Microsoft launches Cortana app dedicated to Samsung devices

Cortana for Samsung

The battle of voice assistants is getting fiercer with each passing day. Alongside the Apple’s Siri and search engine giant’s Google Assistant, Bixby joined the party a month ago with the Galaxy S8 and S8+. However, it is limited only to these devices.

It seems like Microsoft is aiming to cash in on this opportunity as it launched a dedicated Cortana app for Samsung handsets. There’s no word on whether the app will add any features especially for the Samsung devices nor there is information regarding which devices will the app support.

What we do know, however, is that the app will help you to keep track of things across multiple devices, set reminders on PC to get alerts on phone, and more.

Further, Cortana will remind you of your missed calls on your PC and allow you to send replies. It will also give you smarter and personal recommendations based on your preferences.

You can download the Microsoft’s Cortana app for Samsung handsets from the link provided below. Do make a note that the app is currently unreleased which means it may not be as stable as you’d expect.

  1. Samsung already has their hands full with the Bixby and google Assistant AI capabilities, wonder how is this going to help them, if they can make the Cortana app available for lower or mid-range samsung devices then also there will be battle between Cortana and Google assistant, I just don’t think this is going to work out well for Microsoft…

    1. Maybe it’s a choice for people who don’t prefer Bixby(Do they exist? )Samsung did announce that Bixby will be released even in the low end like the j3 and others so that’s out of the question.Maybe there’s something going on that we don’t know.

  2. Cortana excusive to Samsung devices? Almost feels like they are looking to pick a brawl with Samsung and Google. With exclusive support for Cortana, google assistant already present and Bixby built in, Samsung S8 and the phones which will get Bixby soon enough will have all the major voice assistants in the world right now except for maybe amazon echo and siri. 🙂
