Cortana for Android updated to 1.9.5; adds photo reminders, cross-device support

A week after Cortana got updated for iOS to add support for adding photos to reminders, Android has now received the same update, also bringing Cortana's version up to 1.9.5.

The feature was originally made available to Windows Insiders in Preview build 14322, and is still to officially roll out with the Anniversary Update starting from August 2 for non-Insiders.

Here's what has been added to Cortana for Android:

  • Now you can add a photo to a reminder. Try “Hey Cortana, remind me to pick this up at the store” and add your photo.
  • Cortana can remember what you tell her and recall it on demand, across all your devices.

Now, Cortana will remember what you tell "her" and recall that info from all of your devices; indeed, syncing across all of your devices is one of the key strengths of Microsoft's platform. Users can set a reminder from their Android device and then be reminded while using their PC, or vice versa.

The update is live now. You can grab Cortana for Android right here from the Google Play Store.
