Why No Cortana In My Region?

Sunday, July 24th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Windows 10

A reader wants to know why Cortana isn’t available where he lives yet. “I would like to ask why Cortana is not available in Saudi Arabia. I have downloaded windows 10 and tried to activate Cortana but it tells me it is not available in this Country, is there a special reason why not or is it just a case of a not downloaded correctly.”

There could be a variety of reasons why Cortana is not available, most likely that they are still working on getting her ability to converse in the language right. But there may be a way to work around that.

Type Change country & language settings into your search box and click on the result.


Or click Settings on your Start menu.


Choose Time & Language


Then choose Region & language.


From the drop-down menu beneath Country or region, you can select a country that has Cortana like the U.S.


Cortana will only be able to speak to you in the languages available for the region you’ve selected. Switching the region may also affect other aspects of your Windows 10 experience as well. Microsoft aims content towards you based on where you’re located, so you could miss out on content others in your region are receiving.
