As yet we do not have any details on when Microsoft will add Cortana to Windows Phone 8.1 in the UK, as soon as we get some more information on an exact date, we will let you guys know.
We also heard a rumor recently that Microsoft intends to expand Cortana beyond Windows Phone, and the company may add Microsoft Cortana to their Windows 8 devices which will include PCs and tablets.
Microsoft is apparently also looking into adding Cortana to their Xbox One games console, although as yet there are no details on when Cortana will launch outside of Windows Phone, the recent rumors appeared after a job listing at Microsoft appeared online relating to Cortana.
