Cortana will be tracking Santa's location as soon as he leaves the North Pole

Tracking Santa across the world on Christmas day has become a tradition for Microsoft. Teaming up with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) tracking Santa on any device has never been easier. The usual app has bee released by Microsoft for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, and the website has been launched at The apps offer festive videos and games along with the location of Santa on Christmas.

This year Microsoft is adding one more feature to their Santa tracking capabilities, and that is Cortana. Windows Phone users can ask Cortana, “where is Santa?” beginning at 11:00 pm PST on December 23rd and get a response of what city around the world Santa is visiting. This Christmas can be a great time to learn about cities all over the world by asking Cortana for Santa’s whereabouts. If you cannot wait until Christmas Eve, just go to and play games, watch videos, listen to music, and get some authentic NORAD Santa tracking gifts.
