‘Hey Cortana’ now works on Lumia 950 smartphones in Canada

Lumia 950

“Hey Cortana,” the off-screen voice command that launches Microsoft’s personal assistant, is now available in Canada, according to several users on the Windows Phone subreddit.

“I had a firmware update today, and going through Cortana settings I’ve noticed that we can now select and use ‘Hey Cortana’ keeping our Canada region and settings,” writes Reddit user theafterdeath in a recent post. “To activate just go into Cortana’s Notebook and then Settings. The second option should be a slider to turn on Hey Cortana.”
