Cortana will come preinstalled on devices with Cyanogen OS
Cortana, the digital assistant of Microsoft, is now available in beta for Android, but next year it will come pre-installed and “deeply integrated” with the next version of Cyanogen OS. Cyanogen OS is a version of Google’s Android operating system and comes with phones Wileyfox, Zuk, Yu and Smartfren. Perhaps you’ve never heard of any of these OEM’s and will not find them in local shops and operators. Cyanogen OS actually came preinstalled on another much known brand OnePlus, but due to disagreements the company decided to make its own version of Android, called Oxygen OS.
CEO of Cyanogen Kirt McMaster is highly confident that Cortana can help Cyanogen OS stand out from Android and iOS, each with its own personal assistant. In 2016 Cyanogen will produce “large devices will be iPhone and Galaxy killers,” said McMaster to International Business Times, and Cortana will work deep in the system, which will allow to control popular third party applications such as Spotify. “Siri does not work with Spotify, so we can do this kind of Cortana integration of Microsoft in the operating system, allowing natural work with Spotify and other services,” says McMaster.
McMaster also says that Cortana is “much better than Siri” – something you would expect from someone who already has an interest in the success of Cortana. “Cortana will help Cyanogen to reach our goal without dependencies on Google”. However, the company will need to expand its partnerships with OEM manufacturers, for which users actually have heard if it wants to succeed in the long term.http://gizbrain.com/2015/09/15/cortana-will-come-preinstalled-on-devices-with-cyanogen-os/https://i0.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Cortana-Cyanogen.jpg?fit=600%2C450https://i0.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Cortana-Cyanogen.jpg?fit=190%2C150TECH NEWSCortana,Cyanogen OS,smartphone,voice assistantCortana, the digital assistant of Microsoft, is now available in beta for Android, but next year it will come pre-installed and 'deeply integrated' with the next version of Cyanogen OS.
