    wondering if this will always be the case going forward that a Cortana Update will take weeks to hit all phones.

    Most likely. At least for awhile...Basically since they don't want to have any servers crashing while pushing updates to everyone at the same time. (I'm assuming that's why they are throttling the switch). It makes sense, but I could only imagine what they'll do when the official 8.1 update starts rolling out and a whole lot more people start using Cortana. Hopefully it won't be that some users aren't waiting for a month for updates...

    But hey at least we get to be the guinea pigs first. I would rather have something than nothing at all.

    With Microsoft commiting to 2 Cortana Updates per month, this could mean that by the time the first update hits some phones the 2nd is already rolling out.

    Yes indeed.. I hope it doesn't turn out that way.

    The biggest problem I see with this kind of roll out is if I eventually have Cortana on my Windows Phone, xbox and Windows 8.1 desktop/tablet, I could end up having 3 different experiences and this would not be a cohesive experience.

    Dude. Preaching to the quire about the Xbox Music app. However, I have the retail bits and the internal test build. Some cool things coming soon! :D (Also to Xbox Video and Skype). [Yeah, I know, I am a tease]

    As for the more functional than Goober Now and Silly? It's coming. We have SO MUCH in the pipeline and it's all being worked on. The development teams have grown a LOT since Cortana took off like a rocket. She is getting TONS of love from the mother ship. :D
    XBox Music - completely non functional for me. I just don't get the reason why they didn't just pull the app from the app store completely until it was ready.

    Cortana - ooh, looking forward than. Also I'd recommend a little less hubris when it comes to Google & Apple. They are higher on the "most valuable brands" list this year. Take a cue from Satya & Phil Spencer.

    Expansion on your idea: have the Cortana theme follow the dark/light theme setting perhaps? Since we don't get a choice on dark/light when viewing an email. Well, my 620 doesn't at least.
    She already follows the dark and white theme of the Start screen. Try it out.

    Open Cortana, and search for "News about cars"

    When Cortana runs the Bing search, scroll down until you see "Update me on this news topic". Tap that, and it's added to your interests :)

    Make sure Preview for Developers is installed and active (ie you are enrolled) then check for updates.

    Has anybody else noticed that the download settings in the Store have changed a bit with the new update? For instance, if a publisher doesn't allow an app to be installed on the SD Card, previously we had to manually go and change it in the Storage Sense settings. But now it asks permission only for one particular app to be installed in Phone memory, while the default settings ie., SD card destination remains unchanged in Storage Sense.

    It's new. Crotona's getting an update. But the roll out is very slow. Some of us, me included, have yet recieve the update.

    [INFO]Cortana for EN-GB (Great Brittan) and ZH-CN (Chinese (PRC)) will be released in the coming weeks (shooting for mid-July at the latest). Keep on the lookout![/INFO]

    As for the Cortana release not reaching everyone. This will NOT be the norm for releases. This one is taking a while to roll out due to the sizable infrastructure changes that were made and some issues that were encountered in some area's for various reasons. We have had to pause the rollout a few times to make sure it's all good. Future regular rollouts (the twice a month schedule) will not be an involved.

    Please have some patience while things are being worked out to ensure that everyone is getting a great experience.

    p.s. Infrastructure changes/updates are for coming features which I will post on as soon as I am able. :D I promise!!!
