Can I make Cortana work on my Microsoft Band that is paired with an iPhone 6?
I have an iPhone 6+ and a Microsoft band. I paired them successfully but want Cortana as well. I downloaded the Cortana app from itunes and it works on the phone. How can I make it work on the band?
Unfortunately, Cortana will not get access to the API set (Application Program Interface) that Siri occupies on iOS. On Windows Phone Cortana has that level of control, but on iOS or Android it would be reserved for their in-house assistant (Siri/OK Google).
When Band wants to exercise voice command it has to use the default Assistant.
Does that mean Microsoft could add Siri support until such time that Cortona can be supported?
I think it is more a Phone Side issue. Otherwise Microsoft would have to issue an iSpecific model. Right now one device serves across platforms.
