Cortana expands to new markets later this year
Support for more languages will be coming in Q4 2015
Cortana in Windows 10 will officially debut in seven countries on July 29. Users from the U.S., U.K., China, France, Italy, Germany and Spain will be able to use Cortana on their devices from day one, while more countries and languages will be joining the party in the coming months.
Microsoft will soon expand the supported locations and languages for users who are on the Windows Insider program. Before the end of 2015, Cortana will debut on Windows 10 Preview builds in new countries – Canada (in English and French), Japan, Australia, Brazil and Mexico.
To offer a unique experience to each country and language, Microsoft has taken into account all specific differences between the nations in terms of humor, politeness and habits.
With Windows 10 launching next week on PCs, later this year on phones, and with the upcoming Cortana apps for Android and iOS, Microsoft hopes to make Cortana mainstream and put it in the homes of millions of users. Are you excited?
