  This shutdown was originally announced back in July of 2020 as the company confirmed that Cortona’s focus will now be on an AI assistant for Microsoft. A Microsoft support note spotted by MacRumors states that “As we announced in July, we will soon be ending support for the Cortana app on Android and iOS, as Cortana continues its evolution as a productivity assistant”.

Microsoft launched Cortana for iOS and Android in December of 2015. The dreams attached to Cortana were many. Microsoft had once envisioned the future of Cortana in powered fridges, toasters, and thermostats, however, that dream came to end way too soon earlier this month when the first and only Cortana speaker removed Microsoft’s digital assistant.
