Early Look at Microsoft Cortana for Android and iPhone
Well Microsoft never fails to make our mobile life awesome. The once available Cortana app for Windows phone will be arriving on Android devices and iPhones end June and later this year, respectively. The company announced on Tuesday and made the news official.
They newly released YouTube video showed users what the Cortana app for Android and iPhone looks like. The ‘phone companion’ app looks a lot like the original Windows app and answers queries across all devices connected.
The newly announced app for phones other than Windows lets users constitute their devices for enhanced work and play. The Cortana app can do work better than an efficient assistant (and let me add here, a good looking efficient assistant). It can check flight schedules and keep a track of them, remind you to buy your favorite ice-cream and even ask you to leave before time for a meeting depending on the traffic on your route.
Yes sir, Cortana is that smart; however, the app for iOS and Android does not allow you to do everything. It won’t be able to access third-party apps and does not even support the ‘Hey Cortana’ verbal response via the hands-free. The plus point of the app would be the manual limited specification of information the app can obtain from Cortana’s Notebook.
Xbox Music app update has also been announced by Microsoft for iOS and Android. It allows users to stream free music from all their devices, only once it is first synced with OneDrive cloud. So if you are on the road and you don’t have enough space on your devices for music and do not want to carry the burden of your laptop, this is like a free radio for all.
