As, the app can now walk you through the process of associating Cortana with a long-press on the home button. On launching app the first time, it asks if you'd like to set up some basic features like lock screen support. Once logged in, you get an option to set Cortana as the default assistant. You have to open the app, go to the user's profile on the top right corner, and head to the settings app. The latest updated app brings with it an improved app performance as well as calendar consistency across PC and phone.
