    Just ask Cortana to convert the temperate, she'll gladly respond.
    Yeah but do you guys know if there is a way for her to show it in celsius when we tap on her icon?
    I know you can ask her to convert it but I want it to show in celsius by deffault...

    I've maximized her capabilities...I even have wake-up times and reminders set...I just wish it was her doing the chiming in and not the standard notification tones. I think it's so awesome when my bosses phone goes off and I hear, over the cubicle "Your daughter is trying to reach you..." or "your wife is trying to reach you." She doesn't repeat it constantly, she just chimes in, vibrates, rattles that line off and that's it. I would expect the same options to be available for other notifications, events etc.

    Great guide! Any idea if there is a way to go back and re-do the initial setup process if we accidentally skipped it?

    I have a Lumia 1020 and I think my Cortana is impaired somehow. I've gone through the whole setup from the beginning and my version of Cortana is nothing like what I've seen from Daniel Rubino or the numerous video out there. For one, almost everything I ask kicks me into Bing. I've also asked all those kind of silly queries, like "Who is your daddy?", "Do you like Clippy?", "Sing me song", or "Tell me a joke." All it does is search Bing. Disappointed.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    That is because of the region. When it is available for Europe you will get it in celcius as default.

    Same here. I'm actually pretty disappointed. She doesn't really say anything. Lumia Icon on Verizon. Fresh install. Everything that I ask just send me to a Bing search. Windows Phone 8 did that!

    Yes, it's because technically this is still US only, so they aren't supporting Celcius. It'll come when other regions are added. Afterall, Celcius conversion is just a simple formula. Not exactly rocket science. But it's more than just Europe. In fact, unless you live in the Bahamas, Belize, the Cayman Islands, Palau or the United States. The official temperature system is in Celcius. Our American friends are really the last hold out against the metric system. You really should change, you're making things a pain up here in Canada. It's bad enough we have to write everything in French and English, but we have to support the old imperial system for American's up here visiting.

    I had the same problem with Cortana routing everything to a bing search and doing none of the witty replies. I think my problem was, during her "absorbing the internet" phase my internet connection got disrupted. Anyway, a hard reset (so loosing any data that wasn't backed up type reset) and now she works just fine. She still seems to run lots of things through Bing, but she is much better and will actually respond with her witty remarks.

    I'm not in the USA. How do I add my current location as my home in Cortana? Searching won't help because really there isn't anything to search. Is there any option to make my exact current location as my home?

    Use the map app to add favorites places. Tap and hold a location on the map, enter to it and hit the star button. This worked for me.

    Considering the fact that I have had almost no sleep working on the issue lends me to think that I have a pretty good idea.

    (translation: I work for Microsoft on this project)

    Invoke Cortana and just say "play <name of playlist> playlist". This works for me. :)
