Cortana-578-80Microsoft has removed the Hey, Cortana catchphrase from the Cortana app for Android devices.

Uttering the phrase within earshot of an Android handset could launch Cortana. A bug, however, locked up Google Now on some users’ devices an in some instances impeded the ability to make phone calls.

A recent update to the Android Cortana removes the Hey, Cortana feature and makes several other tweaks, such as improving calling and messaging actions. Microsoft did not say if or when the feature might return.

Cortona is free to download from the Google Play Store.
