Whenever I try to use any voice command, the phone resolves the spoken word correctly, but instead of executing it, it always searches for it. E.g. I say "Call <name>", it will go "Searching for 'Call <name>'" and so on with all the commands.

What did I miss? What can I do?

    are you using cortana? – Thomas Sep 27 '14 at 22:00
  • @Thomas: Good point. It seems my phone doesn't have Cortana installed. I go into settings/applications and there is no Cortana menu item where I could torni it on. WP 8.1 on Lumia 925, UK. Any ideas how to install it? – Adam Szabo Sep 28 '14 at 12:57
  • Cortana can't be "installed", it just shows up depending on your region and language settings. Setting it to USA will work definately, I think UK will get it quite soon (thought they'd had it already..). Have you checked if your speech language is set properly? – Thomas Sep 28 '14 at 13:09
