With the latest update for the Microsoft Launcher, Cortana became a part of it. Nevertheless, only people in a few English speaking countries have direct access to Cortana in the Microsoft Launcher. If you are living in a different country but also want use Cortana you need to follow these steps:
- Press and hold the home screen until the selection menu opens
- Select on Start Program
- Go to General Settings
- Change the language from System to English
Now Cortana should work for you. Just pin Cortana to the home screen and use it.
Sadly, Microsoft is once again ignoring all countries that are not English speaking but there is still hope that Cortana will once officially find her way to more countries.
If you have not downloaded the Microsoft Launcher for Android, you can do so here.
