Nokia pushes out updates for Extras + Info and Nokia Care

Extras Info

Nokia has pushed out more updates for consumers today. The company has released new versions for both Extras + Info and Nokia Care system apps on Lumia Windows Phones. The apps have been bumped to version and respectively.

What's new in these updates? We're not entirely sure (and yes, we understand how some of you sigh when reading that phrase in these articles) as the change logs appear to be either out of date or accurate. Either way, we'll assume there are minor fixes and improvements included.

Check for updates for Extras + Info  and Nokia Care on the Windows Phone Store. If you don't have SysApp Pusher installed, we strongly urge you to download the app. Have you noticed anything new since updating either system app? Let us know in the comments.

We'll update this article should we learn anything new.

Nokia pushes out updates for Extras + Info and Nokia Care


I almost had him going, then YOU had to come along and ruin it.. :-)
You know what they say.. Never trust a man with funny exclamation marks.. Lol❕❕❕
Edit:... Wait, that was you.... Oh geez.. :-o:-o:-o:-o:-o

That's actually a total of 7"..... That's overkill for you.. You could use a 520, and still have phone to spare... Lol❕❕❕

Let's place a bet.. I bet a major device leak will happen today!.. Loser has to stroke DCJBS, and NIST, at the same time.. Deal❔

Hmm, Nokia Care will not update on my Lumia 1020. Says its not for this device?

EDIT: Nevermind, I had to look it up in the store and it gives me the update option. For some reason the WPC link wouldn't let me download.

Lol . But you actually can uninstall it. Just change your date 100 years to future . Then , when you tap on the setting , it will show uninstall .

Try setting your date to a future date then open access point, should prompt you to uninstall. (tip from the 920 forum).

Set today's year to something ridiculous like 2169, and then try to open it, it'll pop up with something, I dint remember what, but it removes it completely! I had to do it on my 920 a couple months ago.

You're all welcome! ;)

I think that it isn't available in the us store try changing it to some middle eastern country as that how I always updated it (change the country in the settings)

Same here. Was hoping when ATT released the recent FW update it would fix these issues. Instead it seems to make things worse for my 1520.

I don't know if it's really the reason or what, but I changed the region to India, reset, and I was able to download Nokia Care.

I have the calendar set as the app that gives me more info. The last update to Extras+Info gave the subject name in Glance, today's update added the time. Awesome! :D
I haven't found anything else new, but I like the glanceness. :)

Just updated Extras+Info.  Love the addition of the date to the calendar events in the glance screen!

As others said, Nokia care is not available for my 925 on T-Mobile. Possible reasons listed are phone OS not up to date or blocked by carrier. FWIW, Reviews show complaints about this since black.

Just change the "Region" settings; my 920 is the International version and bought in Europe but because my region was US the app showed "Not available". Changing the region to somewhere else, I used Italy, allows you to download it.

Note that I already had the app, I just needed to update it still I had to change the region.

Country/Region of my phone was set to US and Nokia Care did not give an update. Changed the setting to Turkey (where I live now) and it did give the update.

Those who are having problem, this may work for you as well.

From the app description:

Nokia Care helps you make the most of your Nokia Lumia. Discover how to use Nokia Lumia’s many exciting features with tips & tricks, frequently asked questions and videos. There’s also a handy offline user guide, and if you need further assistance there’s information on how to contact Nokia directly.

You asked why not in the US. maybe US carriers don't want us to get confused about features they have eliminated. Or maybe they are afraid easily accessable information might cut calls to their CS and endanger those jobs. Yeah that's it. ;)

Did anyone notice, seems like the screen is brighter now and the colors lighter after the update. My phone is on Auto brightness btw. - Lumia 1520

Rich can you pass along how much I hate these updates that say not to install them without first updating the phone. Update it to what? The vaguely worded warning pisses me off. For god sakes can't they qualify their statement?

One more thing, I just noticed that it fixed the delayed charging notification. When I plug-in my phone now it almost instantly notify me. - Lumia 1520

Nokia care updates and works just fine in South Africa. BTW, for all who wonder what app does;besides tips,videos and tricks it can also point you to location of closest Nokia centre and display call centre number, working hours, etc. Quite handy...

Added Sysapp to my ICON, it siad there was a update for Nokia Account, but the version was dated June of last year. Strange Nokia would not install the latest version on the new ICON.

Extras is updated probably becouse of 8.1 update as it was updated for amber and rest of the updates, at least i think so..

With the update, I can now set in Glance also to show 'my text or 'notification lockscreen''. Or was this possible already?

Does the 'check your warranty' work? Or is that just for America? Anyone got this to work..? I'd like to know.. Thanks guys & gals if you get back to me..

If you're in the US change location to UK not only can you get Nokia Care you can download Nokia Reading, it's only half functional in the US because in the UK there is a store included where you can buy and download eBooks.
