Microsoft says the newest Cortana for Android is a “major evolution”
Microsoft has just released a major update for Cortana on Android devices. The new version of the app is called a “major evolution” suggesting many important features and improvements have been added. Well, let's take a look at what Microsoft confirmed for Cortana v2.9.4, which has just been published in the Google Play Store.

First off, Cortana users will now be able to create a new list and edit list items on Android devices. Also, smart suggestions have been added too to help users do things faster and easier.

In the latest version of Cortana, the top news and to-do can now be viewed in My day view. Moreover, it should now be easier to sign in/up since Microsoft added the option to sign up with the phone number. 

Another minor tweak concerns the chit-chat buttons, which are now just one tap away. Finally, Microsoft added personalized help & tips for the Cortana on Android, so it should now be easier to understand how to use the app.

Still not as useful as it is on W10M. It is the best hands-free assistant I have used while driving. Never screws up the name I tell it, and when I get a message, it prompts and asks if I want to hear it, and reads it back. Rarely screws up. Can't say the same for Google Assistant or S-Voice. They've gotten better, but I miss the auto-prompting from my L950. It was just a better "phone", even though it sucked at everything else.

MS is still doing Cortana? Why? They do not have viable mobile.
