In the YouTube video introducing the “phone companion” app that will be on Windows 10 PCs to help users install Cortana on their devices, Microsoft seemingly confirmed that Cortana will be coming to iOS and Android devices later this year. The video also shows off Cortana on both Android and iOS, which will look similar to the Windows counterpart and can answer the same queries across devices.
But what really caught my attention in the video (above) was the following line at the end of the video:
“We’re going to ensure that Windows 10 works great with whatever device you have.”
This is exactly what Microsoft needs to focus on going forward. Build great software that runs well everywhere. Now if only they would kill Windows Phone/Mobile all together…
What do you think?
