    I discovered something new today. I turned off my location services and tried starting Cortana but it didn't open and a Bing screen appeared. However, I thought of holding the search button for some more time and after a vibration, the old listening controller ( which was in WP 8 ) appeared. It's interface was the same as of Cortana but no interests, news, etc. You can try it too and have fun.... ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yea its very useful as I reverted back region settings to India for purchasing apps via my gift card..hence very useful in the absence of Cortana....

    Yes its the Bing engine that Cortana runs atop of. If you disable Cortana in settings you'll also hit the same thing. Some still prefer it.
