My UK Windows Phone can finally get News on Cortana


They say the squeaky wheel gets the oil, and it seems in this case my complaining has paid off.

A few days ago I wrote that it was rather ridiculous that Cortana could not find me Bing news items from the search terms I selected in Cortana’s notebook unless I claimed to be in USA.

It seemed Microsoft was indeed able to flip a few switches to make it happen, and now, in UK at least, I am able to see news relevant to my interests.

Is this working for anyone else in any other region? Let us know below.

Thanks Thatwindowsguy for the tip.
