    Hi,
    I have got a question on Cortana and favorite places. I have set up a few reminders concerning leaving and entering places but Cortana never reminds them. She knows perfectly well where I am, where my home, work, office, friends are. Her reply to my "Where am I" is right every time. For example. "Remind me to buy some milk when I leave my office". She replies correctly, shows me the correct address of my office but when the action set up by here before commenses, nothing happens. Any clue? I am from the Czech Republic, Europe.

    She understands my commands concerning navigating such as "get me back home or drive me to my office, etc, etc". Nokia Here+ is loaded, the route planned. Awesome. BUT she never reminds me what I want to be reminded when I leave or enter places.

    Thank you.

    Patience, an Xbox Music update will be out Tuesday to fix playlists with Cortana for good.

    Thank you for giving me the information =)

    Do you know something about not Cortana but Wi-Fi turning on nearby my favorite places? I saw a post about setting reminders nearby my favorite places and its fantastic =) but when you turn Wi-Fi off you have the option to turn it on again in 1 hour, 4 hours, 1 day, manually AND near my favorite places... It just doesn't work =/
    Thank you very much.

    Based on my usage since the first day WP 8.1 2 was launched, the battery is draining very quickly than before the update.
    And since then, I've tried to turn off the location services to see how long my phone will last and the result was awesome! The phone lasts longer than with location services turned on.

    But, when the location services is turned off, Cortana doesn't want to start.

    Can Cortana be usable without location services? Such as make some appointment or something that doesn't related to any location services.

    I hope it will come to the next update of Cortana someday.

    Btw, Cortana is pretty awesome!

    Is anyone else having trouble getting Cortana to play music? She keeps telling me that I need to turn on streaming music for it to work, but I already have it turned on.

    Make sure Cortana is enabled in the settings, and that location services are available. Cortana currently REQUIRES location services to function.

    Also make sure the language + region setting changes are going through. You MUST press the restart button that appears after you make the change in the menu. Restarting via the power button, or leaving the menu before pushing the button will cause the changes to be ignored.

    Same here. Works fine for the music I've already downloaded locally, but she refuses to play my cloud collection. I assume this will likely be fixed in an Xbox Music update.

    And WPC themselves that bi-weekly updates would begin for Xbox Music, starting on Monday the 21st. The update has yet to go live, two fays later. :/

    Tom Swift and his House of Tomorrow. LOL

    Just wait. Cortana on Windows Phone... Xbox One... PC's and Tablets... Cortana will be everywhere!!!!

    I want to be able to walk into my house and have the Xbox One see me and have Cortana say "Remember you wanted to call your brother when you got home, shall I initiate the call now?"

    I want to sit at my PC and have her say "Remember to send that proposal in today!" or "Business or Games today?" or whatever.

    Yeah, I'm one of "those people" that want to have technology in every part of my life. :D

    I have the same problem as you, though I am in the US. She never seems to activate location specific reminders.

    This has been an issue with 8X's. You'll have to wait. Mine is running it just fine, but it is still on an internal build. (Don't ask, can't give it out)

    I just downloaded cortana today and she only really sends voice text messages.

    I can't get her to do anything else. Any suggestions? Like I say remind me to walk dogs and she says I didn't get that.

    I don't think it is the mic's as they pick up text and call.

    Strangeideas!!

    Sounds exactly like TellMe on Windows Phone 8, are you sure you've properly installed 8.1 and/or have your region set correctly?
