Since Microsoft announced that its digital assistant Cortana was going to be a cross platform app in May, it has gone ahead to roll it out on Android at least in Beta and is now allowing testers to access the iOS version of the app. In a report by Tech news site Warenotice, ” Microsoft first began allowing users to sign up to get the Cortana for iOS beta a few weeks ago, when it published a survey for Windows Insiders interested in the beta to fill out. If you would like to download the Cortana for iOS beta but are yet to complete the survey, you can fill it out here.
At the moment, its open to only 2000 testers which is the maximum number allowed by Apple for such tests which can run or up to 60 days.
Tech firms have continued to leverage on the platforms of their competitors to roll out services. Besides Cortana, Apple’s Music streaming app will be available for Android users soon while services like Google Maps are constantly being updated within the app store to compete with the Apple preinstalled map.
