    I see many have questions about Cortana working outside US and China? - No

    Official blogpost from microsoft states as below:

    "......And will be available in the U.S. on One Plus One powered by Cyanogen OS with the 12.1.1 over-the-air update later in Dec......."


    One solutions is download the cortana apk from www.apkmirror.com.
    Dont forget to turn off location services while using cortana or else she turn off for other countries.

    Try living in Portugal instead of Canada, then. ;)
    Since Cortana is based on voice commands, it makes sense that they only rollout to the US first. Siri and Google Now also started small. They have to make sure the voice assistant actually understands you. :p

    Obviously it'll take time to integrate the dialect from other regions also for Cortana to understand.

    There's this thing called accents...? English accents vary wildly between the several countries that speak the language.

    I'm just using the Cortana app which is pre-installed now but it's works perfectly even though I live in Germany.

    Pretty much like Chinese: you have 'English' and 'English Simplified' :p

    Why China? China will ban cortana soon and make some chinglish alternative to cortana.

    When you say working perfectly... does it actually follows commands, I cant even get it to call someone for me
