Microsoft ends Nokia Device Hub and Storage Check betas; both are included in the Lumia Cyan update

Microsoft has today concluded the Nokia Device Hub and Storage Check beta programs, which allowed Lumia Windows Phones to connect to a variety of wireless accessories and anlayze on-board internal storage.

The apps are now part of the Lumia Cyan update and can be found on any up-to-date Lumia Windows Phone. If you're rocking Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan, you'll be able to easily manage all your wireless devices in one place using the commercial release of Device Hub and check what space you have remaining with Storage Sense.

What's different between the beta versions and final public releases is a few new features. For Device Hub, these include Bluetooth discovery, "find my device", support for more devices (including Bluetooth LE heart rate monitors, headsets, speakers, etc), as well as improving the overall user experience. As for Storage Sense, we're looking at moving apps and whatnot.

Consider the trial concluded and testers thoroughly thanked. If you'd like to enjoy the final release of Device Hub, wait patiently for Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan. Once both are installed, you're good to go.
