Cortana Leaving iOS and Android: Microsoft to Discontinue App in January

Master Chief’s AI companion hasn’t been very successful with the mobile phone crowd. Microsoft has announced that it will be removing the Cortana app for both iOS and Android devices on January 31 for users in the UK, Australia, Germany, Mexico, China, Spain, Canada, and India. Cortana will live on in other Microsoft products, such as Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 productivity apps.

It’s not clear how much longer the Cortana for iOS and Android app will continue to operate in the US after January 31st. A Microsoft spokesperson simply tells us that currently it’s still supported in the US. The full support note also reveals that Cortana will be disappearing from Microsoft’s Android Launcher app after January 31st in the affected markets.
