iphone-cortana

Microsoft has been offering the iOS version of its intelligent assistant Cortana as a small-scale beta since last month, and it’s now ready to go live. Cortana is available on the App Store now.

Don’t expect it to match Siri for functionality, however – with Siri deeply embedded into iOS and Cortana a mere app, it will have limited capabilities, but you can at least see how it compares when it comes to answering questions …

You’ll need to be running iOS 8 or later, and it will initially be available only in the U.S. and China.

Siri in the meantime just learned a new trick: as of yesterday, it can play Apple Music on the new Apple TV.
