Part of Lenovo’s DOit productivity suite, the REACHit app allows users to access and manage files between multiple devices and cloud storage services from just a single app. Once Windows 10 comes around later this year, REACHit will come with one additional feature: integration with the operating system’s intelligent personal assistant, Cortana.
Revealed at the on-going Lenovo Tech World in Beijing, this is made possible through a collaboration between Lenovo and Microsoft. Not only does it allow users to search their files using voice, the integration between REACHit and Cortana will apparently enable users to search for their files contextually, rather than just titles and keywords.
Through the integration, users can choose to use multiple references such as locations, file types, device name, folder names, and many more in order to look for their files. One such example is shown above in which the user asks Cortana to locate images that the user has taken in specific location and on a specific month.
To be available for Windows 10- based Lenovo notebooks and tablets later this year, the beta version of REACHit that features integration with Cortana will be made available to Lenovo’s Chinese and US customers at first. There is no mention of release date for Malaysia at this moment, unfortunately.
