Microsoft Band 2 will Integrate with Cortana on iOS and Android

There is a question. For me, it’s the oldest question in the universe, but it’s hidden in plain sight.

If you’ve ever used a Microsoft Band, you know that Cortana works great on it, but all of those features are missing if the Band is paired with an iPhone or an Android phone. Now that Cortana is coming to Android and iOS, will the Band integrate with those, even though they’re separate apps?

Last night at the Microsoft event, I was able to confirm that yes, Band 2 will integrate with Cortana on iOS and Android. I wasn’t able to confirm whether the original Band would do the same, but I don’t see why not.

        Any idea of if and when this might happen??

        • If? Yes. When? No idea. It was supposed to be when the public Cortana for iOS and Android came.
