Cortana for Android updated with support for “Hey Cortana”

Ever since Microsoft announced that Cortana would launch for Android back in 2015, the app has seen a plethora of updates. Today, another one of those updates has just hit the Google Play store and it adds in support for “Hey Cortana.”

Overall, the update not only includes support for “Hey Cortana”, but also a new look for speaking to Cortana and when getting a response to a phrase, as well as a new look for the startup screen (with a microphone now appearing on the bottom in all instances.)
