    Hey Cortana is not available for that model.

    Hey Cortana is a feature limited to devices with the higher-end Snapdragon 800 series chips in them such as the more expensive Lumia 1520, 930, HTC One M8 for Windows (although that one might not have it made)...

    The 640XL packs a much more pedestrian Snapdragon 400.

    What you just said is not even close to being true.

    Cortana will be available for EVERY Windows Phone running 8.1 GRD1 or higher. It is been released in alpha form in India as well.

    I'm not sure why you are having trouble but try this:

    If only you understood the answer. He said HEY Cortana is not available on 640 XL, which is every bit true.
    Cortana is available, as you said, on every device with 8.1 update. HEY Cortana is a different method of activating Cortana which is not available on devices running on a lower processor than 800.

    You are correct.

    To jefbeard911, please see this article that explains what Hey Cortana is.
