AT&T rolls out Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 for its HTC One M8 for Windows

The expansion of Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 to more phones continues. We have received a number of tips that AT&T has started rolling out Microsoft's most current version of Windows 8.1 over the air to its version of the HTC One M8 for Windows.

This news comes just a few days after the same phone on Verizon Wireless started getting the Update 2 download. Here's a refresher of all the new features and improvements that are a part of Update 2.

HTC has already said it is committed to offering updates for the HTC One M8 for Windows for two years after it launched in August 2014, which likely means it will get an update to Windows 10 Mobile at some point.

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!

  • I'm STILL waiting for Update 2 for my UK Lumia 830!
  • The USA is waiting for any update for 830...
  • Seriously.... I went ahead and got the 830 figuring it would be THE phone that got THE updates!
  • You and me both!
  • No such phone. If you're relying on the carriers, all updates are a complete roll of the dice.
  • Immortal: Change phone updates not to install automatically. Both boxes unchecked. Get windows insider and the 830 will get the update. Once its installed remove windows insider.
  • I know its a good idea but I ain't risking it. I might end up getting Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phone again. So, no.
  • It won't. It gets downloaded in two discreet packages. Plus you get told what the update is and can choose to install or not, it's not automatic.
  • Does this work for the 1020 as well?
  • Yes, did it in my 1020. Just got to keep swiping away the notification for WX.
  • I did this on my Lumia 930 and not one problem. As stated, when the updates come check the details and don't accept the TP.
  • Doesn't get me denim. ;)
  • 730 update. Where art thou.
  • I am surprised we haven't heard more on verizons 735 tbh
  • The 735 from LTA doesn't have the update yet either.... Go figure.
  • I was going to get mad that we don't have it for any Lumia in att and a largely irrelevant phone like the m8 has it than I realized the update isn't that big and it is probably easier to upgrade phones since there are so few of them who own the m8 vs the many lumias
  • Not to mention, that it comes with the 640
  • Dont think the number sold really matters as it should still go through the same (prolonged) testing. There really isnt a good reason for the 830 or any other devices to still not have the Denim update. Just incompetence from all parties involved.
  • It's much easier to push out an update for a phone that has sold like 500 models vs a Lumia. Kind of like how they will release an update on one of the smaller countries before moving it over to us or UK.
  • UK has Update 2 on the 830 and 735
  • You're always mouthing off that the M8 won't get supported as good as Lumia's, yet here we are, the M8 just got updated, and many Lumia's aren't.  I love how you're trying to come up with dumb reasons as to why this is happening, but you're only putting your foot in your mouth deeper. 
  • Don't waste your breath dude that's just how he is. Its a sad existence but its all he has. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Well looks like you are wrong as the other lumias are starting to get the update.
  • Your emotions/opinions are clouding your ability to read.  He said, "as good as", not "better".  The fact that the Lumia 635 (congrats to L635 owners!) is getting updated proves that he is 100% right, and you are 100% wrong.
  • Do you know how stupid this sounds. Perhaps you should read your comments before you hit the post button. Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • ^ This!
  • Well said.
  • Whatever helps you sleep at night, dude
  • I sleep well :)
  • Yes, it's very easy to release an update.
  • That's actually the opposite of how the updates have worked. The phone that sells more gets the preferential treatment. It's why carrier variants get the updates first before unlocked country variants.
  • Wow Micah. Is that really how you think it works. Pretty sure the phone they'd rather push an update to a phone that sells more vs a phone that barely sells. And the M8 is a great addition to the Windows phone family. I honestly don't understand your blind hatred for that phone.
  • A great addition they literally has sold even worse than most other high ends. Was discontinued almost as soon as it was released on tmobile. Price dropped on Verizon after less than a year and that most people including tech experts mainly overlook.
  • Yea, I'm sure the Android M9 coming out soon after had nothing to do with any of it... At all.
  • The m9 windows ha snothign to do with it..considering the M9 is also on att with the M8 windows. Your point? Regardless the phone flopped harder than Kin by Microsoft on tmobile.
  • The flagship Lumia Icon got pulled from Verizon before it was even out for a year, so what are you going on about? It's almost as if you TRY to make yourself look stupid. 
  • And the tmobile m8 was pulled less than 6 months after it was release. Your point?
  • It was 4 months actually.  Their limited edition M8 sold out in 4 months.  Demand must have been strong to sell out so quickly.
  • T-Mobile sold it as a Limited Edition.  So, yes.  T-Mobile artifically limited how many units were sold from the beginning.  Prices drop on all phones over time.  You've got nothing.
  • You sound like you're talking about the Icon. At least the Icon went to more than one carrier.
  • Irrelevant? It's the only good Windows Phone on the market. I suppose by virtue of being a Windows Phone at all, it is irrelevant...But it's the most relevant Windows Phone there is.
  • The Lumia 930, 1520 and processor aside 640 XL and 830 all beg to differ. The m8 is at best on par....with its 4 ultrapixels and all.
  • Um, no. I'm in the US, the #1 market for Windows Phone, and there is no 930 nor 1520 available for sale at any carrier I know about.  The 640XL and 830 aren't even in the same league as the One M8. The only "relevant" Windows Phone at the moment, if you want to buy an actually halfway decent device, is the One M8.  It's the flagship.  So it get's the love.  Deal with it.
  • True story.
  • I don't want to sound rude, but where is the next mobile build!? I need it, mostly because i love the new Office Apps, and Music Preview app. I need the next build with more stability please MS.
  • Maybe this Friday of we're lucky. But we'll get it for sure by the end of this month.
  • "at some point" Just like Denim and Update 2 for the 830? ATTFAIL!!!!!!
  • Hopefully they aren't shafting Lumia owners for m8. Like Verizon did for the icon.
  • It would make sense though. Unfortunately, HTC is a better partner than Microsoft for some carriers.
  • And yet the phone is irrelevant regardless. Even more so than high end lumias. Go figure.
  • Do you proof your posts before you hit the 'Comment' button?  You just called high-end Lumias irrelevant. Maybe you're the one that's irrelevant.
  • What about the Lumia icon?
  • Not to be rude but after what Verizon did to Icon owners with the m8 release, lets hope they do another update for the icon.
  • You are rude.  And you're a troll.  I know I'm probably breaking some rule by saying that, but it's 100% true in your case.  I'm disapointed in this site that they let you run rampant.
  • Wrong carrier
  • Wait, when did AT&T release the Lumia Icon? /S :P.
  • Not all phones will get this update, if I recall, for the Lumia line only 730 and 830 right? The rest of the line will go straight to Windows 10.
  • What about the 1520. With the big screen I want this update for the HID support ASAP so I can get the MS mobile keyboard.
  • Wrong carrier, hardware manufacturer, and post..
  • I like you
  • Hopefully when Windows 10 for launches they or Microsoft will push out updates for this. Oh wait, it's locked still locked to US -.-. So most likely HTC won't push out many since there is no way this phone will achieve high volume sales.
  • But they committed to updates for 2 years lmao. I am really curious how they will handle huge upgrades like windows 10 or will they have another 8.1 update like they did to their power 8x/8s owners
  • I didn't say "any", I said "many" lolz. But I agree it would be interesting to see never the less.
  • It appears they are handling their updates just fine, unlike precious Lumia's. I don't know if I should cry for you or laugh at you Micah.
  • I am glad that they are updating all 100 of the m8 for your exclusive club. Good for you. HTC is throwing you all a bone :) lets nor forget how long it took for you guys to actually join the rest of us using windows 10....without trying to do work around with no ability to go back if need be up until a few weeks ago.
  • Is that all you got?  We were delayed in being able to install a preview of W10M?  I have news for you, W10M is not ready for primetime, yet.  It shows great promise, and I'm going to be thrilled to upgrade my M8, but not until it's ready.
  • Microsoft now has support in the recovery tool for the HTC. That indicates working together closely for updates. They may even build the software for it and so may be the source of updates...
  • Still waiting for my AT&T 830
  • Same. I wonder what the holdup is?
  • WEN IN INDIA?
  • the M8 for Windows was not sold in India.
  • I meant for all windows phone .
  • And in india the updates are not controlled by carriers
  • When you get a clue, aka, never.
  • And the AT&T Lumia 830 still doesn't have the Denim update
  • Nor did it sell
  • Sweet! Just like the Verizon one I had to unenroll from Preview for Developers to get it. Looking forward to the WinMo 10 stop-gap.
  • Your wait will be eternal as there isn't a 10th version of Windows Mobile.
  • Don't crash his dreams lol. M8 owners are hoping they will get windows 10 as soon as it is released
  • I will because I'll be buying a 10 device day one and will still own the M8. That counts, right?
  • I could have WinMo 10 right now through insider if I wanted which makes your complete point moot. Why are you here again?
  • To troll.
  • Windows 10 mobile, Windows Mobile 10, same thing
  • Well actually your wrong they dropped phone from the name its windows 10 mobile
  • Still waiting patiently for Denim for my Lumia 925 (: The preview version kills my battery.
  • Same here. It seems there will always be a crapshoot when it comes to official updates for Windows Phones.
  • It's not that bad. You can always use preview for developers or the insiders app to get the features you want (:
  • I am running the preview version. I eventually had to hard reset and not restore from backup to get rid of some issues, but I would prefer to get the official version with phone specific firmware.
  • AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 helloooooo!
  • ^ this exacly!!!!!
  • We are the new icon owners lmao. Remember how they got treated in place of the m8.
  • Look at the forums, you can get Update 2 pretty easily on the 1520....and any other Lumia with an SD card....
  • Link?

    Follow steps...I'm using my ATT 830 today, but I think I posted a few pics of my 1520 with Update 2 in the thread...for proof. Here is my ATT 830 though...don't mind the 5 column notification bar ....just a little tweak of the registry to get that. http://imgur.com/LffczTA
  • I got it on my Lumia AT&T 1520....
  • No, you got the camera update, not the update 2 update.
  • I would rather have an official announcement from Microsoft that it plans on releasing a successor flagship device to the Lumia 1520 - the Lumia 1540 with a 6-inch to 6.5-inch Quad HD screen, 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 810, 32GB storage, & 3500 mAh battery. The alleged Lumia 940 & 940XL are not enough. Microsoft needs to honor Lumia 1520 owners with a new flagship.
  • ^This!
  • If I don't have the 830 DENIM update in time for my July 4 vacation to New England, I'm selling it for $200 obo and going back to using my 920 until a proper flagship comes out! Tired of this BS!!!!
  • June ETA. Not long...
  • I got a L925 and I got the wp8.1 update 2!
  • On Att in the USA??
  • I'm actually from South Africa. Using Vodacom (in some parts known as Vodafone) as my carrier.
  • Could my 1520 get some love!?
  • Yes please! Mine too!!
  • So what should be my version #. M8 on AT&T and no update found
  • 8.10.14219.341 is what it says in about
  • I'm pretty sure that's Update 1. I have that build on my 520.
  • After the update I'm at 15143. Make sure you unenroll from dev preview if you're not seeing it.
  • I don't think that matters. You just ain't gonna get it for the 830
  • Lololol. The M8 BEFORE the 830....which doesn't even have the FULL Denim update yet?
    Someone screwed up somewhere with the release of the 830. Lets see, I don't know who to blame here?
    Microsoft, Nokia, or ATT?
  • I know right. As I said before its almost insulting a largely irrelevant phone like the m8 has it
  • Lol, had I known that ATT/MS cared more about the M8, I probably would've just paid the extra cash for the M8 while getting my 1020 replaced at the MS store.....or better yet, kept my 1020.
  • They all just don't care about the newer 830 I guess.
  • Att only sells m8 and the alpha everything else is eol, I did a warranty claim on my 32gb 1520 and they can only offer m8 or the alpha neither hold a candle to the 1520, I'm still heated about it but I needed a phone
  • Come on 920! You can do it!
  • No, it can't....
  • att for sure.. ive got denim on 830 Rogers version long time ago...
  • That is not the real Denim
  • Will the real denim please stand up?!
  • 1520
  • The 1520 will get it. It has the remote lock feature which by law all phones sold here in the USA has to have. When I don't know.
