Canadian users will be able to access Cortana (albeit in alpha form) once the Lumia 830 launches in the country later this month.
Although Microsoft announced that Cortana localization for Canada would be ready by the time Windows Phone 8.1 started rolling out, the voice assistant was only available in select countries. The software maker later announced that several markets would be getting an alpha version of the voice assistant, which is what is rolling out with the Lumia 830 in Canada.
Cortana will be available on more devices in the country once they start receiving the Lumia Denim update. As for availability, the Lumia 830 is slated to launch on major carriers and retailers.
Canadian readers, what Cortana feature are you looking forward to the most?
