Cortana for Android update brings performance improvements and usability tweaks

As you know, Microsoft's digital assistant Cortana is available on several platforms, such as Android, iOS and company's own Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. Its functionality was on par on every platform for some time, but that doesn't mean there's no way to improve it. Yesterday Microsoft released another update for the Android version, bringing some performance improvements, tweaks to the app's UI and some more minor but welcomed changes.


The new update is marked as version 1.9.10. According to the official change log, the main highlights of this release are:

  • Faster, better home page loading.
  • More accurate reminder triggering on Android M devices.
  • A better notification sound for reminders.
  • Pull down refresh capability for your reminder list page.

There's nothing special about this release, especially since most of the tweaks are happening on the server side, but some of the introduced changes may dramatically improve the experience for some of its users.

You can download the latest version of Cortana for Android from the Play store. Keep in mind that it's available for install only in select regions.
