    Hi. I have Cortana enabled on Windows 10 (SP3), initially with my region/speech settings/etc. set to US but now with them defaulted to their native Australia values. In both instances Cortana seems to work well, I can create reminders, get chit chat responses, get missed call notifications, etc. BUT I can't use music commands like 'play some music' or 'pause', 'play', 'skip'. All of these result in a Bing search.

    There is no ror message, just a Bing search. I know some people get a 'something went wrong' error but I don't get that.

    Is anyone else having this issue? Any suggestions?

    EDIT: The play music commands do work when I speak them but not when I type them in. I think maybe I just misunderstood how it was supposed to work.

    Well it's good to know that this should work. Thanks

    I've tried many times over the last couple of weeks and is always a Bing search for me. If anyone can help me it will most appreciated.

    I was wrong! Or at least I misunderstood how it works. 'Play some music' does work IF I ask via a voice command but not via a text command. So if I speak it's all ok, I get music, but if I type then it just completes a Bing search. It's weird because all the other Cortana commands I know can be typed or spoken but I'm guessing this is different for the music commands and I can assume Cortana is working as expected for me.

    Does that seem correct?
