Microsoft recently worked on Cortana for Android. The app received a major overhaul with version 2.0 in December and added support for the lock screen in March. Cortana 2.9 has just been released, which changes the user interface again.
At least for me the previous design was a bit confusing. The settings page was tucked away in the user’s settings, and the app’s functionality was split across three tabs. The new design brings back the hamburger menu and reduces the app to two tabs. One is for upcoming events, such as reminders and calendar events, and the “Interests” tab is similar to Google Feed (with recommended news, nearby restaurants, etc.).
The settings page has also been given a makeover, which definitely looks like an improvement. Finally, the app changelog mentions that hands-free calling and texting is new, but I can call and text people with the keyword “Hey Cortana” on the previous version. Either way, you can download it from the Play Store now, or get it from APKMirror.
