After updating to the latest MS launcher: when I select the voice assistant near the tasks list in the glance page I am unable to set a timed reminder like i can from the search widget on my home page. when i use the new voice input (attachment with the "speak now in english" text) the task field simply gets populated with what i say instead of it intelligently setting a reminder based on the criteria i provided. Its like its not using Cortana anymore.

 

Current workaround is to use the search bar on my home screen that still seems to have a working Cortana microphone button. This presents its own problems because the tasks list doesn't update immediately in the launcher with the new task. refreshing manually causes another bug to happen with due dates getting pushed back (I have another post on that one)
