Cortana Now Shows Foursquare Recommendations

Posted by at 1:16 pm on July 29, 2014

Microsoft today said it has enabled Foursquare recommendations within Cortana, the virtual personal assistant that’s part of Windows Phone 8.1.

Cortana will now proactively showcase local recommendations on handsets, though the feature must first be enabled by device owners. Users can click on the items to discover more information about the nearby venues, but the separate Foursquare application is required to access that info.

There is no need to update or download anything to see the recommendations within Cortana, as Cortana’s Foursquare integration comes from Microsoft’s servers. It is free to use.
