    "Hey Cortana" I don't know anything about. I do however have Cortana. Could you enlighten me on the difference?

    "Hey Cortana" is a hands-free Cortana activation feature that uses the new 'Hey Cortana' voice command.

    Okay, this is weird, I chatted with a Verizon representative about the update, and she would not answer to it. All she would say is that she does not have access to the info, and to call support.
    An honest answer. Good for her.

    It's still being tested. Shouldn't be too much longer.

    While this is a reasonable statement, and you ought to be commended for making a reasonable statement, I've gotta point out the timeline here. We've been saying this very sentiment since April 2014 when AT&T's phones got WP8.1/Cyan. We're kinda beyond reasonableness at this point.

    I work for Microsoft and I know people internally who are testing it. I can't say much since what i say could (and shouldn't) be construed as "official", but trust me it really is close.

    Go get the Preview For Developers app if you want Cortana. You can get the BETA 8.1 update that way.
    Hey Cortana is ONLY available with Denim and even then, not all devices are going to get it. Also WP8.1 DP is NOT beta software.

    Umm... AT&T pushed out WP8.1/Cyan in August 2014. WP8.1 DP has been available since April 2014.

    Whoops. My bad. AT&T just announced that they were going to be the first to get it in April. AT&T Among First to Bring Windows Phone 8.1 to Consumers | AT&T

    Ah, okay. Sorry, should have clicked on your bio. Thanks for the help. Can you give us a time range on "close"?

    If we take you at your word that you do have a source internally, why should we should be believe it's close if Microsoft is still testing it? Microsoft is not the arbiter of when this will be released to the Icon, VZW is.

    We've been strung along since 8.1 was announced. All we've gotten is BS promises. Nothing personal, of course, but this phone has been cursed since its earliest days and until I see an update, I'm calling BS on this, too.

    It says BETA in the top right corner of the Cortana screen

    The O/S is not beta. Cortana is still considered beta and is not available in all regions.

    To use the "Hey, Cortana" feature however, the denim firmware is required.

    Cortana has evolving features and layouts that may change when it goes final (you see some of those changes in the WP10 pictures of Cortana released) and that is why you see the "beta", that is not referring to the DP

    That is for Cortana NOT WP8.1. It ALSO says "beta" on the HTC M8 too. That phone SHIPPED with WP8.1. Cortana is NOT the OS it is a function built into the OS.

    I know it is unlikely for this to happen, but it may ease the frustration that has lasted for untold weeks and months if I could be helped to understand what was the big holdup. There are many that have been using the PFD for months (not me) and have not had major issues as a whole. Can we expect performance improvements because of this long cycle or will it simply be what is expected?

    Being reasonable, this has just been an extremely long process for us as consumers.
