap on the “Search” icon at the top of the screen. From here, you can search for specific artists, songs, or albums that you want to listen to.
Step Three: Play Music with Cortana
Once you’ve found some music that you want to listen to, tap on it to start playing it. The first thing that Cortana will do is ask if it’s okay to play music from your phone’s library. Tap on “Yes” to continue.
Cortana will now start playing music from your phone’s library. You can control playback by tapping on the “Play/Pause” button at the bottom of the screen. To skip tracks, tap on the “Next” button next to the play/pause button
Step Two: Set Up Your Music
The next step is to set up your music so that Cortana can play it. You can do this by opening the app and going to the settings menu. In the settings menu, you will need to select the “Music” tab. After you have selected the “Music” tab, you will need to select the “Source” drop-down menu. In the “Source” drop-down menu, you will need to select the option for “Groove Music.” If you do not have Groove Music, you can download it from the Windows Store.
Step Three: Ask Cortana to Play Music
Now that you have linked your Spotify account with Cortana, you can ask her to play music from Spotify. You can say things like “play my Discover Weekly playlist” or “play some rock music.”
If you have multiple music apps installed on your device, Cortana will ask you which one you want to use. If you only have one music app installed, she will automatically start playing music from that app.
Step Four: Enjoy Your Music
Now that you have everything set up, it’s time to enjoy your music! To get started, just say “Hey Cortana, play some music.”
If you want to be more specific, you can ask Cortana to play a specific song, album, artist, genre, or playlist. For example, you could say “Hey Cortana, play ‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen,” “Hey Cortana, play the album ‘Jazz’,” “Hey Cortana, play some classical music,” or “Hey Cortana, play my party playlist.”
You can also ask Cortana to pause or resume playback, skip to the next or previous track, repeat the current track, or shuffle your music. For example, you could say “Hey Cortana, pause the music,” “Hey Cortana, skip to the next song,” or “Hey Cortana, turn off repeat.”
If you want to change the volume or change where your music is coming from (for example, if you have multiple speakers set up), just say “Hey Cortana, turn up the volume” or “Hey Cortana, play my music on the kitchen speaker.”
