International version of Cortana now recommends places to eat and drink
While those in the U.S. with a Windows Phone 8.1 powered device already have this feature, some European users have also been able to ask their virtual personal assistant to suggest a place to eat. Luckily for those using a Windows Phone 8.1 powered handset, Microsoft can add new capabilities to Cortana without having to push out a system-wide update.
So the next time you start feeling the pangs of hunger, you can turn right away to Cortana for a suggestion on where to dine. And for those families bringing along some rambunctious children, you can also ask Cortana to find restaurants that are "kid-friendly".
