    Just a FYI if you have a "Me" contact(for separate emails for yourself or for w/e reason) she won't tell you jokes, stories, or anything that starts with "Tell me..." cause she'll go looking for that contacts number.

    I've typed many of the fun phrases and it just brings up a Bing search. I have performed a hard reset. Any ideas?
    Are your region settings correct? And is personalization enabled?

    It only works if you speak the command. It's the same with Google Now.

    I'm a little let down, she has very good voice recognition but that's about it, not much interaction, she cant tell me where I work, if you have more than one weather location saved she can't tell you the weather. When I get a text she asks to read it but when I say yes she asks who do I want to text. Like others 90% of the replies are Bing search results. She wont respond or call me by name I have set for her, I've checked all my settings. Also its very limited on what I can add to favorite places, like my favorite Italian restaurant all I get is a Bing search and no way to add it as a favorite.

    I'm getting the same issue with just getting Bing searches. Is a hard reset truly required? Is there any other way to enable Cortana's witty response?

    I had an easy hard reset with the 920. Everything but app settings were saved. So that's not to terribly bad.

    The witty response are not a problem for me. She just not as interactive as it looked on the unpacking, like I said she wont call me by name, she doesn't speak when I open her by the app or search button. I've put in my work location as a favorite as well as home and she cant tell me where either are or where I'm at if I'm at that location, I just get a generic "your somewhere around......." The rest of the time its just a Bing result. I asks her what's the weather and because Bing remember my home location and I'm not home she will ask what app to use weather or weather. I know she's bata but wow didn't know it was this bata, Jarvis works better at this point.

    Let's just make sure we keep in mind that from the demo, MS has already said it's in Beta. We're already seeing a preview of what she can do, and what she can do now is already amazing enough as it is! Which means, it can only get better! :)

    Let's just keep doing those searches, because as far as i can tell, the stuff we throw at her will make her learn and will in turn make her better!

    Did you set work and home as "places" in Cortana's settings? She knows where I work.

    Yes I did. I can ask her my location (home or work) I get a general area where I am. I can ask where do I work, I get a Bing search no voice. I ask her my name and I get a Bing search of names

    Just performed a hard reset and wiped all the data from my Lumia 920. Cortana's witty answers are working now.

    I really like Cortana's answer. Really looking forward to make a conversation w/ her when the final build is out.

    Yeah, I'm using an 822 and Cortana defaults to a Bing search whenever I ask one of the canned questions.

    I'm not going to do a hard reset unless absolutely necessary. Has anybody found a way to get this working? I suspect there won't be any update until the full release if it's a software issue.

    For those having issues, Ensure these settings match:
    • Language: English (US) - Moved to top/Set as default (Requires Reboot)
    • Region: United States - Regional Format matches Phone Language (Requires Reboot)
    • Speech Language: English (US) (May require update to language pack, reboot)
    • Cortana: On

    And please, lets stay on topic. If you have further issues, start a new thread if no one hasnt already.

    "Are you pretty?"
    "Are you smart?"
    "Where is your home?"
    "How old is _____ (celebrity name)?" (not witty but neat)
    "I'm confused."
    "You're funny"

    Same, it's really impressive that this is only the beta. Cortana is really going to kick someone's **** when its final build is released! (and no it's not Google Now= =)

    LOL I like that one even more than the SIRI response. Google Now really need to step it up.. the only thing cool about it is the "ok, google" thing, and I've seen friends trigger that by accident -.-

    Briefly Off Topic: Now is info only, and it's commands are split between Google Now & Android Voice Command. Its weird that way. Whereas Siri is more conversational. Cortana is like the best of both worlds.

    On topic: It didnt save the screenshot, but Cortana said "The internet and I aren't speaking right now" when i had connection problems.
