Windows Phone users, we’ve got good news for you. Cortana will be rolling out to Windows Phone 8.1-powered devices in the UK soon. The bad news is Jen Taylor, the popular voice actress behind Cortana in Halo, will not be the voice actress of Cortana in the UK. The UK Cortana is said to have a British accent instead.
The news comes to us courtesy of WinBeta. We’re not exactly sure why Microsoft decided to give Cortana for the UK a British accent, since Brits can perfectly understand the Jen Taylor version of Cortana. So if you’re a Halo fan waiting to hear Taylor’s voice on your Windows Phone handset, unfortunately, you’ll hear someone else’s voice.
