How to get Cortana if you live outside the US

How to get Cortana if you live outside the US


If you live outside the US and are now running the Windows Phone 8.1, you may well be weeping at the absence of one of its most important features: Cortana. But weep no longer, because you can get Cortana outside of the US, and it's incredibly easy to set up.



If you go into the settings of your device and change the region to US and

then change the interface language to English (United States), you can get access to Cortana right now.




















Note that you may have to reboot your phone a couple of times but that’s a small inconvenience for getting access to the digital assistant.

As of right now, Cortana is locked to the US but it will be expanding it to the UK and China later this year, with further regions gaining support in 2015.

Pocket File manager: fulfills the space of much need file manager.

Windows Phone is a closed OS; meaning that short of having a developers account there really is no way to side-load pirated apps and games (be honest! We’ve all done it!) so there’s one huge use for a file manager gone. In terms of stability the OS is rock solid, and the benefit of being a closed OS is the fact that there are none of those “icky viruses” you can get by playing around with your phone, further more this means that I don’t have to delve into the file drawer and search for the offending file that was eating up all my precious ram, or causing my photo gallery to crash.


POCKET FILE MANAGER, serves its best to fulfill the absence of File Manger.

pocket file manager provides you a similar file manager with great features and various other extra feature which are not their in the OS, like sharing video via Bluetooth, sharing files via WiFi etc. which are very useful.    

It also has ability to download stuff's via URL's and in addition it features a music player which can run under lock screen and various other features like ability to open and share PDF files.

Joe Belfiore talks about Windows Phone Preview

  Belfiore talks about Windows Phone Preview

All who saw the presentation of the new Windows Phone 8.1, by Joe Belfiore, loved! But the lack of information on Build 2014 a question echoes through "Air Internet":

 "When is the preview version?" We have previously published some dates as day. April 10 and day 14 April 

. Yesterday on his Twitter 

                                 Belfiore responded as follows:

"On many questions, some answers. Preview Release of ... 1st fortnight of April. . But we have no date yet " 

 See the image below:

This update to Windows Phone Preview will not have the new version of Cyan Nokia .

Imagine the confusion of ideas and the various comments and questions when out Windows Phone 8.1 Preview. 

Ideally, every day the user to verify the existence of update to the 15/04 day (where the first fortnight of April ends).

 Remember that for this update you must be a registered developer.

Windows Phone 8.1 will receive two ‘GDR’ updates this year

Rumor : Windows Phone 8.1 will receive two ‘GDR’ updates this year


Windows Phone 8.1 isn’t even on any devices yet, and we already know a lot about it from our Build 2014 coverage.
 What we didn’t know was what’s next for 8.1, and if the operating system would follow a similar schedule as 8.0 before IT

Editor Daniel Rubino stated that Windows Phone 8.1 will be updated twice in 2014 and once in early 2015 with new GDR (General Distribution Release) software updates. 

Recall that Windows Phone 8 had three small operating system updates between its release in late 2012 and late 2013 codenamed GDR1,GDR2, and GDR3, but they were known publicly as Update 1, Update 2, and Update 3.

 Rubino says the same rollout plan is game for 8.1, and later this year we’ll receive Update 1 and Update 2. Rubino predicts the former to arrive this Summer, while the latter should reach devices around “November/December”.

 Finally, Update 3 is likely going to be a Q1 2015 release before Windows and Windows Phone receive their next-generation ‘Threshold’ update.

There’s little doubt that one of those [updates] will probably include the so-far secret ‘3D gesture system’ that powers mystery device ‘Goldfinger’ as revealed by the Verge. That technology could prove to a real game changer by not requiring any buttons for user interaction. I’ve noted previously that Goldfinger is not expected to be ready until Q1 2015.

I’ve also heard rumblings of a dual-lens phone from Nokia later this year, where two cameras would be used perhaps for a multi-focus, Lytro type effect. Extensions of the OS for support of both of those features would be required for new hardware. More than likely we’ll also see the usual bug fixes and minor feature improvements as well in those GDR updates..
