Recently, Microsoft announced plans to streamline its cross platform virtual assistant Cortana in a future version of windows 10. The next release will provide a chat based user interface, voice and keyboard support, and features that allow users to view calendars, set reminders, and perform other productivity related tasks.

Microsoft said that as Cortana, a new virtual assistant, enhanced access to these accounts for business and school users,It will remove music, connect home and third-party Cortana application integration, and will end support for Cortana in older versions of windows.

How these updates on Cortana will help users keep up to date, save time and do their best to satisfy them, Andrew Shuman, vice president at Cortana, said in a blog post:

Microsoft also said it plans to shut down its Android home screen experience: the Cortana service in Microsoft launcher by the end of April.

The changes come as Microsoft refocuses Cortana's focus on businesses, particularly for Windows and Office customers. In addition, he has recently acquired the ability to read email abstracts and send quick replies in Outlook, and has arranged meetings and delivered daily schedules and task summaries.
