Full technology is called Phone Companion App.
The Cortana will be released as a common application in Google Play and the App Store . With a tap on the icon, it can be activated and used with voice commands and everything, like the default personal assistant system. Notifications will also be present, but some functions are unique to Windows Phone like the line “Hey Cortana” to activate it without using your hands, open apps or change system settings. The app will be available on Google Play for Android in June 2015 and for iphone till the end of the year.
In Windows phones, connectivity is more complete and simplified, without requiring additional configuration by the user.
