    Hello I am in the uk on the developer preview for windows 8.1 update 1 and Cortana in the uk doesn't seem to be integrated into apps like Skype and Facebook so I can't say "Facebook what's up with..." and "Skype call..." etc. I was wondering if this is a bug or if the feature will be coming soon?

    Hey! Cortana in the UK is currently in alpha stage which means that the functionality will increase over time but its still in the testing stages. Have a little patience and the app integration will come in time.

    UK Cortana is a Beta not an Alpha, same as the US

    I thought Cortana in the UK was listed as being in alpha stages. Check the articles on the front page but I know its in alpha in China etc. This is why you can only get Cortana through the developer preview using WP8.1 Update 1.

    Which article says it is Alpha in UK

    Microsoft announces Cortana for China, UK with 'alpha' status for India, Australia, and Canada | Windows Phone Central

    UK & China as Beta. India, Canada & Australia as Alpha

    Cortana on my UK phone currently states it is Beta at the top

    I'm big enough to admit it when I'm wrong. Seems Cortana is classed as being in beta in the UK but it must be an early beta. Either way in time we should see greater app integration.

    You had me confused there for a minute and I had to double check :)

    Agreed about give it time, once its available non DP it should get much better
