    Cortana heads to UK, China in beta, while India, Canada and Australia get opt-in alpha program

    Tonight in Beijing, China, corporate vice president at Microsoft Joe Belfiore announced new Cortana rollout plans for Windows Phone 8.1 users, including a new 'alpha' program to speed up the deployment process. Furthermore, full details about Update 1 for Windows Phone 8.1 were also released, including early access starting next week.
    As expected, China and the UK are now getting access to Cortana on a beta status, with substantial customization done for both countries, especially in China where some significant changes to the UI of Cortana have taken place. Additionally, India, Australia, and Canada are now part of an "early adopter program" where users can "opt-in andtry Cortana using English language models from the US and the UK."

    Considering MS want a universal experience across devices they are doing a bang up job of fragmenting the 'experience' across Windows Phone.
