Microsoft Cortana the iOS version of its intelligent assistant and is available on the App Store now

Hey Siri, download Cortana to my iPhone later today, would you?


Microsoft has been offering the iOS version of its intelligent assistant Cortana as a small-scale betasince last month, and it’s now ready to go live. Cortana is available on the App Store
now.

Don’t expect it to match Siri for functionality, however – with Siri deeply embedded into iOS and Cortana a mere app, it will have limited capabilities, but you can at least see how it compares when it comes to answering questions …

You’ll need to be running iOS 8 or later, and it will initially be available only in the U.S. and China.

Siri in the meantime just learned a new trick: as of yesterday, it can play Apple Music on the new Apple TV.
