TechRadar has reported that for a long while now, Microsoft has been trying to get users to install its apps for iOS and Android rather than pushing Windows Mobile as an OS. The latest update to Cortana for Android means the digital assistant app can now take the place of Google Assistant as the default smart AI on your phone. As spotted by Android Police, the app can now walk you through the process of associating Cortana with a long-press on the home button. You'll be asked if you want to make it the default when launching the app for the first time, and if you say yes, you get taken to the app configuration screen in Android's settings.That screen lets you change the default app for web browsing, for SMS messaging, and now for giving you instant help with a multitude of queries. iOS doesn't let you change the default apps like this, of course, so for the time being you're stuck with Siri if your current phone of choice is an iPhone.
