Microsoft announced about bringing it’s own voice assistant ‘Cortana’ to Android this year. But yesterday it arrived (unofficially) in form of APK, users got hands on it, and it’s working fine so far. Don’t know what Cortana is? It’s a Voice Assistant for Microsoft Smartphones and Tablets and in upcoming Windows 10, same as Google Now for Android and Siri for iOS, which listens to you and provide needed results. It can even connect with lot of apps too. Current unofficial Cortana comes with showing that it’s beta version, so you may face some problems (working fine as far tested). One can check out with Microsoft Cortana Comes To Android [Download Link] and hence follow the tutorial.
How it works? It’s simple to use as any other Voice Assistant, all you have to do is ask your query to it and Cortana will answer it. There are lot of things that you need to know about everyday, Cortana picks up your interests like which sport you like most, what kind of food you like, what’s the weather outside, things happening around you, and a lot, about which it displays information and make searches meeting to them.

In ‘Notebook’ option, you can tell Cortana more information about yourself and details about your likes, so you get exactly what you want from it. You can even tell it your name so it can address you more informally.
This version is that on which Microsoft mentioned that they are working on Cortana for Android. Final version will be launched officially after some more polish. It can do mostly things like Google Now and Siri, but can’t do conversations like them. Hope it comes with final version and some more features to stand in competition with our all time favorite Google Now.
