Microsoft’s Cortana personal assistant continues to play an important role in Microsoft’s cross-platform strategy. While Cortana runs best on Windows 10 in terms of being the most integrated, and runs a close second on Android, the machine intelligence still provides some useful functionality on the more closed iOS.
Today, Microsoft pushed a new update for Cortana on the iPhone, adding some new functionality and fixing some issues. Here’s the changelog for version 1.5.5:
- The ability to launch some popular apps with your voice
- An improved homepage loading experience
