    Idk about on Windows 10 but on Windows phone 8.1, thankfully, the feature is only a lumia exclusive.

    Technically, the One M8 should support Hey Cortana from a hardware perspective.

    In reality, HTC has not enabled the feature on the firmware side I believe.

    That is completely false.
    The m8 lacks sensorore, which is a requirement for hey Cortana on windows phone.

    SensorCore is for passive motion detection I think.

    A Snapdragon 800 series chip was the requirement for Hey Cortana I believe.

    The Hey Cortana software will show up on your Store app library as "does not work on this device". I believe it was always a Lumia feature, not a WP feature. Either way, I prefer talking on a phone as opposed to talking to a phone.

    It requires both. Hence why the ativ and m8 don't have it but Lumia's,thankfully, do.
