The Cortana Beta app for Android users is set to launch in early July, according to the latest word from Microsoft. The app will be released as a companion app to owners of Windows 10 PCs, allowing users to ask Cortana to set reminders and get answers to questions.
As far as we know, anyone and everyone will be able to signup, as Microsoft says nothing about a private or closed beta. Think of it like Microsoft’s Hyperlapse app. It will be a fully working app, but some features may not work properly.
Now, Microsoft’s post doesn’t exactly state that you will need a Windows 10 PC to operate the app, but we doubt it. Instead, you might be limited in terms of what you can do with Cortana, but she will still likely be able to give you reminders about calendar events and give you answers to your search inquiries.
