Earlier this month, Microsoft officially launched its Cortana digital assistant for Android devices, but one feature is causing lots of issues. The company decided to remove the “Hey Cortana” feature, at least in the US market.
There isn’t yet any official statement form the company, but according to some sources the “Hey Cortana” feature was having conflicts with the device’s microphone.
“Hey Cortana” is supposed to allow users to speak into their phone to get answers from Cortana, but since the release of Cortana for Android many users have reported that it has broken their microphone and disabled the “Ok Google”
Another source also say that the “Hey Cortana” feature wouldn’t work properly on Android, which is largely because of developer restrictions.
Besides the removal of “Hey Cortana”, the updated Cortana app also has some unspecified enhancements for its call and text features, along with improvements in its app stability.
