Microsoft posted an updated for the Cortana for Android beta app, taking it to version 2.9.4.

According to the changelog, the update, Cortana 2.9.4 “is a major evolution” and brings the following improvements:

  • You can now view top news and to-do in My day view
  • Smart suggestions to help you do things fast
  • Users can create a new list and edit list items.
  • Easier to sign in/up – you can quickly sign up with phone number
  • Personalized help & tips.
  • Chitchat buttons, so fun with Cortana is just a tap away

As a reminder to our readers – on some Android phones Cortana can be set as the default voice assistant (see how to here), which is very useful to maintain reminders and alerts across platforms.

If you are part of Cortana’s beta testing program, you can get the latest improvements here — if not, you can sign-up for the beta testing program here.
