Cortana for Windows

On Windows phones, Cortana offers features similar to Siri and Google Now on Apple and Android phones and is now available on Google Play after you select the ‘become a beta tester’ option. Windows users, will still enjoy a few features that the Android beta version users don’t: while it supports voice texting and performs web searches in response to voice queries, you can’t toggle your apps or start up your hands-free with a ‘Hey Cortana!’

Instagram  update

Instagram is letting users upload photos and vidoes in both portrait and landscape formats, in addition to its signature square. According to a post on its official blog, one in every five posts that people shared through the site weren’t square, which is what prompted the change. So now, the photos you upload will be visible in their full size to others while it will appear centred in a square on your profile. Instagram versions 7.5 for iOS and Android are available on iTunes and Google Play.

Saavn on Windows

The free app brings all the features of Android and iOS to Windows 10 devices and adds support for live tiles as well. Phones will get the app after Microsoft comes out with Windows 10 ones. Currently, this is not available in the Pro version and doesn’t support social features.
