Ah, digital assistants. Every fortune 500 has one, but how do they stack up?

Fortunately for Microsoft, Cortana has been being tested and updated for quite a while now, and has been on just about every major platform for the past year in some sort of beta or major release. After one such prolonged beta on Android and iOS, Cortana is finally getting to see the light of day in the form of a full release.

According to Microsoft, the most notable features of the assistant include:

  • Set and get location and time reminders across your PC and phone.

  • Track packages, flights, scores, stocks, and other important info across your PC and phone.

  • Use Cortana’s Notebook to view, edit and manage your interests

  • Get information and answers to all kinds of questions. If you’re looking for it, Cortana can help find it.

  • Have a little fun in your down time — ask anything, get jokes, and much more.

You can pick up Cortana right now via the Google Play Store or the App Store.
