The voice assistant is now only available in Windows 10.
Seven years after the service was launched, Microsoft Cortana’s voice assistance client programs for Android and iOS are no longer available. From now on, consumers in supported countries will be able to use Cortana through Windows 10 at most, and in addition, reminders and lists stored in it will remain available through the Microsoft To Do application.
This move is not surprising. Microsoft announced in June that it would stop its mobile tag in Cortana. The company decided in 2019 that it still does not want to establish direct competitors with Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Instead, he began to transform Cortana into a subscribed Microsoft 365 office suite support service, refocusing on helping enterprise customers.
It is very likely that Cortana disappeared from the consumer version of Windows 10 is only a matter of time, even in Windows 10 May 2019 Update, it has been removed from the dedicated application from the search box on the operating system taskbar. Of course, this is not noticeable in Hungary, because Cortana has never been officially listed in the country.
