Cortana gets an update and a changelog to show

Cortana lockedMicrosoft has updated Cortana in background and has also provided a changelog for all the new features it has acquired post its debut in US. While we have kept you informed about all the past changes the changelog reveals that it can now help you with your health and fitness regime too.

Full Changelog:

NFL predictions. Football season is here and Cortana’s got her game face on. Ask her for an NFL game prediction and she’ll give you her pick. (Cortana’s NFL predictions are only available in the US and are for entertainment only.) Press and hold the Search Search icon button, and then try asking Cortana, “Who will win the [team name] versus [team name] game?” Or, just ask about your favorite team and say, “Who will win the [team name] game?”
