    Default Microsoft's Cortana Said to be Coming to iOS and Android Devices


    New reports are claiming that Microsoft’s voice assistant, Cortana, currently running on Windows phones, will be making its way over to iOS and Android devices. However, this won’t happen until it becomes available on desktop PCs this fall on Windows 10. Reuters noted that iOS and Android devices will support Cortana in standalone mobile apps in both tablets and phones.

    Microsoft said that its new project titled ‘Einstein’ with Cortana, is a part of an artificial intelligence research project where the voice assistant will be able to understand and read emails. This apparently won’t be arriving until later this year.

    The newly enhanced version of Siri coming in the fall is said to be able to tell users when they should leave for the airport upon a received email of an upcoming flight. It is also said to be able to tell ongoing traffic conditions and the user’s GPS location. Would you download the standalone app if it comes to iOS devices? Or would you stick with Siri? Share with us in the section below.

    So much this. I adore and rely on Google Now.

    I love that we're finally seeing cross platform apps like these. I know we'll never see Siri outside Apple, but I just haven't found her useful.

But Apple still called "AI" (Now it's ok and cautious in answering that question. It says the definition for "Prime minister of India" cautiously with the example of Modi lol

    Anyhow I switched off Siri as I feel it will reduce my device's "something". I like to have a standalone app which I ca fully control. I'll give a try with Cortana and it's Einstein
