    Using the SDK Cortana asks to enable location services to work. If the location disabled from the settings the search button will open the normal bing app that we all have today. If the location enabled from settings Cortana opens when hitting the search button but gives error when searching by voice but not when writing using keyboard.
    The region in the settings is US but I'm actually outside US.
    Anyone having Cortana work using the SDK? Specially you guys inside US.

    I'm in the US... I've only played with it for a few minutes, but if that few minutes is representative of what the SDK is capable of, Cortana in the SDK is nothing like the Cortana that we saw in the keynote.

    Ok, so did she ever answers when asking by voice? For me it will give error for anything needs to be processed in the cloud but it works when trying to open apps by voice...

    The error comes when hitting install for any app.

    That's what I found, however it's only the emulator so it will wipe all the changes when you close it.

    no, microphone does not work. Even if you type in the command, e.g. "set alarm at 7am", Cortana does not respond to most of them but just presents a bing search page.

    Exactly. This is why I said that this Cortana is nothing like what was demonstrated on stage. My take: This build of the SDK is an RC, not a final version. They didn't want Cortana details leaking before the presentation, and this may be the same SDK that "privileged" developers have had, so hopefully when they release the RTW of the SDK, Cortana will be complete. Of course, by then we won't need it, because we'll have it on our phones....

    I think the Cortana server is just blocked. The microphone works, because music search works... but none of the Cortana features, whether voice or text, work.

    When I tried it yesterday it DID work but with very limited features, nothing close to what Joe showed on Build. :)
