Microsoft Cortana is your smart personal assistant. She helps you keep track of your most important stuff, across all your devices. Cortana responds to your voice and has an answer for what you need. Cortana wants to know your favorite things. Tell Cortana your favorite artists or sports teams, and she will give you timely and relevant updates. Cortana helps you stay on top of things, 24 hours a day: - The latest news stories, served fresh and personalized to your interests. - Track your important flights and incoming packages. - Calendar awareness. If traffic is a mess and you need to leave home early to make that meeting, Cortana has got your back. - Reminders based on location. Have Cortana remind you to buy groceries when you drive past the local supermarket. - Reminders based on commitments. Have Cortana remind you to follow up when you promise someone something over email. Here are some things that you can say to Cortana: - "Remind me to buy groceries." - "Start a shopping list." - "Tell me something interesting." - "Bitcoin to USD." - "What's my schedule today?" - "Where's the nearest Starbucks?" - "What's up?" - "Will it rain this weekend?" Cortana is constantly learning, with new capabilities being released every month. We encourage you to give Cortana a try and share your feedback with us.



  • Logs you out of Microsoft Authenticator

    By TruBluDevil
    There’s a bug with version 2.6.13 that when you upgrade, it will wipe out your account in Microsoft Authenticator. Be forewarned if you also use that app.
  • Used to be awesome, but is now useless

    By NacnudMit
    I have used Siri, Google Assistant, and Cortana. Cortana used to handily beat Siri, and usually beat Google. But this latest update is useless. All it does is say "I can't connect at the moment. Please try again in a little bit." There is good WiFi connection yet this happens. If I uninstall and reinstall it works once, then stops. I've reported this to Microsoft but they aren't listening.
  • No longer works

    After the most recent update 2.6.12 I have to reinstall every day or it might have me sign in again.
  • Pretty limited on iPhone

    By bensgroi
    Latest version (2.6.12) resets my data and makes me log back in once a day, which is very frustrating. Otherwise, it’s fine. Coming from Windows Phone, Cortana on iPhone isn’t of much use.
  • F siri

    By Mahyar.Mehrjoo
    That’s the best assistant you can get by far. I tried all of them and Cortana is the best.
  • Problems

    By natespapa09
    I am a longtime windows user and wanted to use Cortana on my iPhone. When it works, it’s really nice. I kept getting a message that she cannot connect and to try again later. Google assistant would be working fine at the same time, so I know it wasn’t the phone. I would like to use Cortana, but Google has never let me down, so until someone can help me figure out the problem I will stick with Google.
  • Upset about latest version 2.6.12 (Late July 2018)

    By rbow-Z28
    Dear Microsoft, Your latest version for Cortana; (Version 2.6.12) on July 6th, has completely broken the Cortana app; making it totally unusable. I've used the Cortana in my daily routine, on Windows 10, Android, and the iOS app for *very a long time. By now, I am familiar enough the app, and know when there's an issue with any of the Cortana skills, services, functions, ect. Your update for the Cortana app on released for the iPhone in July 6th; causes Cortana to quit working after a short period of time. In this version, when opening the Cortana app, I am often finding myself unable to ask Cortana questions. Or becoming complety signed out of the application. After a short period, I'll launch open Cortana and proceed to speak a question into the search box or type out a question; when all the sudden, all of Cortana's web-based services quit working. (These include: Reminders, Suggested Reminders, Search results, & Calander.) Before you blame Apple or a someone's iPhone; (as many Microsoft Tech support personnel try to do) I've used Cortana for **very a long time. By now, I definitely know when there's an issue with any of the services. This includes *Enabled Cortana skills, .I reach to developers whenever a Cortana skill doesn't function properly. It's been my experience, most third party developers for Cortana care as much about their skills and service working,as I do about being able to use them. I found on more than one occasion, I suddenly cannot communicate with Cortana for no apparent reason. In summary: I can confirm Cortana app: 1) stops giving responses, 2) ceases to work entirely after a period of time, 3) signs user out of application; Microsoft account I know when the Cortana app has become completely unresponsive, so I exited the out the app, powered off my iPhone, signed out of my associated Microsoft account, and reinstalled the app. * I've reinstalled Cortana (5) times now. ** Yes Microsoft, the Cortana app is *still* broken after all of the alternatives listed above. It doesn't solve any of this ....😡 None of these methods of troubleshooting; solve the issues previously mentioned. This confirms there is no doubt; an underlining issue with the update you've released for the Cortana app since July 2018 . So please Microsoft: Take the feedback seriously, listen to a customer's input & do something about it please. If you care about a customer, you'll have your developers under the Cortana "umbrella" push out another update to fix this.
  • Cortana no longer works

    This version won’t connect, all other apps connect fine
  • Replaced Siri and Alexa

    By JamesTSmirk
    Cortana seems to “get it” most of the time when Siri or Alexa are confused by the same questions. I used to really like the Windows phone interface and integration, now the best “Windows phone” is an iPhone with the right apps.
  • Location reminders

    By sgamer
    I asked it to remind me at a location to do something and it only does a Bing search.
