Cortana is being considered with an update to version 2.2012.16655.0. Among other things, this means that users can use voice activation again.
Cortana voice activation can be activated again
A post on dirkhoffmanndotcom.wordpress.com describes the new possibilities in detail. There are also numerous screenshots that show you how you can reactivate the function.
In the first step, you have to make sure that Cortana is given the rights to do with voice activation. To do this, choose “Settings” -> “Data protection” -> “Voice activation”. It is then possible to assign the appropriate authorization here.
And then? Just try it out!
