Microsoft’s Cortana Voice Assistant is about to be shut down for many major markets across the globe including the UK, Canada and Australia for the iOS and Android interface. The app will still be present on Windows machines. The news comes after various support posts in the above-mentioned countries confirmed the same.

While the standalone app will cease to exist, Cortana will be integrated deeper in the Microsoft 365 office apps which would leave the standalone app without much use of its own.

 

Any content in Cortana’s database will still be accessible on Microsoft Windows but not in the app, which will soon be gone and in Microsoft Launcher either. Post-January 31st, Microsoft Launcher will have a new version that will function without the Cortana app.

The name ‘Cortana’ was adapted from the Halo video-game series where Cortana is an artificial intelligence with the same voice as its window’s counterpart.
