Cortana Can Now Be A Default Assistant On Android

Microsoft is now rolling out a new software update for its digital virtual assistant on Android and if you are not a fan of Google Assistant and want to use Cortana instead, then you need to install this update. Cortana for Android can finally be set as a default Android digital assistant.

This means that a long press on the home button will trigger Cortana instead of Google Assistant, but unfortunately, there is no functionality that lets you launch Cortana by voice, at least not yet. To set Cortana as default assistant, just install the latest version from Google Play and once you launch it, you get an option to set Cortana as the default assistant.
