We’ve heard about Microsoft’s intentions to get the Cortana voice assistant on Android to increase user base. But this app is far from being officially available. However, that’s all set to change now with apk file containing the Cortana virtual assistant for Android leaking out prematurely. You can find the file from a Google Drive page, which will give you a very early look of Microsoft’s competitor to Google Now and Siri.
It was previously believed that Cortana on Android would require a Windows 10 running PC to function. But luckily, that doesn’t appear to be the case here as it works on its own and can take commands pretty well. The app doesn’t appear to be a beta product, which is good news as Microsoft could be close to officially bringing it to the Google Play Store, although a recent report suggested otherwise.
As is the nature of early access apps, we have to mention that it might have some bugs that we weren’t aware of before, so remember that you’re trying it at your own risk. Head over to the link below to download the app and sideload it onto your smartphone.
