No, the latest WP8.1 update did not make Quiet Hours globally available

Windows Phone 8.1 has just yesterday received an update to version12393.

Unfortunately Microsoft has been mum about what’s new, merely saying it is offering “fixes and enhancements.”

One claim we have seen is that Quiet Hours are now available without Cortana, which is still tied to USA.

Unfortunately it is rather simple to check whether this is true or not, and unfortunately anyone using Windows Phone 8.1 without US regional settings will find this is not the case, seeing the message above.
