The change was noticed by The Verge, which found that the setup process for the next version of Windows 10 can now be simplified significantly using Cortana.
In fact, the service is able to take control of many of the key steps involved in upgrading your device.
Cortana is able to connect to a Wi-Fi network, choose keyboard options and sign into your Microsoft Account, all without you needing to touch the keyboard.
Anyone looking for a more hands-on approach is still able to do so, as Microsoft lets you switch from voice control at any time, but the move could help smooth the update process for those users unfamiliar with the process.
