Beta version of Cortana for Android leaks online, screenshots and initial impressions included
We're probably just days before the official release date of Cortana for Android, but it looks like a few photos of a beta version found their way online alongside with a few initial impressions. Allegedly, the beta version that the leakster tried out cam with no bugs at all, and runs exactly as expected, being able to successfully pull down weather data, set alarms, or jot down notes.
As Microsoft announced, since Cortana will come as a standalone app available from the Google Play store, the virtual assistant will not be as powerful on Android as it is on Windows Phone, where it is natively integrated in the operating system.
It won't be long before Cortana finally expands beyond the Windows Phone ecosystem. The powerful Eurovision winner forecaster will soon land on the full version of Windows 10, as well as on the Xbox One, in addition to Android.
The real question remains: will the Android version of Cortana be more than a lobotomized virtual assistant on Android? It's a question that we'll find out the answer to in just a matter of days.
