  • Microsoft Announces Cortana for iOS & Android Devices Launching Later This Year


    On Android devices, you have a built-in voice assistant called Google Now that you can use to ask your smartphone questions using just your voice and an Internet connection. Likewise, on the iPhone, you can use Siri to ask your smartphone questions using just your voice and an Internet connection; however, you can download Google's search application from the App Store to also use Google Now on your iPhone.

    In the near future, which Microsoft reveals to be later this year in a new announcement, both Android and iOS users will be able to also use Microsoft's Cortana voice assistant on both iOS and Android devices.

    It will be offered as a third-party application in the App Store that the user can download and then launch from the Home Screen; the application will open a Cortana interface where they can then start querying the voice assistant with just their voice and an Internet connection, much like the existing Google Now built into the Google Search application.



    Microsoft also announces Phone Companion, which will make the iPhone ever more compatible with the upcoming Windows 10. It will make it so you can pair your iPhone with your PC and sync your information from one device to another, much like iCloud allows you do. Phone Companion will allow you to run a Microsoft-only application environment on your smartphone, whether it's an iPhone or an Android Smartphone.



    Some features of both Cortana and Phone Companion will require a Windows 10 PC, although you should still be able to use many of the Cortana application's features without a Windows 10 PC, much like the Google Now service in the Google Search application.

      First let's make windows 10 compatible with pc's, other windows and all the other Microsoft products. And than focus on the rest. I recently attempted to install Microsoft office purchased from Microsoft on a pc running windows 8. It turns out that a 2 hour call to tech and install support is required. The first thing they said switch from explorer to google chrome or Mozilla browser ( this is not a lie).The second is to register an outlook email for activation. Come on now!

      Hate to say this, but that is quite an unfair to say that windows 10 is not compatible. I use windows 10 at work and home and only one program doesn't work and that's the Cisco vpn client
