    As we know Cortana is announced in China & UK as beta & in India it'll come as alpha but I don't know how I'll enable it. Should I change my region to UK or set language as English UK..

    No, the concept for the Alpha is that you don't have to change the region to get Cortana. I guess we will hear soon how we can sign up for the Alpha. Right now there's no further information regarding this from MS.

    You don't need change your region. UK and China get Cortana next week with the 8.1 GDR1. I guess that the GDR1 will have an option to opt in for Cortana in India.

    Cortana for India will be in Alpha. If you cannot use Dev Preview, you don't deserve an Alpha product, either.

    That may be because you don't know what Alpha, beta mean. MS is doing everyone a favour by releasing an OS update well in advance to a certain group of people. People have the "choice" to opt in and get this update of "choose" to wait and get it with everyone else. What don't you agree about this?

    i am telling about why we need to have wp8.1 update one..now still all around the world is using cortana by changing region and language...then why should we need new update to use alpha..alpha is not higher than beta it has less features than beta ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

    We should use alpha here in India as it'll produce a firm base for the further development of Cortana.. And I am not willing to access Cortana by changing my region & language as I'll miss all that region exclusive contents.. Time zone & number formatting
