Alpha version of Cortana broadens its horizons in India and other countries beyond news and weather
The countries where the alpha version of Cortana is being employed include Australia, Canada (English speaking region), France, Germany, India, Italy and Spain. The beta version is available in the U.S., U.K. and in China.
Sometime this month, the beta version of Cortana will be available to Android users via the Google Play Store. This version will not offer all of the same features that Cortana offers Windows Phone users. Many of those rockin' an Android handset are hoping that the personal assistant's prediction algorithm will be accessible. Cortana has had amazing success predicting winners of sporting events, reality shows and elections.
A version of Cortana for iOS is expected to become available later this year.
