Cortana receives update that fixes accidental opt-out bug

Microsoft has released an update for Cortana, its personal assistant, that fixes a couple of bugs and introduces a few features.

One of the main annoyances of Cortana over the last few days has been accidental opting out. That is fixed in version 3.71 of the app which is currently available on the Play Store to users of the app.

Part of the new features added to the app include the ability for users to edit their notification settings as well as editing places in the settings section of the app.

Cortana has been on the Android platform since August 2015 when Microsoft introduced it as a beta before its eventual full rollout the following year. Still, the app is restricted region-wise and users in places like Kenya still have to rely on third party sites to access it.

An upcoming update to Cortana on Android (and other platforms as well) will see the personal assistant start reminding users of things they said they would do in email conversations making it even smarter than it already is.
