Some time back, Microsoft announced its grand plans of bringing Cortana (Windows Phone’s virtual voice assistant) to Windows desktops and even on rival smartphone platforms. We have already witnessed Cortana functioning in the technical build of Windows 10 OS and now, Cortana seems almost ready for Android smartphones.

While the company is yet to officially release Cortana on Android, a leaked APK file of the same has already leaked online. Few of the prominent websites did a signature verification of the same and confirmed that the APK file is legit and hasn’t been tampered with.

For those who have had used Cortana in the past will feel right at home, however, for others, the app will take some time to get to business. Users will have to sign in with a Microsoft account, key in a nickname and obviously agree to the terms laid down.

Those who tried the app were quite impressed as it understands queries just as its Windows Phone counterpart. Hence, the next time you feel down, simply ask Cortana to tell a joke!
