    It's not a feature thats going to be enabled.

    Its reserved for devices with the Snapdragon 800 and better. The older S4 in the 1020 won't be quite as efficient and having it attempt passive listening will wreck battery. the 800 series has some extra bits in it to help it along.

    TL;DR NOpe.

    Thanx for the replies, but wasn't hey Cortana available to US Lumia 1020 8.1 Denim?... No, I am sorry. It is only 930, 1520 etc..
    The idea is to build "always listening ears" to my house that will react on my yelling.. With vs2015 I have my own App already done that will be triggered by Cortana giving it the parameters I need.. Like "Hey Cortana, my home turn on the light."

    Never was available for that model, or any other model with similar generation internals.

    Pretty much, it's because the Snapdragon 800+ series of processors has the microphones always listening in low power states, which the Lumia 930, 950 (XL), 1520 and HTC One M8 all has. Thankfully, the 930, 1520 and M8 can all be bought relatively cheap compared to the 950 (XL).

    Hope this helps.
