Microsoft brings Cortana to Skype on Android and iOS

Microsoft is rolling out its intelligent assistant, Cortana, to the mobile Skype app on Android and iOS. It will be available in two ways. 

First, Cortana on Skype will live inside your chats, and offer useful information based on your chat like restaurant options or movie reviews. It will also suggest smart replies allowing you to respond to any message quickly and easily. Cortana will also automatically recommend you to set up a reminder, when it detects, you're talking about an upcoming events.

In addition, Cortana is also a Contact in Skype, so now you can have natural conversation in one-on-one chats with Cortana, just like you would with friends, family and co-workers. You can ask Cotana for weather update, check flight status, give you a stock quote, suggestion for the best restaurant in your area and more.

Microsoft says that Cortana in Skype will be gradually rolled out starting today to Android and iOS users in the U.S.
