India to get an updated version of Cortana with Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Microsoft is set to roll out an updated version of Cortana to India with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The update will be available for free to Windows 10 users over the summer.

In an interview with Economic Times, Program Manager for Cortana Marcus Ash revealed that Microsoft is focused on "getting it right" for its "most important countries," which include India, China, and Japan.

There are all these different languages and regional dialects. That's the thing they are starting to think about... how to expand (to other languages).

The new version of Cortana will also be available in the U.S., the UK, China, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Mexico and Brazil. Microsoft showed off improvements to Cortana at Build, highlighting the Cortana Intelligence Suite, a framework that leverages big data, machine learning, and analytics to build intelligent bots that will be able to understand natural language input.
