Cortana may soon be ready to lend her sagely knowledge and wisdom to users of non-Windows Phone platform. Microsoft could soon be ready to unleash Cortana, a digital voice assistant that debuted on Windows Phone, on to competing operating systems to take on the likes of Siri for iOS and Google Now on Android. Though specifics were not disclosed, Microsoft hinted at its plans to free Cortana soon.

Full story from the WindowsCentral blog...

Once again we have something good and Microsoft as always lets other platforms have it..... And yet we hardly get any apps from other platforms... Well done Microsoft...you certainly know how to kill yourself off *slaps head*

Cortana was a real game changer that made Lumia unique... Now they gave it away... We hardly get any good apps and the apps we do get we give away. Totally useless idea from Microsoft

Not sure what there playing at... They usually dominate companies by doing killer apps.... They finally have one and its already given away before most of us actually has it on our platform.

It would be a stupid move, but at the moment it is just a thought so I will reserve my ranting for when it becomes official.

The only logic behind this is to prove that MS has made a personal assistant that can rival Siri and Google Now in its beta stage, but.. What's the point if users won't have to migrate to Windows Phone to have access to Cortana?

I don't understand this. It seems like a VERY bad move from Microsoft.
