    So I updated my Lumia 930 today with the new denim update as here in Australia we are a little slow with the updates. Cortana was always a feature but with the new update we got 'hey cortana' as an added bonus. It does not work. To activate it the region and language settings have to be the same as the language you use in the app. Everywhere else there is an English (Australian) except for this the only options are English (UK) and English (us) so unless I change my phone region to either UK or US I can not use the 'hey cortana' feature which is a bit of a waste as it would be quite useful when walking or driving and using Bluetooth to call or text while otherwise occupied. Does anyone else find this a bit unnecessary to be part of the update, a non functioning addition just teasing us while others have the privlige of using an awesome feature? 😔

    Actual you can use it in Australia
    Please see below how to set it.

    And disabled Hey Cortana world wide until it's locally available every where is much much worse.

    My settings match all settings are correct yet it still doesn't seem to register. The alpha version works but the beta version just didn't seem to want to be my friend 😒
