Cyanogen rolls out ‘deeply integrated’ Cortana India update to OnePlus One users

Cyanogen has started sending out a new update for OnePlus One in India. This update brings new features such as Microsoft’s Cortana – a voice-based virtual assistant. The update is for OnePlus One handsets running Cyanogen OS 13.1 in India. The company states that the ‘Cortana India update’ will initiate installation whenever the device is connected to a Wi-Fi.

On its blog post, Cyanogen said,“We’re happy to announce that we’re launching Cortana in India on Cyanogen OS first. OnePlus One owners running 13.1 in India can now take advantage of all of the awesome features available from Cortana.”

Contrary to Cortana for Android, the Cyanogen version is “deeply integrated” into the OS, which would allow OnePlus One users to get tasks completed via voice commands. Among many cool functions that the Cortana performs, it can set alarm, switch on Wi-Fi connection, perform a search, and much more. To recap, the Cortana integration was rolled out to the OnePlus One in January for Cyanogen OS 12.1.1. In its initial rollout phase, the update was given to users in the US and China.

Other than the usual features in Cortana, Cyanogen has also added the new Cortana mod for functions such as Camera and Lock Screen. This inclusion enables users to pass voice commands for clicking a selfie or perform a search from the lock screen.
