Cortana takes control of alarm voice command RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    In my app Realarm I'm using voice commands. Regarding my testing, once user say "set"+"alarm"+"[some time]" Cortana takes control of voice command. What is unreasonable to me, is that Cortana totally ignores command prefix (aka app nickname). So no matter how extraordinary I name my app in vcd.xml file, once there is "set"+"alarm"+"[time]", Cortana takes it. Same case for "Wake me up at" phrase.

    So I'm wondering, how 3rd party developers can make Cortana cooperate with their alarm app. I have found only 1 solution - to avoid word "alarm", which might appear as ridiculous in alarm app.

    Is there any other workaround?


    Best regards
