The new vision intelligence support to Cortana, along with this build, will be available starting with the en-US market. That means, if you are a Windows Insider in the fast ring and you selected the region of your system to en-US market, you will be able to first try out these new features.

 

After taking proper permission from you, Cortana will now have more access to your device. You need to be signed-in with your MSA or work account and then give Cortana permission to access your camera roll. You can provide the permission by navigating to Settings > Cortana > Permissions & history > 'Manage the information Cortana can access from this device'.

 

Once the permission is set, Cortana will prompt you to create a reminder when she notices event posters in your camera roll. The next time you take a picture of a flier for an upcoming event, Cortana will reach out asking if you want to create a reminder for that time.
