    Apologies if this issue has already been addressed, but will WP 8.1 bring universal phone search? Will I, for example, be able to search for a specific song from my music library?

    If I remember correctly, they made a demo on day one build keynote about on-phone search with cortana.

    I recall that. Surely not limited to Cortana, though, right?

    It will be there with or without Cortana. So users outside of the US will still have this.

    Is that known fact, or guesswork? The reason I ask is that those that have been playing with the SDK have suggested that without Cortana, you are put to the current bing search page. Also people have noted things such as quiet hours are also not available without Cortana...

    I've also been playing with the SDK, and you are partly right. Pressing search does indeed take you to the Bing search (without Cortana), however, when your search something there is a new page on the pivot called 'phone'. This is where the files stored on your phone will show up.

    Fantastic! Great implementation by the WP team.
