Cortana for Android now lets Windows 10 testers manage notifications on a PC

Microsoft has released an update to Cortana for Android, which enables the support of notification synchronisation between Google's mobile OS and Windows 10. As noted by WinBeta, should you be rocking Cortana on Android, the app will now allow you to have notifications synchronised to both the smartphone and a Windows 10 PC or tablet with the ability to interact with them on both platforms.

It's a pretty neat update for those who enjoy using devices and software from multiple ecosystems but feel they're penalised for not going all out with a single platform. Tom Warren over at The Verge expects to see this functionality released to the public come summer as part of the upcoming Anniversary Update.

Should you happen to own an Android handset and be a Windows 10 tester, be sure to grab the update to the Cortana for Android app from the Play Store. Let us know in the comments if you've been notifying yourself on your PC and Android phone.
