Cortana for Android updated with additional customization options

Cortana for Android updated with additional customization options
Microsoft continues to bring new features and improvements to its digital personal assistant, Cortana, especially that the AI is no longer exclusive to Windows Phone users.

Android users have been able to download Cortana on their devices for quite some time and since one of the reasons they prefer Google's platform over other OSes is customization, it make sense for Microsoft to add more of these features to its personal assistant.

The newest update for Cortana for Android devices bring one additional customization option, which is a bit crippled by the fact that it doesn't really offers many choices.

What we mean is that those who are now using Cortana on their Android devices will receive an update that will allow them to customize their personal digital assistant by choosing a different color.

Unfortunately, there are only four colors available to choose from: purple, blue, green and black. But any new feature is more than welcomed, so we can't complain. It's also worth noting that the update hasn't made it to iOS, so it looks like this feature will be exclusive to Cortana for Android, at least for a while.

If you haven't yet used Cortana on your Android phone, then you should know the AI is not available in all countries and it's only compatible with a limited number of devices. Make sure you check Google Play store for compatibility.
