Cortana is coming to Android’s lock screen 

This updated version will give you access to Cortana by a single swipe. Microsoft is already testing this new feature as part of a beta program which will be coming out in a few weeks.

After the new update is installed, you have the option to enable Cortana on your lock screen. The Cortana logo will then be added to the bottom of your screen. By swiping left or right you can access the panel to get updates and ask Cortana anything you want to.

The good, with this update you don’t need to have a special app to make this work, it will work on the current lock screen of Android devices. The bad side, by having Cortana on your lock screen it will give access to anyone to get your data without unlocking your phone.

Hopefully, Microsoft will add a feature to hide sensitive data from Cortana on the lock screen, as of now this is not available in the beta update.
