  1. Cortana Voice Activation

    My windows build is 19041.504 I just updated to windows 10 2004 and cortana voice activation is unavalabile, and it s says that it will be avalabile in the future updates. My language is on US and i saw on youtube that this problem was fixed in 19041.329 build, but for me it's not working in 19041.504.

    Someone who can help me? Cortana is up to date btw

    Cortana not hearing voice commands


    Thank you for posting your query on the Microsoft Communities.

    1. Are you able to hear other sounds from your computer?

    2. Does the microphone work with other apps such as Skype?

    3. Have you tried using "Learn my voice" settings?

    Kindly, follow these steps and check if that helps:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to try to turn Cortana off and then try turning it on back and check if she talks. Refer to the steps below to turn Off and On Cortana:

    • Open Cortana.
    • Click the hamburger button in the top left of the window.
    • Go to Settings and click on off.
    • Follow the same steps to turn it on.
    • Check if issue persists.
