Microsoft Cortana iOS

Microsoft today released a major update for Cortana app for beta testers on Apple App Store. This v3.3.1 update comes with Alexa integration and more. With the new Alexa integration, you can access Alexa by saying “Hey, Cortana, open Alexa… Switch on my bedroom lights.”

With this update, you can also ask Cortana “What’s up” or “My updates”, to get quick updates on what’s next in your day. You can now fill out a reminder automatically when you ask the next game of a NBA team. For example, you can just ask ‘Next game of Warriors’.

Finally, when you set a new alarm through Cortana, you can check the conflict events in your calendar.

Download the updated app here from App Store.
