Microsoft does more improvements on android, I think they must focus on windows phone more...
PLAYER SLAYER, 19 Jan 2017Google at least has the decency to wait until you unlock your darn phone!!Google does not need your lock screen. If you are signed into the device with a google account that is all they need. Sometimes depending on the device, Google does not even need that...
Raphi7, 19 Jan 2017You can get a toned-down version in the allo appYeah, no.. I don't wanna use an AI assistant only available in a failing messenger app. lol
AnonD-625786, 19 Jan 2017You don't get the idea of an AI assistant. Stop commenting, please.I get the idea, but it still doesn't support any language you want to use. So the idea of the limited ai, is just useless.

Anonymous, 19 Jan 2017you're not obliged to install an app you don't like so just let it beyes but the problem is there are many apps that comes pre installed on the phones brand that I use and it is getting worse and worse every year. google forces oems to include all their apps In the phones and Microsoft pays oems to include their apps on phones. sadly also rooting is going the wrong way since super su is no longer open source.
Auns K, 19 Jan 2017Yes its a Good idea cortana is good but i think google assistant is a good Both Her GoodGoogle Assistant might be good, but it's only available on Pixel devices. And if you really wanna have Google Assistant, you'll either have to buy a Pixel or root your phone and install it, and not everybody wants to buy a new $600 phone or knows how to root their devices. Plus, Cortana is better than Google Now and Siri, so it's good enough.
Franco, 19 Jan 2017Is this for the next lockscreen app? No, it also works on your default lock screen. No need to install a third party lock screen for it.

PLAYER SLAYER, 18 Jan 2017So now I can be data mined from my lock screen, too? Gee, thanks Microsoft!You're getting data-mined by Google, anyway. lol

Hahahaa
It's like being terminally ill and you get angry that you caught a common cold. Once you are involved with Google, "your everything" is Google's data. No offense, but Google blatantly makes use of all your data, sensor info, emails, pictures, messages, calls, GPS, microphone, camera, storage, everything! They even keep track on your sleep patterns and the routes you follow when you go from point A to point B in the city.
That's why Android fans became the new sheep of the smartphone/tablet market. They just ignore everything else and consider that their decision to choose Android is the best decision they could've made. And once they've jumped in the Android bandwagon, they are there to stay and will diss everything else.
Auns K, 19 Jan 2017Yes its a Good idea cortana is good but i think google assistant is a good Both Her GoodGoogle Assistant is only for pixel
It is not part of stock android
