According to a offcial word of Microsoft, it will bring the famous voice assistant Cortana to Android devices in the end of june and later it will be available for iOS user. We are in July now and no we have no official release of Cortana but fortunately we have a leaked apk file that it was uploaded probably from someone inside Microsoft.
You can’t expect a fully working Cortana because it’s still a leaked apk and it is in the beta stage. Most of the things work fine but there are some others that don’t work as they should do. However for a beta release it work pretty fine and you should give it a try. According to the first test we have to say that Microsoft has done a good job porting it’s voice assistant Cortana over the Android platform.
There are rumours talking about Cortana that don’t work on all Android devices. This is something to be expected because it is not only a beta stage of the app but it also it’s not released officially from Microsoft. So we have to expect not a fully working Cortana until Microsoft release the official port. Cortana will not work in every country because for now it’s limited only to these countries: United States, Canada, United Kindom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, China and India.
When you open Cortana for the first time, it requires a Microsoft account. This is something normally because Microsoft needs to ensure you are using a Microsoft account in order to get the features.
