Microsoft Cortana comes to an end on Android and iOS

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

It was known since July last year that Microsoft’s personal assistant Cortana would be discontinued on the Android and iOS operating system.

If you happen to be a user of this assistant to help you in your daily life, then you will be very disappointed as you will no longer be able to use your mobile phone to enjoy what you are used to doing with Cortana. The application will no longer be supported by Microsoft and many of the functions will no longer work.

This situation has now been confirmed for two days, but if you haven’t noticed, after March 31, Cortana’s mobile application stopped working at its full potential. Allied to this situation and the fact that Microsoft no longer officially supports the application, all content that users may have saved in Cortana, such as reminders, events, lists, etc., will no longer work.

However, there is good news, and this is the fact that all the content you have created in the Cortana application on your smartphone, whether in an Android or iOS environment, you can continue to have access to that same data (and, of course, through Windows).

In addition, the company has already announced that Cortana’s existing reminders, lists and tasks will be automatically synchronized to one of its existing applications in the Office productivity suite, Microsoft To Do. The latter can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store or from the Google Play Store.

Apparently, Microsoft’s decision to discontinue Cortana and its support at the mobile device level may have to do with the fact that it will not have had a lot of adhesion by users during its lifetime. In any case, Microsoft should continue to have plans to continue using the personal assistant for productivity functions in Windows.
