Enable Cortana in Pakistan or in any country outside the US


In April, this year Windows Phone 8.1 announcement brought the news of Cortana, a personal assistant for Windows Phone (like the Siri in iPhone). At first it was only available to US and later expanded covering a few more countries over the globe but still Pakistan is not yet supported. Likewise many other are not yet supported for this feature.

Here we have a way to let Cortana run in Pakistan as well as in any region you belong to. Just follow below.

enable Cortana in your device running Windows Phone 8.1
  • Go to “Settings” app and tap “Language”.
  • Add the language “English (United States)” if it’s not present in the list. Make sure to “Move it to top of the list”.
  • Long press the entry “English (United States)” and tap “Region options”
  • In Region settings: Choose country as “United States” and go back to language screen
  • Long press the entry “English (United States)” and tap “Speech options”
  • In Speech screen: Choose speech language as “English (United States)”

That’s it. Only a restart is required now. Do it and have Cortana running on your Windows Phone.
