New Windows Phone Preview for Developers 14219 update is live

Version 14219 of Windows Phone 8.1.1 update for Preview users is now available

Starting just a few minutes ago at 1 p.m. ET, Microsoft has begun to roll out another OS update for those utilizing the Preview for Developers program.

Heading into Settings and Phone Update, users can tap the Check for Updates button to begin downloading the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1.1. Part of this update should enable Cortana for those in Europe, which was announced this morning. As usual, we also expect some bug fixes and optimizations as well.

The version number of the update is 14219 up from the current 14203 build released a few weeks ago. We will update this article as more information comes in. Stay tuned.

Thanks, Brett C. Bearach, and others for the tips!

  • Update- a sweet word
  • Yeeep..
  • Does matter download this one right now? I ain't getting anything with this...
  • If you do not use cortana it does not need to install now but however it will be automatically updated tomorrow. Somehow I see Cortana little bit fun, so I will play with her awhile :D
  • But if you are developer you would like your phone up to date, did you? and this update not only about cortana only, at i know.
  • +1520
  • Totally
  • Sure it is... Like updating the XBox Music - Not!  Give me back the OS build version.  Like updating the People Hub - Not!  Give me back my original people hub.  Like updating the photos hub - Not!  I could go on and on but if you think Update is a "sweet word" keep telling yourself that if that make you happy.  :/
  • Crybaby. Boo hoo hoo
  • Sorry if the truth hurts!  If that makes me a cry baby.  Then color me a cry baby.  I'm more than happy to wear that moniker.  What?  You think that hurts my feelings?  Dude are you in the second grade?  Please.  Yes!  I'm proud to be a cry baby telling the truth!  :) Or is that you can't handle the truth?
  • If you want old sick with 7.8
  • Truth from your perspective. I'm happy with all the changes. Speak for yourself man-child.
  • Your truth is your truth, sure. Most of us would call it an opinion.  Everything in your rant is something people could identify with and probably agree.  It was the last sentence that was silly.  Update is still a sweet word because it means iteration and it means cycles are being spent on the product.  It doesn't mean that the results of updates are always welcome or well received.  The updates that you specifically reference actually made sense (and in some cases were necessary) from a technical perspective. People hub = future proof and faster cycle than waiting for FB to break APIs and require an OS update to fix.  XBOX Music = personally, broken the minute they killed off Zune without an adequate replacement.  Oh, and Photo Hub = I get it, telemetry says people do things a particular way, but they didn't have to make it the default for everyone. At least make the new view optional.  If I did things like everyone, I would be on an iPhone.  They seem to have a problem with execution and communication.
  • @RayWP7 I'm not going to argue with you with the "Your truth is your truth..."  You are correct.  It is my opinion.  WP7?  My wife still uses HTC Radar 4G and boy do I miss the beauty of the original Windows Phone when ever I use her phone.  Yes, I do realize some people think these updates have been good for WP, but I'm not falling for it.  Microsoft has watered down the product for the most part. IMO.  Being able to save apps to your SD Card was a GREAT update.  It's one thing to make updates, but don't kill off all the good things while doing it.  Yes.  I fell into the trap of answering as if my opinion is the truth (for everyone).  But I'm glad to see you mostly agree with my sentiments.
  • very gracious whodaboss
  • Yeah whoda I get you gripe and in some ways I feel the same but also now I get the same thing in the universal apps and this will become a more common occurrance. I know in the near future moving from device to device and not getting a consistent experience or "one" that is seriously outdated would be a major issue for many. I do think "you" would be really annoyed by that.... So its not always the one thing but the broader view that makes this a non-issue for me.
  • Very articulate ray
  • Lol not crybaby, but it makes you a troll.  Your complaints are very minor for the most part, however I could agree with the xbox music. That is stand alone and not solely dictated by an OS build update.
  • Amen to that How I miss the glory of the old photo hub
  • Mommy's gonna change your diaper soon. So you can just stop crying
  • Anyone got a bottle for me?  I also want XBOX Musix, People hub and Photos hub back to how they were or updated based on those versions.  Whodaboss is right on the money.
  • I agree as well. The old people and photo hub were amazing for the integration they had with social networks (Microsoft just had to improve on that, adding foursquare, for instance, and others), which was a huge promise of Microsoft when they announced WP7. It's just odd that Microsoft is the only company that kills off features with updates.
  • you guys are missing the complications to this, ideally, microsoft wanted everything integrated, but it prove to be an unfeasible goal as they can barely get new OS updates going out within 6 months because of carrier shenanigans.   You guys are so damn annoying!  "Microsoft, why dont you update more? we never get updates!"  "Microsoft, why did you make everything able to be updated faster, I want it back how it was!"    With all you whiners its just a lose/lose for microsoft =/
  • the only problem is people want their social networks in APP form ... that is why they got yanked out of the o/s ... they still have their hooks in the o/s as you can share whatever with your social apps.   microsoft saw which way the world was going and changed courses.   change happens ... learn and adapt.
  • Where are the old people?
  • Huh, what truth? It's a subjective matter, you can't speak for everyone.
  • Some of us like Xbox Music.
  • *fainted*
  • No, you people who call us "crybaby" are idiots.  Windows Phone was unique -- and BETTER -- for a number of reasons, not the least of which was the hub concept and where it COULD have gone.  But Android and iOS lovers ruined many amazing aspects of Windows Phone because you insisted it be more like Android and iOS.  You are all idiots, plain and simple.
  • !
  • Only an idiot calls other people idiots!
  • Cool story
  • So you are? :p
  • I agree   With each update Windows Phone is becoming less and less unique, and the people asking for it to become more like Android and iOS will eventually leave for those platforms.  
  • "No, you people who call us "crybaby" are idiots."  People who call other people names are arseholes.
  • yeah that is right, but i think the windows phone  team just  took too literally the look like more as Android, people demmanded  things that on android existed  even in the version 2.1 like   notification center,    quick shortcuts on there, but not kill the people hub , the xbox music i think it was  a bad move,  should still with  zune till have an competent  replacement or simply   still with zune and if you are user of  xbox music get the player as an independent application, because in the real word the xbox music do not come with anything new  or even support for more codecs  than just only more bugs correction
  • Wait, so updating an app that you want improved is bad?
  • Dude... Relax
  • If only Verizon knew how to use that word....
  • Are you suggesting that it doesn't mean "Buy a new phone".
  • No, it means, "Buy a new Android or iPhone"
  • Yep, that's what it meant for me. Sold the Icon, ditched Verizon and picked up a Nexus 5 on t-mobile. Been super happy with t-mobile coverage, LTE has even been faster than Verizon. The way they treated Icon users and 928 (which I still own) was a joke, they really don't give a crap about thier customers.
  • Daniel is in full flow today, he is writing all the articles by himself after a lull all day yesterday.
  • He was traveling yesterday.
  • Cool but cortana still doesn't work!!!
  • is this build 14219 will be included in GDR1 i.e I will get with denim whenever it will release?
  • 3.41
  • version# 8.10.14219.341
  • Hopefully it ends my "Resuming" nightmare on the 1520
  • It only brings cortana to different countries nothing new
  • The article also says "as usual, we also expect some bug fixes and optimizations as well" which one of them could be a bug fix or optimization for the resuming screen which bothers alot of users on different lumias... :P
  • I don't think this update fixes anything.. It's major purpose was Cortana.. .. Well there's only one way to find out :p
  • Nothing new for you, but for us in Germany it's a whole new level! I waited about half a year to finally see Cortana in German... Greetz, Franz
  • Cellular data is now an option in the action centre
  • Same here!!
  • And on the 1020. My Start button has become useless.
  • Same here. It might be more fitting if MS chages the name from Lumia to "Resuming..." since it seems like that's all I do on WP anymore. Seriously, what happened to Windows Phone? It used to be so quick and silky smooth.
  • its preview software... it isnt final software. if you dont want to have things change, dont enroll in a preview program let alone install preview software on your device
  • This happened when I had the final build without the preview installed. Try again smart guy. I think it has more to do with the fact that microsoft is taking functions that were a part of the naitive OS and making them individual apps. They get updated more often this way, but they truly suck and cause the entire OS to drag.
  • smart guy says 2 things... 1. dont update your phone if you are happy with it 2. cry to microsoft directly if you think that will help  
  • Yeah you prolly have the live lock screen glitch. Uninstall live lock screen apps like Tetra and enable kid's corner to clear the live lock screen completely. I see "resuming" from time to time on my 512MB/1GB RAM phones, but very rarely on the 2GB 1520.
  • ever try a clean install? It is a last resort solution since it's basically a hard reset. But this is the only route to take if you want to prove it's an OS issue, assuming the hardware is perfect. I usually clean install on a major OS update or when I see anomalies. If I see 'resuming' on my L920, which is very seldom, it would be less than a second. And first try running the clean install without restoring your data.
  • It does that on my phone 1520 and I just got it brand new about a month ago, so I wonder what happened to it to.
  • My lumia has always been on the "resuming" screen frequently ever since the final update of wp8.1 was released :P
  • Your experience is not universal. I have a 1020 and only see it occaisionally and its not long.  
  • My Lumia Icon had this problem but its not entirely an o/s issue... HTC 8x is normal. And fast/fluid. Also great Wi-Fi. Odd the Lumia behaves so poorly on DP. I'd trade an icon straight up for an 8x any day. Went back to it and won't look back until Verizon has something better (with wireless charging)
  • I thought that was just me. Hope they sort it
  • did u try enable kids corner
  • Totally agree... It's annoying sometimes...
  • This is a Microsoft Mobile problem. I used to get it all the time on my 920... Can't even remember if I've ever gotten it on my One.
  • Never gotten it fon my One either.
  • Heading to the update...
  • OS: 8.10.14219.341
  • Thank the lord for PFD. Thanks MS.
  • +925
  • What the purpose updating through preview , first update it then downgrade it to get official firmware update...useless
  • that happened just once rt ??
  • You did not need to downgrade, you just had to wait a bit longer for the firmware.
  • Then don't do it
  • You don't have to downgrade to get firmware updates, the bitlocket thing was a bug, and it only affected those would have bitlocked active, just that ms blocked the update for everyone, you fucktard
  • And if your provider decides that phone they sold you four months ago doesn't deserve any further support or upgrades and will never get new firmware?
  • I got Black while on PFD, got Cyan too, and neither time I had to downgrade, just had to wait a little longer for Cyan due a restart bug that was found after Cyan was released.
  • Downloading...
  • Yeyy cyan on my Verizon icon!! Jk.....
  • We don't joke about such things here.
  • Agreed.
  • Lol
  • Does xda have a work around yet?
  • No.... If the rom was available id instantly send a tip in...
  • But when wp8.1 gdr2 update come
  • Lumia Denim isn't until late December, early 2015
  • Lumia denim is gdr1. It's for those who are not on pfd
  • Denim is Update 1(gdr1)
  • No. Denim is the firmware updates that accompanies update 1 on Lumia phones. It is different than the software updates.
  • This confuses me. Will my HTC get an update late December? Or is it only the Lumia firmware... People saying Update 1 makes me think an update for everyone AND denim for Lumias
  • You're correct, Update 1 is for everyone, firmwares are for Lumia phones.
  • Im aware. But my question is... Is there an update for "everyone" late December AND for Lumias? Or only Lumias. I get the difference
  • Denim is the firmware for Nokia phones only. Nokia like to call the firmware which accompanies a phone update such as 8.1.1 daft names to confuse people who are new to Windows Phones. Denim will introduce features that are exclusive to the Lumia phones only. Hope this clears it up...
  • Why is everyone trying to tell me what Denim is. I own a 925 lol. >>>>>question- aside from DENIM being released this month... Will there be any updates for NON-Lumia phones as well
  • Yes, just installed the new update on HTC 8x with DP.
  • Sadly we know few about it
  • Downloading now
  • Stuck in checking for updates......
  • Turn off Wi-fi and check for update. Turn Wi-Fi back one when it starts to download. Do not ask me why this works. But I've had to do that with almost all my updates.
  • Cool that Cortana is finally in Europe, but could someone please help me find a fix for my phone, Cortana wont pick up any sound, neither will speakerphone. I have tried ask a question forum thing a few times, this is my last resort.
  • Same problem on headset too?
  • I'm not sure , ill check once I get home, which could be a while. Thanks.
  • Let me know. If it works over Bluetooth and wired headset then your mike might be bad. In that case try having it identify music. Higher end Lumias usually use different mikes for music identification and video recording. On my 928 and 920 the music identification mike is on the top of the phone, but the mike used for Cortana is on the bottom.
  • Ok, I will get this info to you asap, which will be later tonight. Thanks for your help.
  • Doesn't work with headphones, can't shazam. Doesn't work with speakerphone. Doesn't work with video recording (sound). Calling without speaker works, and I do not have a Bluetooth item to try it on. I noticed this slightly after cyan update. Lumia 925 (T-mobile)
  • Use Noki Software Recovery tool
  • I agree with master chaos. Try Nokia software recovery
  • My wife's 920 had this exact issue... NEVER found a solution or even another case like it (yours is the first) leading me to believe its a rare problem. Not a hardware problem because tell me worked just fine before DP update.
    Multiple factory resets even failed to fix the issue as did everything else we tried. She and I both got HTC M8s now and works fine (worked fine on my previous phone as well)... If you find a solution let me know if only for shits and giggles at this point.
  • Restart the phone.
  • Wow no one has said "it seems faster" yet ;)
  • Seems faster
  • Here ya go... seems faster. :)
  • it seems faster
  • Seems even faster .
  • Yeah !! Game is on baby
  • 12:5 a.m here
  • Maybe you should ask the correct time from Cortana.
  • Till date there is no official YouTube app , playing videos on ie always Crashes. Decode error....ufffff
  • Mytube or Metrotube is my favorite two. Give those a try.
  • This complaint should be directed in Google's direction. Save your time though, they dont care. I have only had that crash once, and it was yesterday. Wonder if Google is up to something...
  • Exciting stuff. I left the dev preview as soon as Cyan arrived for my device (it seemed to be causing some email sync issues) but might dip my toe again whilst I await Denim.
  • Nokia lumia 925 + Ukraine :D
  • So what?
  • Problem with that?
  • And I was hoping that this update could be the Update 2...
  • Tem Cortana no Brasil com esse update?
  • People would be too happy)
  • I have 730..... Should I go for developers preview? I was on dp on my 720.
  • Yes
  • Are you still using 720... If so don't go for pfd to Lumia 730
  • Nope, I no longer have 720 I sold it. But will it make any difference I already have denim on my 730. Will opting for dp do any good?
  • Of course u should)
    Pfd is newer whatever.
  • Not really. I'd advice you to stay with the current version you have. This update won't make any real difference to you. Although it may kill your battery life, and if that happens you'll have to flash the phone back with Denim again
  • Did you upgrade to DP?? I also bought a new 730 confused whether to fo for the update!! 
  • Yes, I am now on DP..... It's good. You may go for it.
  • They need to update the ability to stop rat developers like Zynga and Gameloft from hijacking our alarm clocks in order to wake me at 3am to tell me my sheep miss me or my newly finished army of ogres is eagerly awaiting to meet me.
  • Lol
  • Bro go home !! You are drunk. :P
  • Drunk? They know what they are doing. We can shut the apps off from showing us notifications. They know it. So they don't send notifications... They back-door Douche-Bag-Sally out alarm clocks knowing we have no way to stop it. Makes me feel like I own an Android.
  • Add benji bananas adventures to that list. I'm completing a level just before I sleep until I spend all my lives and like after 30mins when I'm just about to go in deep sleep the f****** remind me all my lives are full. Such as*****s! Uninstalled straight away an otherwise wonderful game
  • I agree the os shouldnt allow this.. but dont wnat it tooo restrictive.. Solutoin don't play those type of gay games. where people might say "get a life" .. Indie Games dont have thousands or greedy shareholders running them.   and they dont waste your life building troll armies or moats or buy virtual leather trousers for weeks and monts.. just play a few hours and leave it.   like a good movies.. or play 5 minuts here and there.. like smoking crack  
  • But..but...your sheep really do miss you. My God, man..why are you such a heartless brute?
  • "Cortona, tell my sheep its 4am and to go play in traffic"
  • Loolll .. Seems something really funny going on ... XD
  • Haha
  • Enough bro !! Otherwise uh will make me cry ... :P bro patience.. Everything will be fine...
  • Bro... You keep upping your street cred!
  • Man, it's so important) you gotta visit ya sheep at 3 AM)
    * sarcasm *
  • Just disable the game to run in the background with battery sense. No more notifications :)
  • This is how you know out is done on purpose. Those same devs doable the ability to shut the background talks of that app off. If you go to battery saver and go to that app, there is no option to disable it's background tasks. I can't believe they left this wide open for this dirt bag tactic.
  • lol, wat? Do they actually do that?
  • When they do do that, I click Uninstall.  They should quickly learn not to do that...
  • Yep. That new Farmville game is just one example of that. Go ahead and try it is comical at first, then you get suck of ten alarms going off a day.
  • It seems faster
  • You late, mate.
  • I hope this bring new features...
  • This update cost 36MB ...
  • thanks bro, I was about to comment about size.. i am on cellular so it matters...
  • Downloading..
  • What is the space requirement for this in phone memory?
  • With last update microsoft enabled us to use SD card for update so no worries if you have the SD card installed.
  • If it's so, doesn't that mean removal of SD affects the OS?
    Or did I miss something?
  • I believe it's downloaded onto the SD card, then installed to the device's internal storage.
  • Have anyone attention? Daniel Rubino everywhere :)
  • Quick question dude, did you name your screen name after the Processor series? Or the Flower? :p
  • The avatar image says Qualcomm...
  • It's just 43mb update ,
    Bugs fixes
  • And Cortana improvements
  • Did anyone else update and then have a Cortana live tile show up on the start screen?
  • When have Cortana, it already have live tile if you pin Cortana on the start screen. Nothing new.
  • Yeah, it shows news according to my interests
  • And I'm using Cyan, so it's not new feature
  • I don't pin Cortana. But after the update she's now on my start screen.
  • Hey great. You guys go ahead and update while I tie my shoes... Let me know if its ok and ill be right behind ya...
  • Ahah, yeah, I always tell myself I'll do that, and then five minutes later I'm impatient and update it...
  • Same here #Bosnia
  • Anyone knows if the French version will also be available in Quebec, Canada, without having to change our region to France?
  • Check it)
  • Not available...
  • everyone tells verizon users to use PFD but the icon will sometimes not wake up until many seconds after hitting the power button and/or have a "loading" screen to get to the freaking start screen! Are these issues in the Cyan update? Maybe that's why verizon won't give it because that would be understandable. I'm not trying to start drama or anything I'm just saying in fact if someone could prove me wrong or teach me to use PFD on the 929 ICON with no issues i'd be mucho happy! EDIT: oh yeah and the battery drains so freaking fast PFD vs Lumia Black
  • Every windows phone on every network would have the same issue if network operators did not provide accompanying firmware along with a huge MS update. So clearly, Verizon is at fault here in this case.
  • Guys what's your system file's size ??? I'm using pfd and mine is 15.46gb.. :(
  • Sum Ting Wong
  • weird, mines only 3gb what model you using?
  • I will wait next few hours, and then proceed. Just to be sure if everything is fine
  • Where is update 2? Both were suppose to be out this year.
  • What about Cortana to Canada???? This is ridiculous... What are they waiting for?
  • Just change your region to US - you'll get Cortana and it works perfectly fine in Canada - that's what I did.
  • Well if Canadians would just adopt English as their language rather than Canadian then maybe MS would not have to put in so much extra work to get Cortana working there. /s
  • Agreed. I have done the same as you but it would be nice to have the distances in km and the temperatures in Celsius. My only complaint! Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • CR*P! ATIV S users beware! My ATIV S (latest FW w/DP already installed before) is now stuck in an endless boot loop after updating. Removing the battery doesn't help. I hope the only way out of this isn't a reflash...   Unbelieveable how MS fcked up once more  
  • Hey man, same here, Im big fan of MS, using WP(WM) since CE 2003, but after this update, Im so... you know... :-)
  • Facing exactly the Same :( The phone is bricked...
  • Installed the update on HTC 8x T-Mobile US.  Seems....faster.
  • Feems Saster ;)
  • Installing.
  • Has anyone used the DP on an M8 yet? Aside from a few perks there isn't too much of a benefit over the out of the box build of 8.1.1 so I'm debating reinstalling it or not. The main thing I'm wondering is there any real drawback in terms of performance or does the fact that they're not major build changes mean it'll play nice with the current firmware.
  • I'd say, stay with what you have.
  • I hope it fixes vlc!!!! I think m high today!!!
  • Yeah. Be careful, you might fall hard from that height.
  • This is an OS update. the issues with vlc will be fixed by the developers of vlc, not by Microsoft.
  • I knw that....Susmit...nt a dumbo man!!!
  • Maybe he's bout APIs?
    Some of them perhaps was allowed in this update
  • Add cellular data to notification center
  • It is there for me
  • Its the 5th consecutive article from Daniel... Is everyone else on vacation?
  • I'm waiting for someone to say it feels faster...
  • There was lots of people above)
  • I think it would be alot better if they gave information about these updates. Like a post on fb page or something to tell what's included with it.
  • Mobile data is in quick settings, was it always there ??
  • Nope, that's new.
  • No. Bro !!!
  • I hope it fixes battery saver. Unlike the last few battery saver updates
  • 9 more minutes for me.
  • Installed on a German 930, no Cortana to be seen anywhere. Region settings are completely set to german.
    Is it just me or can anyone confirm this issue?
  • Check speech settings !!!! Mate
  • Already did that. That's what I meant with "completely set to German".
  • Can you see Cortana on app list
  • Same problem for me in Italy. Cortana is not in the apps list.
  • check region settings and language.
  • I have the same issue on a German 920
  • How about the GPS? Cortana requires Location Services.
    Press the Search button, Write Cortana & pick Cortana Settings ... It will let you know what's missing.
  • There isn't any Cortana settings..
  • Go to Settings, swipe to the left for the Applications page. You'll find Cortana right at the top.
  • Same problem on my german Lumia 920... Also switching region and speech settings to USA does not bring Cortana. Reverting back to German also doesn't help.
  • Same for me with Lumia 920 in Italy. This is crazy, even English Cortana disappeared!
  • Tried the same, full US-conversion, no Cortana. Given there are others with this problem from different countries, it doesn't seem to be tied to language/country. Device issue? Account issue?
    I've got no clue. But I fear it doesn't work, no matter what we try...
  • Same here... Lumia 920 with latest DP update. Set to German, rebooted, Cortana neither in app list nor in settings/applications. GPS activated - already was... Help?
  • I has this issue for french. In language menu I has english for Voice so after a général reset I set french and now cortana runs
  • +1520
  • Think that it feels faster now!
  • you can turn on off mobile data now on the notification centre
  • R u kidding ???
  • AWESOME!!! :D
  • yay!
  • This guy says the truth man! Thanks for the tip.
  • Ehh, I will just pass on it. Updating basically makes your phone inoperable for an hour and says 30-60% of the battery, and unknown bug fixes isn't worth that right now.
  • Set it to go at 2AM while you're sleeping and its plugged in.
  • It was actually a pretty quick update, maybe 10-15 minutes. +1520
  • Awesome!
  • IS THERE GAPLESS PLAYBACK???  (since it requires an OS update to the native music player)
  • It does not require an OS update and there is no native player.
  • Anything else than cellular mobiledata in notification center?
  • Cortana languages
  • Tried updating my Icon (have all previous updates) and when it installed and rebooted, I just get a completely blue screen with these words in tiny, tiny font (I can barely read it):   (0% complete) If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for the error: PROCESS INITIALIZATION FAILED   Anyone else get this? Not sure if I should reboot manually or wait or... don't want to mess things up even more.
  • Well, I did a soft reset (vol down + power) and it came back with spinning wheels and started the update process again... seems to work now. Phew. :)
  • Same exact thing happened on my Icon
  • Brings up live Cortana tile
  • Cortana always had a live tile.  What do you see that's new?
  • This update have Cortana in Spanish :D
    Al fin Cortana en español!
  • Just updated
  • Finally cellular data in notification center
  • Can anyone tell me what's in this update apart from cellular in notification centre ??
  • So far commenters have only noticed that + the activation of alpha Cortana in Europe.  And the usual, faster OS speeds :)
  • That's great if celulur data is in notification .....yippee
  • No bug fixes still the same C00D4E84 error all the time and I can't see the volume menu -.-
  • Sounds like you need to do a hard reset when you have some free time.
  • The joke is that I already did it 2 times -.-
  • Oh, mine is going to install at 3am.. Yeah right, like someone on DP is going to wait... lol
  • Nice new features: you can now add cellular data and quiet hours as quick actions to the action center.
  • Quite hours is already available, but cellular! That is new
  • Ooo you can. thats a feature everybody has been asking for.
  • So does this update make my phone waterproof or allow rapid charge via the microwave?? 
  • Does this update add 3.5 inches to the size of my um phone?
  • The home screen actually feels much smoother when scrolling there and also returning from apps.
    My Skype still has an issue though where incoming calls don't come through unless I'm in the app :(
  • I agree with your first comment. Don't know about the second one since I hardly use skype.
  • There is Cortana's icon/tile on my home screen. Never put it there before. And it is in Beta version now. No more Alpha.

  • Am getting so tired of this shit! We who don't live in the Us(Or Uk) NEVER get anything new or extraordinary. I am from Sweden and believe me, Windows Phone will never grow here.
  • Calm down, lol, its not that serious.
  • I said it before, but we can use the dedicated "Search button" on the phone, but the problem is that we can't change from Bing.com to Bing.se so the search results are terrible. We don't have Cortana, no Swype and so on. Why should we stay?
  • I understand that you're frustrated, but cursing and getting your blood pressure raised isn't good ,over technology. If WP isn't for you because of the lack of features in your region, happily switch to another platform. Don't ever get mad over simple things like this.
  • If your phone is unlocked , just switch your region to US and register for preview for developers.
  • I am already a part of "Preview for developers" :) And whit Swedish settings:)
  • Switch region to US. There's more apps there. ;)
  • Yes, i know but then I can't use my local language:/ So Email and SMS will not be on Swedish then :/
  • Can anyone help me I.e,
    How to activate Cortana in Indian region / Indian Language..
  • Hi! Chirag here from Pune.
    Just go to settings and change your region to US. Then download English (US) in speech. And move up US English on language settings. Cortana here!

  • So when do we get actual features. I am waiting for a refresh
  • I would call having the ability to turn off cellular data in the action center a feature.
  • -_-
  • I got the upgrade and is Cortana working in Spanish
  • I found it interesting that I updated it on both my Icon (F#cking Verizon still on WP OS 7.8... Sorry meant Firmware Black) & my 1020 (Firmware Cyan) at the same time & the Icon had 17 updates & the 1020 had 21 updates & the 1020 was done installing all the updates about 5 minutes before the Icon was finished installing. Interestingly enough I can't seem to find a change log to see what the different updates were for each phones... I'll save some of you time yes I know they're were bug fixes & Cortana updates, but it would be nice for MS to post a list so we know what all has been fixed & updated...
  • It seems like it may have fixed the screen blacking out issue I used to experience while checking visual voicemail on my 635...i never have that issue on my 925.
  • I am happy with my current OS. A piece of advice. Always do a clean install rather than an update to avoid the lags.
  • Mobile data shortcut is now added to Notification Center. Hooooooooray!!!!!!!
  • That's great
  • Sweet I love updates
  • Will it be faster
  • I just want the update that was talked about here over the 925/1020 stutters and performance issues!!! +925
  • ok, installed the update, my phone is fully set to german. However, theres no trace of cortana. no settings menu, no app in the app list, the home screen or anywhere else. keeping the search button pressed just brings up the regular voice recognition.   what can i do?
  • Same here... +920
  • Same here on a French 930.
  • I has the same issue for french because in voice set my phone has two language, English and french. I did a general reset and select french and now cortana is here.
  • With "General reset", do you mean hard reset? Tried a few soft resets already.
  • I did a reset with reset button In about menu
  • Thanks, you made my day :-) I saved everything and did a hard reset, Cortana is here!
  • Hope it fixes the camera crash issue in 920 and 1020 , some phones the camera crashes and closes. 
  • Cortana is great, but the tie with the region setting has been a huge and very frustrating mistake from the beginning. Imagine how easy it would be to have a Cortana setting page, slider to enable/disable, select menu to choose from available languages (with beta/alpha in brackets). All Windows phone users worldwide would have been able to use it from day one if they wanted. Nobody cares that a beta version does not use the correct currency or does not know all local places. Anybody would understand that she cannot perfectly identify local intonations. There are so many things Cortana can do that doesn't depend on regional settings. Instead, people have either to change their region (meaning they cannot buy from the store, among other inconveniences) or wait until 2022 when maybe Cortana will be available in small countries. Take Switzerland, I speak French, or English, but cannot use either version of Cortana. Such a shame!
  • Nothing yet here
  • Anyone know if this includes a fix for the black screen (CPU failing to come out of deep sleep) issue Microsoft confirmed affected the 925 and 1020 models?
  • Size of the update?
  • Still haven't updated but seems faster lol
  • In my country, the way I see it, it will be 2200 when Cortana will be available.
  • Nothing special! :/
  • WHERE IS MY CYAN FOR MY DEFECTIVE LUMIA ICON !!!
  • The German voice of Cortana is awful. :|
    Sounds like one of these budget localizations of a game; the nuances in the voice as it is for the US English voice are missing. But well, it's something. :)
  • Yeah, that's true, I hope that it'll get better over the time.
  • Installed it on my phone and it's great to have Cortana in German, even if not everything works as it does in the UK version, but it's more naturally to talk to her in my native language, and it's kinda funny how she sings the Laternenlied. ^^
  • I'm in Italy and I've just installed the update, but there's no trace of Cortana, not even in Settings, why??? :'(
  • Did you set your phones language to Italian?
  • It's under Applications (swipe left from Settings)
  • My language and region are set to Italy as always, but there's no trace of Cortana on the phone. This is weird. I even tried to change language and put Italian back again, but had no luck.
  • Still cant even take the last update.....still getting an error of 80070570......"The update was downloaded, but, couldn't be opened" WTF, even MS support on Twitter cant help....
  • Hm my 1320 had some spinning Wheel issues. After a couple resets without the sd it finaly worket ...pffff
  • My 1320 went through without any errors. Cyan FI-variant.
  • For 1020 too?
  • Got cellular data shortcut in action centre
  • Im using it on a 1520, every APP starts now much faster. On the most APPs the Progressbar doesnt apear anymore. very impressed
  • Bye bye status tiles app ...data tile was the only one I was using
  • 920, downloaded the update and pressed install.  Came back later and the phone is totally dead. No issues with my 920 up until now apart from some jerkiness which others have seen and posted about online.  What to do now?  Pressing and holding the power button just does nothing and the screen remains black and the phone totally unresponsive.  Will have to try a hard reset I think...... which means I lose everything.
  • Still no joy on my 1020 in UK,has anyone got it in UK.
  • Over here in China, Cortana is still seriously screwed up.  I have my phone (1520) set to language = English (USA) and region = USA.  But I get my news headlines, weather etc. in Chinese which makes it functionally useless.  I wish they'd fix this.  I've been complaining for months. The Cortana search functionality works as advertsied.  Only the "Interests" part is screwed.
  • Update is good on my Lumia 720.
    Improved speed and smoothness.
    Thank you for data connection on action centre and Cortana still not available in Indian region.
  • Download at Update at 06:30AM ICT (Lumia 620)
  • Battery drains fast after the update. It kind of bug may be. Anyone experience the same.?
  • Downloading for my 920 right now...
  • Windows phone store not working properly
  • Why cant we have more than 5 actions on top? I think just .make a slider to show all actions instead of having to pick which one can be displayed.
  • Didn't anyone noticed that there was one update before this "14219" update for Lumia 1020? It is now faster and "resuming" issue is gone.
  • after update battery drain out quikcly. is anybuddy have the same experiance?  
  • They'd better fix the OS and how it handles apps. There are apps that will kill the battery and switch off the phone even if it's connected to charger. That's unheard of in the world of normally functioning devices. When you have say 5% of battery and start an app like YoutubeHD it will drain battery faster than it charges, which is idiotic, because the power from the charger should be enough to at least keep the phone alive.
  • This article is miscataloged. I use this URL: http://www.windowscentral.com/content/articles/phones which WC created to get just Windows for Phones articles. But this article does not appear. I only know it because someone posted a link to it. I hope I'm not missing more news because of similer mistakes. I have no interest in Xbox at all or getting general Windows news here which seems to be the majority at times. So its important that the Phone news only option works.
  • It actually seems faster. In every aspect. The OS itself, charging and for some reason the battery life improved in my 520!
  • NEW UPDATE!!!,,,, here and there and there.....and then back to original 8.1 with lumia software recovery tool yes i being there LOL......
  • Meh...
  • Is Cortona available for Belgium or the Netherlands yet?
  • Yes battery life improved also for 920
  • My Internet Explorer seems to have stopped crashing when watching videos on youtube.
  • Mobile Data shortcut on Notification center is finally there!!!
  • Cortana unavailable here (NOT the alpha one ... the normal US version, that used to work until weeks ago ) :( Just updated the phone ... Lumia 720, Denin, OS version is 8.10.14219.341 keyboard: English language: English (United States) region: United States, English (United States) speech: English (United States) time zone automatically: off I´ve been updating through Preview for Developers app since 8.1 release. Changed the Internet explorer default search to Bing.   What else am I missing ? :(
  • Well... after a second hard reset, things work fine now (but i got rid off the 'Preview for Developers' app) BR
