Cortana 2 beta freezes Global Media Controls - Edge Canary

Honored Contributor







Above you can see all of the required details. Edge Version (Official build) canary (64-bit)


The problem:

I'm playing a YouTube video on the new Edge browser, then i bring up the new Cortana 2 beta app and start talking to her, now if I type in "turn off" or "shut up" or "off", it pauses the YouTube video that's being played and it also freezes the Global Media Controls button in a way that it becomes unresponsive to mouse clicks, when I click on it nothing happens. at this point I have to click on the paused YouTube video itself to resume it and after that the Global Media Controls key starts working normally again.

With you being on an Insider Preview of Windows and using a Beta of the Cortana App, it would be hard to pin down the exact cause of the issue.
