Cortana has been unleashed for Android users, but only in a beta form. The company, reportedly, is still tweaking the program to work any kinks out but is encouraging people to download the version and begin using it.
“The Cortana app can do most of the things Cortana does on your PC or on a Windows phone. With the app, you can manage your hectic lifestyle by setting and getting reminders, searching the web on-the-go, tracking important information such as flight details as well as starting and completing tasks across all of your devices,” Cortana program manager Susan Hendrich said in a blog post.
In her entry, Hendrich explained the Android beta version doesn’t carry quite all the bells and whistles as the Windows 10 version, but users should still find it a helpful tool in scheduling their lives.
As The Verge reported, most of the same features are there with access to notebook, the ability to search for events, places to eat and all the news, sports and weather features the Windows 10 configuration carries. However, Android users can’t use their voice for Cortana — Microsoft notes different device configurations means Cortana won’t always hear and register a user’s request.
Regardless, even with the few missing items, Cortana is now ready to assist users.
