Cortana, Microsoft’s digital assistant similar to Apple’s Siri, will be available as a standalone app for iOS and Android, according to a report from Reuter’s.
Cortana was first made available to Microsoft mobile devices last year. The Halo-inspired app uses Microsoft’s Bing search engine to help users manage contacts, calendars, messages, alarms, and more. Jen Taylor, who also voiced Master Chief’s digital assistant in the Halo franchise, will be voicing the app version of Cortana as well.
No date has been announced yet for the Cortana app to appear on Android and iOS phones.
