Cortana, a Microsoft based personal assistant. By the name of Microsoft you might probably guessed that it top class. Cortana is giving competition to Siri and google assistant. It is now available in mobile devices too as Microsoft is expanding Cortana’s reach to smartphone users. 

Firstly, you can ask any question and the app will find it for you on the internet within seconds (depending on your internet connection – just kidding). In addition, it can also set reminders (so that you never get late on your meetings or forgot any special occasions) or manage checklists you have made on your notes about something important. 

Secondly, it uses the geolocation system on your phone to give your reminders based on your location, so you can simply set up a place where you need to visit for work and whenever you are near to that place it will notify you about that place.

Isn’t she smart, Cortana can funnily interact with you and can answer all your silly questions. In addition to that she can help you with the latest updates as well as traffic updates so that you save your time and get a better route to your destination. She is a fully packed virtual assistant with good performance and ratings as well. You should try it on your device and comment on your experience.
