Microsoft has been making some killer Android apps lately and now it seems the company has come up with another way to have its software replace standard Google apps on Android phones.  MSFT’s virtual assistant Cortana, currently available on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 10, also has an Android beta application that has received a major update. As Android Central reports, Android users can now use Microsoft Cortana to replace Google Now on Android devices.  The move to replace Google Now is certainly daring, as Google’s rival is apparently trying to replace a core functionality of Android, which could turn out to be beneficial for the company.  Using Cortana on an Android device and a Windows 10 computer might make some sense to some smartphone owners, and could help Microsoft generate more revenue from both hardware and ad sales in the future.
