Microsoft has issued a major update to Cortana on Android iOS. It offers a new look and feel and better integration with smart speakers like the Invoke.
The release appears to be timed to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and there is a prominent “Continue your tasks on PC” card at the top of the Upcoming view to help get you started with this new cross-platform functionality.
The Devices view, available from the hamburger menu, is now lighting up because I have an Invoke. When selected, you can navigate between your history of voice commands, which is kind of interesting, the music that is or was last playing, and device settings.
- A fresh new look with a simpler and improved user experience
- It’s now easier and faster to create reminders to help you stay on top of things
- Redesigned profile and settings page to easily manage your preferences
- Improved performance particularly faster page transitions and app responsiveness
- Regular bug fixes and performance improvements
Looks good to me. I’m going to write about replacing Google Assistant with Cortana on Android soon.
