US: Microsoft is planning to expand its intelligent-assistant ambitions by bringing Cortana to iOS, Android and Cyanogen mobile devices. According to Marcus Ash, Group Program Manager for Cortana, the news marks a big step in delivering on Microsoft's vision to make Cortana's assistance available to users regardless of their devices of choice. "Cortana was created to be a truly personal digital assistant — available on the go, no matter where or when you need help, and on whatever device you carry. That's why it's important to us that we bring Cortana to not only the Windows 10 ecosystem, but to other platforms,” said Ash in a blog post.
The Cortana app is available today in both the US and China for Android devices running 4.1.2 and up, and for iPhone with iOS 8 and up.
