Cortana for Android arrives in the UK and gears up for a global launch


It's been a few months since Cortana, Microsoft's virtual assistant, came into our lives in an official way. It is present in Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile and also in other operating systems such as Android, where at the moment it is only available in the United States and for a few hours in the United Kingdom, in what appears to be a preliminary step for the global launch.

With this new launch, Microsoft also wanted to take advantage of the situation to completely renew its interface. We could say that it is more attractive with a purple hue that gives it an interesting touch of color that makes it very pleasing to the eye.

The new version of Cortana can already be installed from Google Play, if you are in the United States or the United Kingdom, and also through the APK, although from now on we must tell you that the version of the virtual assistant for Android still does not understand and understand Spanish.


In addition to the new Cortana interface, users can also see an enhancement of the search bar with a button that displays the different types of search, as well as the available actions. Before we had to remember a command to be able to add an appointment or a reminder, and now it will simply be enough to touch a button.

Microsoft continues to try to polish Cortana and provide it with an increasing number of functionalities and options, although for it to be everything they want it to be in Redmond there is still a long time to go. Hopefully the waiting time to see the assistant in Spain (on Android) and other countries is rather short.

Do you regularly use Cortana on your Android device even though you don't understand Spanish yet?.
