Microsoft Cortana is only available in the U.S. at the moment, it is expected to launch in China next week, and we are also expecting it to land in the UK soon.
Cortana in the U.S. comes with an American accent, and it is voice by Jen Taylor, the voice of Cortana from the Halo games on Microsoft’s Xbox consoles.
That will change when it launches in the UK, as Microsoft has confirmed that the UK version of Microsoft Cortana will feature a British accent.
@ThatMcrosoftGuy Question, Cortana will have her normal American accent in the UK, right? No British accent nonsense?
@sM4llziE She will have a British accent. Not Jen Taylor. 🙁
As yet we do not have any details on when the UK version of Cortana will launch, what we do know is that Microsoft will release the developer version in the UK over the next couple of weeks.
As well as bringing Microsoft Cortana to other countries, the voice activated assistant is also expected to land on other Microsoft platforms, which will include notebooks, desktops, tablets and the Xbox one console.
