Microsoft kills Cortana app for Windows 11


Microsoft has finally killed Cortana on Windows 11. The company has disabled the standalone Cortana app on Windows 11 devices. The app now shows a prompt to users that Cortana will stop working by the end of this month.

This step should not surprise anyone because Cortana has not received any new features in the past two years.

Microsoft’s documentation page also confirmed that Windows will no longer support Cortana as a standalone app.

“Starting in August 2023, we will no longer support Cortana in Windows as a standalone app. However, you can still access powerful productivity features in Windows and Edge, which have increased AI capabilities. This means you can still get help with your tasks, calendar, and email, but in new and exciting ways. ” reads Microsoft’s documentation page.

Even if Cortana is going away from Windows, it will keep its presence in applications such as Outlook mobile, Microsoft Teams mobile, Teams display, and Teams Rooms.

“This change only impacts Cortana in Windows, and your productivity assistant, Cortana, will continue to be available in Outlook mobile, Teams mobile, Microsoft Teams display, and Microsoft Teams rooms,” Microsoft’s documentation page explains.

Microsoft introduced Cortana in 2015 with Windows 10. Cortana is a virtual assistant that lets users use voice commands for several tasks such as setting reminders, seeking information, and launching applications. With Windows 11, the company removed Cortant from its position on the taskbar. In 2020, the company discontinued the Cortana app for iOS and Android. Now it has been discontinued from Windows.
