Cortana, the intelligent assistant from Microsoft, is getting better and better with time. Microsoft is continuously adding new capabilities to Cortana. Up until now, it was possible to get missed call notifications, incoming message notifications, and low battery notifications on Windows 10 desktop using Cortana.
Starting with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (build 16199 and above), Cortana can now show incoming call notifications on your Windows 10 desktop. So, whenever you receive a call on your Android phone, you will get a desktop notification on your Windows 10 PC with options to decline the call and text back to the number from which you are receiving the call.
Currently available only for Android phones, Cortana can display incoming call notifications on your Windows 10 desktop when you receive a call on your Android phone. The call notification is not available for iPhone yet.
The catch is that you cannot receive the call from your Windows 10 desktop. You get Text back and Decline options only.
To enable incoming call notifications, of course, you need to install Cortana app on your Android device and sign in with the same Microsoft account which you are using on your Windows 10 PC.
