Microsoft: Say 'Goodbye' to Cortana App in 2020



Microsoft says it'll discontinue the Cortana app for iOS and Android devices starting in January. The digital assistant will shift to operate as a built-in feature on Microsoft's existing services.

  • By Justin Herrick

  • Cortana will exit iOS and Android next year. Microsoft has confirmed in a support page that it'll pull the digital assistant as a standalone app from both platforms on January 31, 2020. Not all countries will lose Cortana immediately, however.

    When the aforementioned date hits, Microsoft will no longer offer the Cortana app in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany, Mexico, China, Spain, and India. The entire list of countries doesn't appear on the support page, but Microsoft confirmed all of them to The Verge. It should be a sign that additional countries will lose support throughout next year.

    The standalone app lets Cortana listen to voice commands and respond through its knowledge graph or integrated third-party services. It tried competing with Siri on iOS and Google Assistant on Android, but Cortana failed to gain traction. Now, it'll be transitioned to a built-in feature on Microsoft's other products.
