    Cortana Wake Word Unavailable - Disabled after Windows Update


    Hello,


    After a required update to the "new version" of Windows 10, version 2004, as seen below was properly installed along with the associated Quality Updates, it seems as though another major issue with Cortana has occurred.


    Attempting to utilize the "Hey Cortana" as I did regularly to schedule appointments, etc., she now will not respond at all. Now, the only way for Cortana to hear me it to either click on the microphone in her window or press the "Windows Logo Key + C."


    As you can also see below, going into the settings of Cortana now states "Wake word invocation is currently unavailable and will be included in a future update."


    I would like to ask why the automatic voice command for Cortana was removed in the most recent update and when this will be fixed? Or, how can this be fixed now?


    Thanks
