Microsoft Cortana now officially available for download as it comes out of public beta

Cortana Android

Microsoft’s #Cortana voice assistant for Android has been available for quite some time now, although it was always in Beta. Well, the app has officially exited the beta status and is now available for download, assuming the users have compatible software (Android 4.0 and up).

A leaked APK originally revealed the existence of the Cortana app for Android and we’ve seen the app becoming quite popular since then. But even despite its popularity and availability on a myriad of devices, it was still in beta. Existing users will be pleased to know that the application will now be working in full force, devoid of any glitches (hopefully) as it has officially exited the beta status.

As for the feature set on board, Cortana is pretty much the same as Google Now, so you won’t see this replacing your favorite Android voice assistant anytime soon. However, it’s good to know that an alternative is out there for the customers to try out and tinker with.
