European users getting ready for Cortana’s arrival
A Director at Microsoft France reveals that Cortana is on the way to France, and users should expect the French version of Microsoft’s voice assistant to become available in the next couple of months.
Earlier reports suggested that Redmond was working on enabling Cortana for more countries, starting from major European markets. Microsoft has already launched special Cortana webpages in different languages like Dutch, French, Spanish, German and more, which is a hint that the service may well go global shortly. Today, Cortana is working only in the US, UK, China, Australia, Canada, and India.
