    I am sorry if any of you advised me to join the program over the last few months, I took the plunge last night and now have Cortana on my 1520 in the UK.

    One question is there a list of phones that you can do this for, for example the 520, is Cortana available for that phone yet?

    Cortana is region-specific, not phone-specific

    Cortana is compatible in all windows phones. It does not get limited to few phones, but as of now it is limited to few regions. In US it is in BETA stage, places like India it is in Alpha stage.

    I'm living in India..and Cortana on my Lumia 830 shows "beta"

    Do following steps..
    Language --> English (United state)
    English (India)

    One thing..keep in mind ...long press on English (US) if it shows "move up" than tap on it..or just relax if that is at top of the list..

    Region - 1) country / region --> US
    2) region format --> English (India)

    Speech - Speech language --> English (US)

    You're done..enjoy Cortana beta in india too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As per the latest info, Cortana is still in Alpha. What you're enjoying is not Cortana which is for India.

    Not at all Beta in USA. It came along with 8.1, whether by PforD or the phone running 8.1 natively.
