    Hello,

    I just did a hard reset of my Nokia 930. Everything is installed - latest update as well.

    12 restarts later - Canadian Language is installed (um... English)

    Hey Cortana! - not working
    I check the settings and it says for Voice Activation:

    "To use Hey Cortana, make sure your region and speech language match your current display language"

    So...

    Region->Canada
    Regional format->match phone language

    Speech Language->English (Canada) - default
    Phone language: active
    Regional format: active
    Speech: active
    Keyboard: English - Canada

    Keyboard-> English - Canada


    Still no Hey Cortana....help?


    Suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Mr. V

    Maybe try switching languages to US English and then back to Canadian?

    It seems that Hey Cortana only works in USA. Used to work here in Australia but about 6 or 7 builds ago I had to do a reset and couldn't download Australian (or Canadian which I tried) speech packs. Then when they were able to be downloaded Hey Cortana wouldn't work. I've had some sort of feedback from the Insider ring which says MS are aware of the issue but it's never mentioned as a known problem with any of the build release notes. Seems like MS don't give a sh*t about customers outside USA
