Microsoft quietly confirmed today what Cortana will look like on iOS and Android devices later this year in a YouTube video introducing the “phone companion” app.

Cortana on both Android and iOS will look similar to their Windows counterparts and can answer the same queries across devices. On Android, you’ll also see integration with the operating system for reminders and other alerts.

A companion app on Windows 10 PCs will offer to help users install Cortana on their devices.

Cortana on iOS and Android can’t do things that are possible on Windows Phone, however, like toggle settings.

Today’s video is only an early look at the upcoming apps, which will be available for Android in June and iOS later this year.
