LinkedIn announced that it has partnered with Microsoft to get LinkedIn data integrated into Microsoft's digital personal assistant Cortana on Windows 10.

LinkedIn's Bob Rosin explains, "If you’re already using Cortana and have your calendar connected, you’re probably used to getting meeting reminders from Cortana. Now with the LinkedIn integration, when Cortana reminds you of your next meeting, you will see a richer set of information about the people you’re meeting, including their LinkedIn profile photo, job title, and company. If you want to dig in more, with one click you can see their full LinkedIn profile to find who you know in common or where they went to school, so you can start the meeting with something other than the weather."

"All you have to do to get started is add your LinkedIn account to the Connected Accounts in Cortana’s Notebook and you’re ready to go," he adds.
