Cortana for Android takes on Google Assistant with redesign, UK expansion

Cortana for Android is coming and it features all the same helpful functionality as the Windows 10 desktop app. This includes cross-platform reminders, missed call alerts, and daily summaries. You can even ask Cortana for help on various matters the same way you would with Google Now. Cortana also lets you manage notifications on your Windows PC and across various Android phones.

If you're in the United Kingdom, Cortana will be available to you over the coming week. And if you're wondering what the heck Cortana is, this is a good place to start.
