Microsoft Cortana arrives at the iPad

After being launched with a clear commitment to mobile phones in order to rival Siri and Google Now, which were its competitors at first, Cortana, Microsoft's digital assistant has been evolving and adapting to new ways of use as has passed the time. Today breaks that barrier again with another new platform, in this case, Cortana finally arrives at the iPad with a series of changes that make it an interesting alternative .

For many users, Cortana will not be an unknown at this point. Either because at some point they have run into one of their ads on computers with Windows 10, or because of the famous saga of video games Halo, from which its name is born. Even so, Microsoft does not end up being completely satisfied with the performance its product is having, and that's why they want it to reach as many people as possible, including users of Apple's tablets.

From now on, users from the countries where Cortana for iOS is available (USA, China and Japan) will be able to download a new version with an interface created especially for this screen format. It has also been improved by 25% the speed with which the app is launched so that we can talk to Cortana in the fastest way possible. All this, together with the synchronization functions with Windows 10 for PC, make the assistant an all-rounder.

However, it is not yet clear whether it will be enough to recover what has already been lost in the face of these alternatives, taking into account that it still lacks something fundamental: integration with the operating system . As you know, Apple does not allow third-party apps to have the same level of permissions as their own apps, to the extent that the hardware is a direct access to them, and this will not change, at least in the near future , which is going to hinder Microsoft enough.

And you, do you use any digital assistant?
