Microsoft tipster Walking Cat spotted a new feature that could be coming to Windows. Called 'Follow Me,' it will allow the voice assistant Cortana to verbally walk users through processes, like configuring settings or installing software. While the video in Walking Cat's original tweet isn't available to watch in some regions, another was uploaded to YouTube demonstrating the new feature.

The video shows Cortana helping a user hook up a Bluetooth device to Windows. There's no indication when the feature will get added to the voice assistant's repertoire, but with the Windows Fall Update possibly coming next week, here's hoping it's included.
