Cortana app on Android gets a new refreshed UI in India

| |

In India, Microsoft’s personal assistant, Cortana, has been available as a preview app since a while. It is listed on the Play Store as 'CoA Preview'. The app has just been updated and the latest update (version 2.1.6) sports a refreshed UI.

Available in four color options – purple, blue, green, and grey – the new UI looks beautiful and the bigger text adds to the visual appeal. There’s no hamburger menu now, but there is a grid for quick actions which is a handy way to access all of Cortana’s capabilities. The speech recognition window too has a new design. The performance too is improved, and it is definitely faster and more smooth than before.

Now, you can also create a new account on Cortana using your phone number and SMS. This is a similar approach as has been introduced in Skype Lite which again is made for India.

According to the changelog, the latest update also brings improved location detection to the app.
