Did you ever wonder in which regions and languages Cortana is available? If you live in the United States or Canada, you probably didn’t ask yourself the question, as Microsoft usually releases new features in these regions and then expands.

However, if you live outside of the U.S. and Canada, you probably asked this question many times, as you probably continue to wait for Cortana to arrive to your Windows 10 device, Xbox One, and even on Android and iOS (using the Cortana app).

The digital assistant is not available on every country for a good reason. It’s because Microsoft carefully builds and optimizes the feature for each specific region and language to deliver a more personalized experience.

The following are the lists of regions where Cortana is available and the supported languages for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Xbox One, Android and iOS devices.

While Cortana is only available in a limited number of countries, remember that you can always give the digital assistant a try outside the supported regions on your PC or on Xbox One.

Microsoft is always updating Cortana, as such it’s just a matter of time until the company announces the assistant in more countries.
