Cortana allegedly launching in China on July 30

Last week, we reported that Microsoft is close to launching Cortana in the UK and China, with a release scheduled for later this month. While no official date was provided by Microsoft, we are now hearing that the voice assistant will make its debut in China on July 30.

Cortana China launch invite

According to invites sent out to the Chinese media, Microsoft will be hosting a Cortana launch event in Beijing next week. The invitation for the event includes a Windows Phone placard with Cortana logo and the words "China, here I come" underneath.

Along with China, Microsoft is scheduled to bring the voice assistant to users in the UK. Before you guys inevitably ask us as to when Cortana will hit India, all that we know regarding the matter is that there is no launch date yet, and that Microsoft is actively working on bringing the service to customers in the subcontinent soon.

Users from the UK and China, are you excited about the imminent launch of Cortana in your country?
