    I also found this on the UK Windows Phone webpage, updated today: Meet Cortana for Windows Phone | Windows Phone How-to (United Kingdom)
    Same to Portuguese WP website: Conhea a Cortana para o Windows Phone | Procedimentos Windows Phone (Portugal)

    I don't think it means anything...

    True - while it still says in the "what's available" page that Cortana is still US only - the fact Cortana is now being mentioned on the UK (and other how-to pages) is a positive sign. Would be a bit strange giving instructions on how to do something that is inaccessible for most at present.

    She needs to learn about UK football (soccer) match results before she'll be much good in the UK. I was there and did a comparison with a friends Nexus... Cortana didn't know the scores he ask for. Probably cricket too for UK/India/AUS

    Now that should be entertaining!

    "Cortana, what's the latest on Man United?"

    "I did not find anything called Men United but did find men only bars. Here are the nearest ones from your location."

    Jesus, what would Cortana think of a strong Cork accent? Saying that I'm from Wexford and I know a few people down there that it might have a problem with as well.

    Cortana is simply switched off. Click on the search button and type Cortana Settings.

    Give her some time to adapt :) I'm in Cork 4 months already and I begin to understand what do people want from me.

    I was thinking, when Cortana is released in the UK, will it still be voiced by Jen Taylor or will it be a British person?

    I think it would still be Jen... wouldn't be Cortana otherwise, and they'd have to employ someone else to do the same stuff and it would take even longer to release - especially if they had to do that for each region.

    Your point being? Cortana isn't switched off, it's disabled everywhere except the US and typing Cortana Settings into search shows nothing but web results!!!!

    If you swipe across to 'Phone' you can access Cortana settings that way. Still can't switch it on until release mind, but it's there still.

    Given there have been updates to both the apps and the OS, people are probably just seeing something that was already happening in the background as a hidden process. It could also be as simple as a combination of that reality and having allowed Microsoft to collect data on usage - something is collecting the data and it could have whatever name they wish. I really wouldn't read it as an indicator that anything is forthcoming if it hasn't otherwise been announced.

    BTW, I must admit I find it really rather creepy reading people refer to a bit of programming as "she" or "her." It is just an application embedded in the OS of an inanimate object. This is not, however, an exclusive WP/Cortana commentary. The ongoing trend across the first world to personalize the inanimate and de-personalize actual people is a very troubling trend.

    There is an old thread, I think in the Cortana section, that have discussed this. It has been like that since DP 8.1 was released. Mine is Philippines and I have both Notifications and Info gathering, and this country has been forgotten by Microsoft.

    BTW I have a presumption that these "Cortana info gathering" and "Cortana notifications" are somehow related to the Feedback option being enabled. Does anybody have Cortana 'stuff' in Data Sense with disabled Feedback?
    My data plan is resetting tomorrow, so I will keep tracking it.

    Feedback bro, feedback ;) There is one in the settings.
    Feedback is always disabled on my phones, I still have it.
    Then it's becoming more mysterious...
