    I have had the developers preview for a while now. At first Cortana understood almost everything I said, and the only issues were really me learning how to ask it questions in the right way. Now Cortana barely understands anything. The annoying part is that these aren't new sentences, these are the same phrases and questions it had no trouble with beforehand. Everything indicated that this was supposed to get smarter as it went along, but the experience is getting worse and worse for me. I understand it's beta, but again these are things it had no problem understanding 2 months ago. I'd ask it to play an MP3... at the beginning it would understand and start playing it, I ask for that same song now, I end up with a web search for the song title. Cortana has gone for me from the best thing about 8.1 to it's most frustrating. Is this really just me?

    It has definitely been more hit or miss with me as well, but I also attribute that to me having Straight Talk. Straight Talk (AT&T LTE SIM) sucks, and when I'm using wifi it works fine. Check to make sure your coverage is good and nothing wrong with your service.

    I don't know. I haven't changed plans or carriers, I'm living in the same area, and haven't changed my wifi when I'm using it in the house. Nevertheless the experience is getting worse and worse :-/
