Earlier this year, Windows Phone 8.1 update has been rolled out and virtual assistant Cortana was made available with it. As Cortana was still a beta version, it was made available to US, and later to other countries like China and UK. As of today Cortana is coming to four more countries- Germany, Italy, Spain and France.
Today, an update is rolling out to Windows Phone Developer Preview Program which will make Cortana to be available in 4 languages ( France, Germany, Spain and Italy)
Initially in these countries, only Alpha version of Cortana is available which have less features ( missing most of the features ) comparing to the beta version available in USA, UK and China, but this will be resolved soon as the developers are working hard to make all the features available globally, some of the missing features ( comparing to beta version )
