As we announced in July, we will be ending support for the Cortana app on Android and iOS soon as Cortana continues to evolve as a productivity assistantMicrosoft said in an update.
The company first launched Cortana for iOS and Android in December 2015.
The app was designed to connect Windows 10 PCs and mobile phones, but failed to gain momentum when Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri won the race.
According to Microsoft, user-created Cortana content, like reminders and lists, will no longer work in the Cortana mobile app, but will still be accessible through Cortana in Windows.
Additionally, Cortana reminders, lists, and tasks automatically sync with the Microsoft To Do app, which users can download to their phones for free.
“After March 31, 2021, the Cortana mobile app on your phone will no longer be supported,” Microsoft said.
In 2019, the company first retired the Cortana app for iOS from a number of regions.
Last year, Microsoft said it would put productivity at the center of the digital assistant, and as part of the change, its digital assistant Cortana would lose some of its more consumer-oriented features, such as the ability to read. music and control smart home devices.
