    It works but you can change your Xbox region only once in 3 months so you cant revert back to your original region till 3 months if you want.

    Cortana was able to do that on my phone from the start, is it not automatic for everyone? I'm in Wales with my phone region set to US, but my Xbox etc is still set to UK.

    No,its not automatically. Region outside US and UK just able to use default cortana (music search are disable). After searching many article,i found that music search connect to region that allow billing for xbox.

    Try disabling Cortana, then phone will restart. Then enable it. You won't see the music icon in Cortana. Then play any English song on other device and ask Cortana, 'What song is playing?', she will tell you correctly. Now, wait for a minute, the icon will appear in Cortana. And surprisingly, she recognizes Bollywood Hindi songs too. :)
