Microsoft announced today that Cortana services will soon be dropped from Microsoft Launcher for Android. Microsoft plans to discontinue Cortana services in Microsoft Launcher by the end of April. The company outline the move in a blog post about some larger changes coming to Cortana.

This move is part of a larger shift in Microsoft's Cortana strategy. Rather than being an assistant across devices, Microsoft is focusing the AI backbone of Cortana towards making people more productive. "This next step in Cortana's evolution will bring enhanced, seamless personal productivity assistance as a free update to the latest version of Windows 10 coming this spring," Microsoft said in today's blog post.

There are further casualties as part of this process, beyond Cortana in Microsoft Launcher. Microsoft also announced that it is dropping Cortana support in versions of Windows 10 that have reached their end-of-service dates, including Windows 10 Mobile. Further, Cortana skills are being dropped entirely.

Eventually, a time will come when Cortana will become like "Samatha", a fictional digital assistant from the  movie "Her (2013)". Microsoft will raise the ante and make it more productive like that of Samantha. People will become even more productive. They will start falling in love with Cortana Then Microsoft will think of raising the ante further and to make people more productive they will make sex dolls named "Cortana X". And in the end they simply shut it down because people has become way too productive and has become environmental risk :tooth:
