Slut med Cortana på iOS, Android og Invoke

cortana support
Microsoft har i denne uge annonceret, at de lukker ned for sine Cortana applikationer på både Android og iOS-platforme. Support til alle tredjeparts Cortana versioner ophører den 7. september 2002, og i begyndelsen af 2021 stopper Microsoft med at støtte Cortana mobilappen på iOS og Android.

Men Cortana-brugere vil stadig være i stand til at administrere deres kalender og e-mail, deltage i møder og mere via de nye produktivitetsfokuserede tjenester såsom Cortana Windows 10 experience, Cortana-integration i Outlook-mobil og snart Cortana-stemmehjælp i Teams-mobilappen.

Microsoft har også besluttet at afslutte support til Cortana-serviceintegration i Harman Kardon Invoke-højttaleren fra januar 2021.

“We know that most of our customers primarily use the Invoke to play music because of its premium quality sound. To make sure you can keep listening to music or your favorite podcasts, we’ve worked closely with Harman Kardon to create a Bluetooth-enabled device transition plan that we hope will help ease the impact of this change.

Additionally, we are offering the opportunity to receive one Microsoft $50 gift card per active Invoke to the owner of the latest U.S.-based Microsoft account used to set up an Invoke speaker that sent a voice request to the Cortana service after July 31, 2019, and prior to this announcement. “

Microsoft forklarer lidt mere om de kommende ændringer til Cortana:

“Also in 2021, Cortana in Surface Headphones will continue pivoting toward its mission to help customers with productivity throughout their day. While we’ll be removing support for the previous version of Cortana in the first version of Surface Headphones, you’ll still be able to use both versions of Surface Headphones, as well as the new Surface Earbuds, to tap into Cortana via Outlook mobile to manage your inbox and schedule with the Play My Emails feature. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking through this transition and understand that these changes may be disruptive to some of our customers. We look forward to continuing to innovate on ways Cortana can help you navigate the modern workplace so you can save time and focus on the things that matter most in your day.”
