Microsoft Cortana Adds Support for Google Accounts
Microsoft has quietly rolled out a new feature on their personal assistant Cortana that Android users will appreciate. Now in Microsoft Cortana, you can set up the assistant to have access to your Google account, allowing it to access both your Google calendar as well as your contacts. Previously calendars and contacts were limited to Office 365 accounts or to an Outlook.com account.
The addition of Google services means that users of Cortana on their Android phone, PC or their Harman Kardon Invoke, will be able to ask Cortana about events on their Google Calendar or make a call to a Google Contact, a likely scenario for Android users.
As you would expect, this new integration requires that you connect your Google account to Cortana and authorize it. This is done via Connected Services which can be found in your Cortana Notebook section of the app or on your PC.
