Today  has posted a brief post regarding Cortana been made available to more countries,yet again Ireland is off the list and since November 14 and earlier people have been asking when will it officially land for Irish Windows Phone users,today does not bring any hope at all for that so sadly you will have to stick to the current way of using Cortana if you do.There has been no concrete answer as to WHEN…Apart from the “coming soon” or “near future” response…

At this stage now I think most have given up and the forums and boards here have said same and will just take it on the chin,this would not be a main selling point of Windows Phone anyway but some do like the idea which I think is a novelty and would wear thin after a while anyway…


Today, we will begin rolling out Cortana to Insiders on Windows 10 Insider Preview builds 10532+ as an optional download to Insiders in Japan and in English for Insiders in Australia and Canada. We also have an early version in English for Insiders in India, which will be updated with an improved voice later this month. With these rollouts, we hope to learn a lot from your feedback as we continue to improve the experience and refine it for each market.

Later this year Cortana will also be available first to Windows Insiders in Brazil and Mexico, and in French in Canada.With windows phone market share here in Ireland in decline we already have Cortana in A Public Beta on Android and plenty of Microsoft services on Android and people have moved on..It may note bode well with some but this is how it is today..have your say below if you like..
