Microsoft Mobile (previously the hardware division at Nokia) has released new versions for a number of system apps available for Lumia Windows Phones. Extras + Info and Call + SMS Filter are joined by Display and Device Hub, each receiving a new version with unknown changes due to the lack of up-to-date changelogs.
The Extras + Info store listing (now on version 18.104.22.168) states that more minor improvements have been implemented, but this changelog has been present for some time. Still, we'll put this latest version down to yet more bug fixing taking place. Check out the screenshots below for a before and after look at affected features:
We can see the removal of Feedback to Nokia and the addition of SpamFilter. As for Call + SMS Filter, again we're not too sure what has been included in this update. The changelog is for an older release, but we'd imagine the same fits for what's added in the latest version, which is currently on 22.214.171.124. As well as these two system apps, both Device Hub and Display have also been bumped to a new version, again with unknown changes (versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 respectively).
Let us know in the comments should you notice anything we've missed! It's worth noting that we were required to reboot our Lumia 1520 testing these updates for access to Extras + Info to be granted (the menu entry in the settings list didn't respond to taps). This could be a glitch with our device, but be sure to give the Windows Phone a reboot if not all is well.
A big thanks to everyone who tipped us!
