Microsoft Cortana officially launches on iOS

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Microsoft has officially released its version of its Cortana digital assistant for iOS.

Cortana is your truly personal assistant—helping you get things done by letting your PC and phone work together. Your schedule, your interests, your people, your reminders—Cortana makes sure all that stuff is available wherever you need it.

Set a reminder to pick up milk on the way home while you’re on your PC at work, and Cortana will give you the heads up on your phone when you’re on the road. Ask Cortana to make an appointment, send an email, open an app, or help you find what you’re looking for.

And it’s not only about productivity, Cortana’s always up for a little chit chat. Ask Cortana whatever comes to mind, her answers might surprise you.

Features:

  • Set and get location and time reminders across your PC and phone.
  • Track packages, flights, scores, stocks, and other important info across your PC and phone.
  • Use Cortana’s Notebook to view, edit and manage your interests
  • Get information and answers to all kinds of questions. If you’re looking for it, Cortana can help find it.
  • Have a little fun in your down time — ask anything, get jokes, and much more.

Microsoft has also announced that Cortana will be available for the OnePlus One smartphone when its Cyanogen OS with the 12.1.1 over-the-air update is released sometime later in December.

Microsoft plans to expand Cortana to more Cyanogen OS devices in 2016 with a more integrated experience:

The custom integration includes the ability to ask Cortana to toggle network modes, power down your phone, and turn on Quiet Mode amongst other features. With Quiet Mode enabled, all notifications, calls and alarms will be silenced.
