Microsoft introduces Cortana app for Android.Yes!What you just heard is true.Microsoft finally released cortana for android but it is still in testing process.However you can try cortana app in your android.

Cortana is the name for the intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator from Microsoft.It builds off Microsoft’s previous voice technology called TellMe, which was purchased by Microsoft in 2009. It competes against Android’s Google Now and Apple’s Siri voice assistants.
Cortana’s features include being able to set reminders, recognize natural voice without the user having to input a predefined series of commands, and answer questions using information from Bing (like current weather and traffic conditions, sports scores, and biographies).
Windows 8.1’s universal Bing SmartSearch features are incorporated into it, which replaces the previous Bing Search app which is activated when a user presses the “Search” button on their device.It also includes a music recognition service. Cortana can also roll dice and flip a coin by asking the commands “roll a dice” (one dice), “roll the dice” (two dice), and “flip a coin”,Concert Watch is a feature that helps Cortana determine which bands or musicians you are interested in by monitoring your Bing searches.
Cortana also integrates with the Microsoft Band for Windows Phone devices if connected via bluetooth. On the Microsoft Band it can make reminders and bring phone notifications.
Since the Lumia Denim series, launched in October 2014, active listening was added to it, enabling it to be triggered with the phrase: “Hey Cortana,” even across the room and without the need to touch the phone.
After the trigger phrase is spoken,it can be controlled normally for tasks like setting a reminder, asking a question, or launching an app. Some devices from the United Kingdom by O2 have received the Lumia Denim update without the feature but this was later clarified as a bug and Microsoft had since fixed it.
It also integrates with services like Foursquare to provide restaurant and local attraction recommendations.
The name ‘Cortana’ comes from the fictional, artificially intelligent (AI) character in the Halo video game series. The first evidence of it’s existence was found in June 2013 in the Windows Phone Central forums, appearing as ‘Cortana’ from a developer device that was accidentally sold to a non-Microsoft employee.
And now it is finally for our lovely android device.
