Changing the language of Cortana allows you to communicate with the assistant in your native tongue. Doing this prevents app and app store compatibility issues, which is obviously something that’s best avoided if possible.
Here’s how you get to it.
Open the search box on your Windows machine, either by clicking on the box or pressing Windows key + S. Click the gear icon to open Settings and then scroll down the Language option. Click the drop down menu and choose the language you want Cortana to speak in.
Because this is part of a preview build, the full list of language options aren’t available, but when this goes final — presumably with the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 — you’ll be able to select from English (US, UK, Canada, India, Australia), German, French, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Chinese (Simplified).
You will need to have the most recent fast ring build installed on your PC in order to take advantage of this feature, but once the update goes wide to everyone, you’ll know how to do it!
