In May Microsoft announced that it was going to expand its Cortana voice assistant service to other platforms namely Android and iOS. Well yesterday it announced that the Cortana app is now available to all Android phone users in Beta version.
“You will also see a few differences between what Cortana can do today in her “native” environment (Windows) and in the app on Android. For example toggling settings, opening apps or invoking Cortana hands-free by saying “Hey Cortana” are only available on Windows for now. As with all betas, we are continually improving the experience and will incorporate feedback along the way.”
Here’s a link to the app. You should know that this app is currently available to US users and will soon be available in other locations.
