Since releasing Cortana on Android and iOS a year ago in the US, you have been telling us what you liked and how you’d like it to be improved. We listened. We’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 new Cortana design on Android and iOS comes with a purple accent, but as per the reports, users will be able to customize the accent of Cortana on their mobile devices soon. In addition to the new design, the most important development is that Microsoft is also bringing it to the United Kingdom in the coming weeks. The personal assistant has been available in the United Sates to Android and iOS users for a while now, but it is now finally coming to the UK.
As of today, Cortana will be available on Android in the UK, and iOS “in a few weeks.” The new design also includes quick actions like new reminders or weather information straight on the landing page of the system for iOS and Android, which means users don’t have to use voice all the time. Microsoft is also adding in full-page answers, and making the app quicker and easier to use.
