    Please help in understanding whether can download Cortana for Lumia 520 which got updated today. I'm from India so I suppose the alpha version is available. Please guide me :)

    It should already be in the apps section. Just pin Cortana to your start screen. Turn the app on and follow instructions. Or use the friendly WPC guide here:

    Activate Cortana alpha version in India, Canada, and Australia | Windows Phone Central

    ^^^ You have WP8.1 with GDR1 Developer Preview? Only with this Cortana is available in India in Alpha version.

    That's correct. You wont get Cortana-India if you are running official Cyan. You got to download Developers Preview - GDR 1 to get it.
    P.S: Cortana-India which is in Alpha state is not at all up to the mark! I would suggest you to use Cortana-USA which is in Beta state and works very well. Choice is yours :-)

    For Alpha Cortana with UK settings, you need to update to WP 8.1 Update 1. And then change your 'speech language' to English (UK)

    For Beta Cortana with US settings, you should be on WP 8.1 (you should have got it last night) > Change your country to 'United States' and your language to 'English (US)' and speech language to 'English (US)' and just restart. You will find Cortana in your apps.

    PS: There might be Facebook sync issues if you change your region.

    No need to change location to USA! Cortana might not work properly, just check out wpcentral how to activate Cortana in India! If you change your location, you might get some problems

    To get Cortana in India we need to be in WP 8.1 Update 1, which is available only for Devs, and which will void your warranty.

    The only problem I faced by changing the Location is, you have to purchase the apps in USD not in INR. And MixRadio Store is always showing me American albums, though 'Play Me' is working fine.

    most easy is to change your region language and speech to US and ofcourse when you change speech to US u need to download the US Speech which will b available as a phone update. restart the phone after each step like changing region then language then downloading speech. n u will enjoy cortana

    After you change your language to English (US) your phone will do a device update. If its not done check in Settings > Phone Updates.
