While the redesign is nothing major, it is a move for the better, with Settings now easier to access and the interface is reduced to two tabs rather than three -- and they are now labelled too! But it doesn’t end there.

The overall look of the app is now cleaner than before. The introduction of a hamburger menu apes the look of other apps, making things far more intuitive. The redesigned Interests and Upcoming tabs are easier to interpret than in previous versions as well.

In terms of new features, Cortana 2.9 includes hands-free calling and texting.

You can download Cortana for Android from Google Play -- if you already have it installed, just check for updates to make sure you have the latest version.
