Microsoft is once again testing a new and revamped design for its personal assistant Cortana on Android. The company rolled out a major redesign for Cortana on Android and the iPhone late last year, but the latest update is more of an incremental one that improves the original redesign.
The improved look for Cortana ditches the bottom navigation bar in favor of a new hamburger menu. The hamburger menu gives you quick access to settings, the different themes for Cortana, your notebook, and more. All of these were previously buried within the bottom navigation bar and it was pretty difficult to get to the important things like Cortana’s settings.
The main feed of Cortana has also been separated into a new Interests section, while the new Upcoming section keeps track of all of your events and more.
The improvements part of the latest Cortana update does look pretty good as it gets rid of the old navigation which was quite hard to navigate. The latest update puts the important things just a swipe away, and that should be appreciated by most users.
You can get the new design for Cortana here from the Google Play Store.
Thanks for the tip, Kolton!
