Now the Apple and Android users can download Microsoft’s personal assistant Cortana as the Redmund giant has made the software freely available for iOS and Android. According to reports, Microsoft was testing Cortana on different platforms since past several weeks and now after fixing the bugs the personal assistant has been made available for OS other than Windows 10.
With the help of Cortana, users can set time or location-based reminders, can ask to read any notifications, apart from tracking personal information. Cortana can also book tickets for you, can read your news feed, weather, etc. Although it lacks the deep operating system hooks of Android’s Google Now and iOS’s Siri, Cortana could still be a very useful companion for Windows 10 PC users
Although, Cortana has been made available for Android and iOS devices, but the personal assistant has different capabilities on different platforms. The Android version of Cortana has an edge over iOS version. For example, in android version, incoming call can be viewed by the user on a Windows 10 PC and user can reply from there only. Cortana can be invoked by just saying “hey Cortana”. After saying the initials to wake Cortana, a user can ask almost anything and the app is ever ready to assist.
