    Did you change your region to US?

    Language -> English (India)
    Region -> India
    Speech -> English (united kingdom)
    You need to download united kingdom speech.. Size around 23 mb..
    With these settings you will get Cortana in India (alpha)

    Cortana voice is more robotic in alpha..

    Region = US
    Language = English US
    speech = English US
    Match phone language for Regional Format
    You will need to restart each time you change any one of the options(it demands you anyway :P )
    So after 3 restarts you will be able to see cortana in your app list along with quiet hours and other features in your settings

    You have to change your region to US to use Cortana!

    You don't have to change your region to US. Just change your language and speech to English UK. It would work. I have done the same and its working

    No.. Cortana is available in India as alpha version.. So no need of changing region.. Only changing speech to united kingdom works
