    Windows 10: Cortana begins to show up in consumer preview


    Posted: 01 Dec 2014

    Microsoft is working diligently towards a release of Windows 10 that is targeted towards consumers which should arrive in late January. One of the features that will be coming -- and Neowin was the first to bring you details on it -- with Windows 10 is Cortana. While there have been tons of assets for the feature found in the builds, including all of the sound files, you have not been enable turn it on.

    And while Microsoft builds out the infrastructure to support Cortana on the millions of Windows PCs that are expected to be sold with Windows 10, they have begun letting select groups use the feature. We have detailed a lot about the future of Cortana and Windows, which you can read about here, and now we have the first screenshot showing the icon in the taskbar.

    I have an Android phone, so I have never used Cortana. Does anyone know if you can change the voice on Cortana?

    Good news, consumer preview is something to look forward to in January
    @Arelem If it works like it does on windows phone I don't believe you can change the voice (US gets the official voice from Halo)

    I'm presuming this will be made available via the usual methods, but I hope they make this an ISO version, as I'd like to do an upgrade install (from a clone of 8.1) with the CP -- which I read you could not do with the recent build.

    Thanks for that video, Dave.

    The Brits have the same Halo voice, which I think will be global. They may have different voice features down the road. They're just sound files.

    That's the way she works on Windows Phone. Got it about 5 months ago. Great feature indeed! :)
