Many useful features of Cortana are limited by geography, so it is always news when she extends her capabilities to new markets.
The latest feature to become more available is Hey Cortana!, which lets users wake up their phone by voice and give verbal commands and searches without touching their phone.
Previously limited to only a few areas, the latest firmware updates to the Lumia 950 and 950 XL has seen the feature become available in more areas, including most recently Australia and now Canada.
Of course anxieties about battery life may limit the utility of this feature.
Has it been activated in your area also? Check by going to Settings in Cortana’s notebook and let us know below.
