    Is it just me? Or Cortana seems to be not responding to things that she used to last time?
    Like "hello", "sing me a song", "tell me a joke".
    All it does it brings me to a web search.

    Is Microsoft doing something to their back end?

    Working for me too, though the joke is worthy only of a cheap Christmas cracker:

    I had that problem after a phone reset. Turns out, Cortana was turned off. Go into settings and turn Cortana on.

    The thing is, I've checks it in 4 different phone, L520, L820, L720 and this L930 all seem to have the same problem. She just ain't doing all the stuff she used to.

    But Cortana as a assistance is working. She still does the things I ask her. Only the humors/fun to have part of her seems to be gone.

    Could it be, that Microsoft rolled out some region blocking settings on their back end?

    Could be a regional issue. I'm in the US. What region are you in?

    I think rhapdog is right, it's probably a regional issue. Something going on with the Bing back end that isn't allowing to work. I just asked Cortana to tell me a joke, and she did. I am in the US as well.

    Still making me laugh here, although today I didn't ask her to tell me a joke... I merely hesitated after saying 'Cortana'.

    I do sometimes find Cortana directs EVERY question to Bing and sometimes she'll just crash out for no reason, but recently she's been much better. I guess it's all part of the beta.

    I am in East Malaysia. I tried both US & UK Cortana on my L525 and I find the UK Cortana talks more. The US Cortana gives me web result most of the time.

    Ohh then this must be a regional issue then. There is no other reason for everyone in Asia region to face such problem and other regions as US and Europe have to no have this problem.

    Is it possible that you fell off 3G to 2G and she needs bandwidth to be witty?

    Just a guess...

    No it can't be. I'm using wifi at home and she is still not working. I even switched off my wifi and it still not working.

    But I confirm that she is working in town. I just tried it.
