Out of the myriad digital assistants, Cortana is one of the most popular, especially with Windows users. Following in Siri's and Google Now's footsteps, Microsoft's digital assistant can respond to voice commands to set appointments, check the weather, find information, and more. The faceless voice can also sync users' phones with their Windows 10 PCs and create a seamless integration between the devices. Microsoft brought Cortana to Android and iOS in the United States last year, and now she’s coming to the United Kingdom.

In addition to bringing Cortana overseas, Microsoft is also updating the look of the app. In a press release posted today, the company said that they’ve “created a more simplified look and feel for the apps, designed with your mobile life in mind. Now you can get to what you need faster and easier than ever before with quick actions, putting the most frequent things you do front and center, so setting a reminder or viewing your reminders is just a tap away when you don’t want to use voice.” The app will also be faster and access information and data more quickly.

The Cortana app will be available on Android devices over the next week, and will be available on Apple’s App Store “in the coming weeks.”

I've been a computer geek my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a database administrator. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news and reviews. I've also written for other outlets including UltrabookReview and GeeksWorldWide, focusing on consumer guidance and video gaming. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not writing on electronics or tinkering with a device, I'm either outside with my family, enjoying a decade-old video game, or playing drums or piano.
