Nokia adds personalized notes in latest Glance screen update

Nokia has today pushed out an update for its Glance screen. This Lumia exclusive feature enables consumers to add images and display the clock while the Windows Phone screen is locked. It's possible to configure the Glance screen to display at intervals, as well as setting night modes, but Nokia is extending functionality even further.

This latest system app release introduces a new feature for consumers, making it possible for custom messages to be created for display when the screen is locked.

Glance has been bumped to version 2.0.1.4, which introduces new functionality in the settings area. A new drop down box is available, allowing consumers to select between notifications, custom text or nothing at all regarding the Glance screen. Selecting notifications will mirror the lower notification bar on the Glance screen, while 'my text' lets you create custom messages (see above).

We strongly recommend a cheeky reboot before configuring the Glance settings

Hitting 'my text' will take you through to a simple configuration screen, letting you enter custom text and select the size of the text. You can also pin this screen to your Start screen, just in case you wish to frequently change what's displayed on your device when it's locked. 

Please note that we were prompted to reboot our Windows Phones after installing the latest Glance update. Extras + Info has also been bumped to a new version (version 3.4.3.5), but we assume this update is connected to the new Glance features.

You can download both Extras + info and Glance from the Nokia Collection on the Windows Phone Store. Scan the QR codes below on your Lumia Windows Phone (Extras + Info is the first code, Glance the second code). We've also had reports that Lumia 620 owners can now use Glance. Let us know in the comments if you're now able to configure Glance screen on your Windows Phone after this update.

  • And 620 can use this. Even without black. But why, when? When black for 620 coming?:(((
  • Ikr, i use a 620 and I'm not changing my fake touch screen till 620 gets black
  • I hope it should be soon, in the uk it is the only device without black.
    Btw, the new glance update lowers the glance resolution to how it was in amber :(
  • Even in India, it is the only phone that has not recieved the Lumia Black update yet. I really think they are ignoring Lumia 620. :(
  • Same thing in Finland, 620 is the only one without Black.
  • I think most of countries. Only 620 that's still running on amber. Maybe, beside hating the number 4, nokia now hates number 6:((
  • Same in SA. It is the only freakin' device without Black here, 520,720,820,etc they all got it. Not sure what is going on.
  • my 920 runs on amber plus gdr3 and runs this app fine infact, all black apps works fine on the amber firmware
  • The extras + info update is to fix a small bug concerning Nokia Camera where you couldn't reedit smart sequence shots.
  • Maybe it's because Black won't come to the 620 and this is a consolation
  • Do u got notifications on glance? Coz even i m also using the same.I updated touch but no change
  • Yes I did, even different colors for glance screen came along
  • Yeah pretty shameful that (according to some numbers) it's the third most popular Lumia after the 520 and 920, and yet checking the charts sees it sitting in 'Waiting for Approval' for Black. It's not even 'Coming soon..'...sheesh..what's going on?    
  • LOL the sentence in the photo!!
  • Looks great on my new Icon... oh wait
  • Will look better on my 930, unless I get a 1030.
  • I bet it does❕ I saw that phone yesterday, and wow!!!! That's got to be the best designed phone since the 925.. I have to admit that it does resemble a iPhone, but that's not a bad thing at all... As a matter of fact, it resembles the iPhone so much that it seems almost intentional on Nokias part.. And that tapered glass looks, and feels, just amazing.. We should've had this device in November❕
  • +920
  • Please tell me that was sarcasm. The 925 was the best designed unquestionably but the 920 and 1520 are WAY better than the Icon. That thing is just plainlly boring and like a brick with a stuffed back. The front is great, though.
  • That's what I thought until I actually saw one in person.. Have you actually held this device?...
    ......................
    BTW I have a 1520, and a 920, so my opinion is super unbiased, and worthy..
  • +929
  • I see what you did there!
  • Text doesnt work on my 820
  • Works only when not on Night Mode.
  • It works fine on my unlocked 820! (Spain)
  • How do you add a picture to glance?
  • Glance Background beta.
  • This Glance Background thing is looking awesome on my 925! :D
  • Via a separate app called as glance background. Still in beta
  • Jared Hayes asked "How do you add a picture to glance?" Search for and install Glance Background app.
  • Could you guys share a link? Can't find it on the store...
  • I can't find it in the store?
  • Must have been pulled. Sure it will return.
  • http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=7c3378ff-2844-480b-b2e2-783537201b84
  • When you have glance background goto www.glancescreens.com for lots of backgrounds to use. App is almost finished and will be in store soon
  • Thanks
  • I love glancescreens.com, and to know there is an app coming is just great. I have quite a few I've created myself that I plan to upload tonight.
  • I cant update yet, maybe because I am not on Black on my 925
  • I don't have black on my 925 and it works. EDIT: Might be because I have GDR3 preview
  • I have the preview as well
  • GRD3 preview bricked my Samsung Ativ S.Won't be doing that anymore,now a have a 600 dollar paper weight.
  • Sell that $600 paper weight on eBay!
  • Bring it to a Samsung Service Center and they will fix it on the spot...
  • Worked on my 925 after downloading Lumia updater and updating it that way took four try's but worked eventually
  • I've installed in my 620 and work nice
  • No change in my 620 :'(
  • But how its not working on my Lumia 620 on Amber :'(:-\
  • You gotta restart your phone after installing glance and extras+info.
  • time display on glance screen getting smaller after update on my lumia 620. Text display is working fine.
  • Extras+info updated as well. Noticing better screen response on 1520.
  • The screen isn't overly sensitive?
  • When scrolling, many 1520 owner get an unwanted press. After these updates, I haven't had the issue. http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/Nokia-Lumia/Lumia-1520-Screen-Sensitivit...
  • I restarted,I can see text/personal message option but no notifications option on my 620.Why?? :(
  • I think this is Black dependency
  • Because you beed Black for the Glance notifications
  • Its okay. I think it is automatically turned on when you turn text on :;) tried and tested.
  • GDR3 prev for dev works fine even though no notifications option.
  • Yup,Eroselim,you were right!even though there is no notification option in glance settings,I still get notifications AND personalized msgs.Thanks alot :D
  • You're much welcome! :)
  • I have the GDR3 dev preview with NO Black update...and I have notifications :)
  • i have my L620 with amber dev preview, and nitification is showing in glance, you should restart your phone twice
  • I'm on black and I get the same problem... Lumia 1020.
  • Same with my 1020. Don't see any section on Glance where I can add text after updating and restarting.
  • Why not do both Nokia, notifications AND custom texts???
  • EXACTLY,same as I was thinking. :D
  • Both custom texts and notifications are showing on my 1020.
  • How??
  • I set it to custom text, and put some words to the text box. Then one moment later I got a missed call. Both are showing on the glance screen.
  • I've got my calendar details set for showing on my lock screen. Guess what shows on my glance screen now too: my calendar details. They are on top and my notifications are on the bottom. Way to go Nokia; homerun!
  • This is pretty awesome...but is there anyway I can configure this to show the date on glance?
  • WPCs reporting on this is a bit hard to understand. notification icons will always show. the setting only applies an additional text. selecting "notifications" will enable the information that is defined as "detailed notification", in my case i got a missed call and the text said "<Name here> missed call" So fucking awesome!
  • +1020
  • i really dont see this feature on my phone that youre talking about, please explain more. 
  • 1. Glance Screen Info set to "off": http://i.imgur.com/tjLAYrk.jpg 2. Glance Screen Info set to "custom tex"t: http://i.imgur.com/F1d6G9v.jpg 3. Glance Screen Info set to "notifications": http://i.imgur.com/2R06RNO.jpg as you can see, the notification for the whatsapp message is in all three photos. But the last image actually shows me that someone has called me, ON THE GLANCE SCREEN! :D. The setting will show you whatever the app set for "detailed status" displays.
     
  • I think that's what happening, when you set to "Text". My understanding is as follows: 'Off" is Off. "Notifications" is only notifications and "Text" Is notifications + Text.    
  • I hate that the messages turn off after awhile..
  • I hate that the messages turn off after a while..
  • Glance notifications are now working after this update. My phone is Lumia 620 without Black.
    Although the clock resolution has distorted.
  • So you are saying that you can see notifications on the glance screen without the Black update?
  • Same as my case. No black but with Glance notifications :)
  • Yeah, notifications are showing up on glance on 620 without black.
  • When will black update be available for Lumia 620 users!!! :( ;(
  • Oh what's with the part saying Lumia 620 users can use glance? We can already use it... Oh wait.... You meant --glance--, that's right - we still don't have black damn! Anyway, great to see Nokia suddenly providing new stuff.... If only us 620 users had black..............
  • Is glance not available for the 620? Because I have an L925 with no black and can see notifications on my glance screen
  • You don't have to have Black to do this!!!
  • Can anyone else confirm we need Black for these updates?
  • nop, you dont need black.
  • I have no updates on either app
  • Same here, no update shows up for me... with Black/Update 3.
  • You have to wait till they send you the update. They do it by country.
  • I do not have Black...i got the update notification this morning. If you don't use the notification, use the link on this page to get to it. Glance updated and now can see notifications on my Glance screen
  • updated glance screen and restarted phone too...but its same as before nothing changed in mine Lumia 620
  • Update extras and info too .. Might help.
  • ya updated that too.....still nothing.... :(
  • I'm having same problem. Updated both extras and glance (though in updates it really didn't even show them downloading...really fast otherwise) and my glance options on my Lumia 920 with the Black updates applied doesn't change.
  • Same here...i dont see any change in glance, no option for adding text at all.
  • You need to go to glance settings in settings page, not the glance app
  • Which glance app? Is there a Glance app as well? I dont think so. We are talking about settings page only....
  • Same here too in my 925 with Black update
  • Same here on my L720
  • Tested. Not very useful.
  • This comment sure is useful, though.
  • the "notification" setting is damn usefull. you can now see the information from the app defined as "detailed notification" on the glance screen.
  • can you please tell me how did u enable the "detailed notification" feature? 
  • go to settings , glance, glance screen info, show my text
  • For some reasons there aren't any updates showing for neither extras nor glance on my Lumia 820. I've got the Black update, but I'm not enrolled in the preview program at the moment though.
  • You did try going directly to the store though? Update might be just delayed.
  • Yeap, scanned the code using bing vision and will check in a few.
  • same here though i am enrolled
  • Please bring back Glance to the Lumia Icon... I can care less about the pictures and text on my glance screen. All I care about is the time and notifications.
  • Agreed! Icon would be better off with glance!
  • +++ Icon without Glance put a real damper on my purchase decision.
  • It also shows the lockscreen text on top when set to lockscreen notifications
  • I have the latest version of Glance installed on my 1520 and the text option doesn't show...
  • My 920 did not show it either, so I restarted the phone a couple times and tried to update the app and it worked. :)
  • I've had Glance on my 620 (Amber) for ages but there's no new update for it today that I can see.
  • Glance settings not working after this update on my Lumia 620
  • Very nice, useful for when I need to remember something important
  • extras+info,nokia treasure tag also got updated!!
  • Yes, glance notifications are working on my 620. On GDR3. Does this mean... No Black!?
  • Im wondering if they did this for people not getting black. Makes sense. I got it on my L925 but I am getting black soon. Proof they are pushing it out regardless of black.
  • Nice. Love love love love...
  • The Nokia Motion Monitor Beta can display on Glance screen info. Pretty cool.
  • have you got this to work i did the settings but it wasnt showing anything  
  • I know right! I think they will fix that in an update.
  • Try reinstalling Motion monitor and enabling Glance info through the Motion Monitor app.
  • Link to the app please :3
  • Download SysApp pusher.  This will take you a lot further than a single link.  Not being snarky, just the truth. 
  • Yeah, I found the app later, thought it was a different one from the app made to the 1520. Thanks though!
  • I have updated and have no text option in Glance. L925
  • Update both Glance and extras+info. Open both apps and when it says restart... Restart. Should work now.
  • Well, I updated both and got no message about restarting. I restarted the Phone by myself but nothing yet
  • Same problem here. Didn't get a restart message. I do have the glance screen beta....not sure if that is interfering perhaps?
  • Uhhhhhhhhh not sure. Do you have Update 3?
  • I got it now. For some reason I had two updates for glance, the second one supplied the text option
  • Tested, and it's working beautifully on my Nokia Lumia 920. It now says "Live Long and Prosper" which has been my greeting text on all my cell phones for as long as I could remember.
  • Here, 1000 internet points.
  • How can you post anything on this when the Icon lacks Glance.
    WPCentral should bitch along with us in every article !
  • Won't work on mine. +Icon
  • Sent you guys a Tip like 4 hours ago that L925 without Black now has Glance Notifications as well as everything else mentioned in article... Now I could care less about TMO slow ass with black. This is what I wanted.
  • Nice, I hope this works on the 810 as well, cant wait to try this when I go home!
  • On setting it to show text, i have both text as well as notifications,surprising but awesm..
  • Hey you're right! Notifications will still show even if I select text on my phone. If you have "notifications" selected, it'll show your calendar events on the top of the screen. Pretty cool
  • Ah, cool. I hated that huge calendar text. So empty textfield it is!
  • Is it now available for lumia 625
  • Looks good. Just need network+ to allow call divert on CV920
  • Awesome sauce
  • When is Black coming out for 620?
  • Why does this need to replace glance notifications? Can't they both be on screen at the same time?
  • Yeah that's a deal breaker for me. :c
  • It doesn't replace them
  • It will not replace the notifications! You will have both those small notifications at the bottom of your glance and the main notification (like whose calls you missed) on the top of the screen! It is awesome, give it a try :)
  • Weird! On my 620 I have could glance since always, so it's rare when I read comment like "I can now use it on my 620". So, glance doesn't allow notifications, or my glance doesn't show notifications. Anyway, I just want black now :/
  • It's showing notifications now on 620 :)
  • Me not :( how do you that?
  • what is "glance pin board app agent" it got updated with update of extras+info on L520.. even though it doesnt support glance...
  • "Don't touch my phone"
  • No change on my 620
  • Yeah me too...it required gdr3 I think..and I don't have it on my L620... :(
  • black update gonna hit 620 on 24th feb -Local nokia care center
  • This is good for adding lost/found information to your Glance screen. Some information, or a phone number to call when the phone is found.
  • You can set this new personalization to show you your main notification, so it can also display your missed calls, Facebook status or Tweets. I liked it a lot.
  • Does this feature require gdr3?? ..bcoz I don't have gdr3 nor black update on my Lumia 620..
  • We love you Nokia!!
  • I deleted Glance when it started messing up with my screen. After unlock (screen) sometimes it would change colors to Very High Contrast. L928 btw
  • Same here on L1020, it just happens occasionally. Still using it though.
  • Nah, I decide not mess up with my screen, if something happens can't return phone (lost its box and receipt with it))
  • Dude, it's software issue!
  • Yuck. The text appears at the top, and disappears after a few moments even when "always on" is selected. Only the time and 5 icon notifications remain. Seems like a poorly designed 3rd party app now.
  • If you hover your hand over the front sensor, the top text reappears. Anyways I agree that the top text or notification should be present no matter what height the clock + small notifications are. I am bummed by this aspect.
  • Yes it does, thanks for the tip!
    I still wish it was as before, between the clock and notifications and always visible.
  • 520 ?
  • Now all we 620 users require is double tap to awake and i will stop bitching....
  • Abhishek have u got notifications aftr update?
  • Yeah... But there is also a bug... When the time keeps moving up and down the custom text seems to disappear....Fyi have dev preview ...EDIT: they appear on the glance screen... But no explicit setting.... All notifications that show up on lock screen also show up in glance screen that is all that is new for us 620 users
  • No available updates on my 920 running Black. I even restarted phone.
  • L620 with GDR3 DEV PREV installed.... still waiting for BLACK !!!  Nokia has no love for the L620 wordlwide!  I now have the option to add custom text to the lock screen, but the text only appears outside night mode hours or when night mode is turned off.   
  • Oh fuck my l520
  • Anyone plz help me.I have no change even aftr updating on 620 :(
  • Please give gdr3 and black update for Lumia 620... Plzzz its a humble request..
  • After so many improvements in glance, now what is the diff between the lock screen and glance ? Wat is the added adv with glance ?
  • On amoled I guess it saves battery. And it's also pretty cool :P
  • The main thing is the options. The glance screen shows the information that you want to always have readily available (like the time and missed calls and texts). You don't have to have all the information enabled on the glance screen. Or, if you want, you can put all the information on the glance screen and make the lockscreen show your favorite app's information (like wpcentral!). Nokia is just giving you the options. You can do with them what you want. :)
  • Damn it, I have black onmy Lumia 625. Updated the new extras+info still glance aint available.
  • The custom text will be great for a reminder for something you have to do that day !!
  • But no official Glance background yet??
  • Installed and restarted but new options still not available on my L620.
  • restart your phone again, i restarted mine twice
  • Wish I could have glance and double tap to wake on my 920, but dust is covering the sensors making it useless :( gotta get this to nokia support...
  • Rich - "This Lumia exclusive feature enables consumers to add images..."  Are images part of Glance?  I thought that was "Glance Background Beta"?
  • notifications works fine on my L620 ( with gdr3 dev preview )
  • I'm still in shock that the Lumia Icon is missing this feature. The Glance option not being available is literally the only thing I don't like about the new Icon, I love that feature.
  • not working on my ''black'' L920 :(
  • Where is "lock screen notification"?? There is no option for that in my L925.. (Black)
  • Settings > lock screen
  • In my Lumia 1020 when I choose "lock screen notifications", Glance is showing the remaining battery time too! I'm using the app Battery Performance to show the detail status on lock screen.
  • Now I get it... Glance is showing the information from any app configured to show the detailed status on lock screen (when "lock screen notifications")!!!
  • OFF TOPIC
    I just wrote two comments here, but this thread doesn't appear in "participated" (using wpc app). This isn't first time happening, how to fix it?
  • Commenting here wont appear in participated... Only posting or commenting in forums those things appear in the participated part...
  • Might be a good idea to put contact info in case your phone is lost
  • I tried to get it to show the Motion Moniter screen to show up on Glance but it is not working. anyone got any ideas how to solve this?
  • Try reinstalling Motion Monitor.  That worked for me.
  • I want the bigger clock back :(
  • No changes in my 620. I wonder when black update will be out for lumia 620! :( 
  • The double tap to unlock work much better now. Before it only works 25% of the time for me.
  • Brilliant
    Shopping list goes to glance.
    Yota screen on a Lumia!
  • Nice... Works fine
  • Doesn't work on my 1020 '(
  • Option "Always on when charging" disappeared after this update! No other changes. (L620)
  • This is really awesome. I truly love this update. Installed it on my phone and it's working perfect. It's displaying the text that I have set. :)
  • My extras + info is not working if i try la unch from Settings on my 920.. It first asked me to uninstall it, which I didn't as im not sure if that will have some strange consequences. Now I've launched it again and it just says Loading...... And when I open the app switcher now it says @C:\Data\Programs\{23.... Instead of Extras and info. Is it fine to uninstall / reinstall?
  • Oh wait - decided to work now :)
  • "Wake Me, When You Need Me..." is going on my glance screen.
  • <3 <3 <3
  • Thank you for this!
  • Are you guys kidding me? A friend of mine has been using Glance for at least one whole month on his Lumia 620 and he's not running the Black Update -.-
  • Nice, but why can't I use Facebook beta on glance anymore? Changed after the last Facebook updates
  • I currently am using Facebook Beta on my notifications screen after the recent updates...
  • I just looked on the support page for the updates, the country variant of 620 for Denmark was marked as "Available" for a while, today it was marked "Not available". What is the problem with the 620 and Black?
  • Freaking awesome!!! Now I see my missed calls on the glance screen of my 920! Loved this.
  • i have my notification showing on my glance
    L620 here
  • My glance screen doesn't have the new features after updating on my 1520...now restart prompt - so I power cycled...maybe I should reinstall it...
  • Just to be clear, I cannot remember entirely becuase I've had glance for a long time on my 928. Now that I have the Nokia Icon I know at this time I don't have Glance, but does that also take away my "Double tap to wake" option too?
  • It works great on Nokia Lumia 620. I have been using it for a week.
  • I didn't know that WPCentral has tiger blood.
  • im on amber gdr3 and all the lumia black apps work fine on my 920
  • Both text and notifications works great on my 909 :)
  • Nothing for the L625 :'( This sucks.
  • Oh yes! That extras version update seems to have solved my touch issues with 1520! ( At least up till now).
  • Hmm, updated both extras+info and glance on my 928 but don't see the new options under glance.
  • Downloaded both, restarted, nothing changed that I can tell??? 925 T-MOBILE
  • Pretty cool, I have it set to just notifications and now it also displays my calendar details up at the top. I assume this is because that is what I have set for show detailed status. It goes away after like 30 secs to a minutes though.
  • I really don't want to see the detailed status even for a few seconds. Furthermore it doesn't align properly. We should have an option to see the details or not.
  • Nice update but too bad that the time for the calendar event is not displayed.
  • Don't know what is going on but I can't upgrade either one. When I scan the code both tell me it is already in my collection. Extras+info app says it is 3.4.3.5  1/10/14 Glance app says it is 2.0.1.4  11/25/13 Both are the same versions as mentioned above but with earlier dates. 920 on AT&T
  • I'm having the same problem. At one point it said there was an update, but once I clicked on it the downloads screen popped up and said no downloads in progress. Neither was updated and it's back to just saying they're in my collection.
  • I had the same problem.  I restarted my phone twice and it finally showed up and let me download.
  • Thanks. I did a power cycle and both updated but to newer versions than listed above. Extras+info is v3.6.2.3 Glance is v2.2.0.6  
  • I had a bug with call filter app. Whenever i opens it before it will crash the app. Now after the extra+info update its now working properly.
    EDIT: My text doesn't show when night mode is active. 1020 w/ Black.
  • Right under the night mode settings, it states that night mode turns off glance screen info
  • *patiently waits for Nokia to sort out the silly resolution/PPI issues so I can have Glance again on my Icon and be the happiest WP user ever*
  • Text does not work when glance is set to  "night mode". 928 on Verizon.
  • Not able to see the new features as others on my Lumia 620 : (
    Even did a reboot
    Any suggestions ?
  • Same wid me dude i guess it requires black update or atleas developer preview
  • But everyone are getting that feature without GD3 
    Don't know why ?
  • No, only ppl who installed dev preview are enjoying rest of d ppl are still waiting for black like us and my local nokia care center executive said that black update for 620 gonna hit servers on 24th feb
  • Okay, thanks for the information Buddy
  • I don´t believe it.... :-(
  • Why don't these apps show up as updates in the store?
    Everytime I've to open the app (in store) using wpcentral provided link.
  • mine always shows in store....i updated around 2-3 hours b4 wpc news.....
  • I think it gets updated 24 hours after its released to the store. so you wont get the notification till tomorrow unless you update manually.
  • Lol ppl who want to use it cannot use it. It works perfectly for ppl who are already sick with glance.
  • I guess this is just another Nokia software fail. Restarted my L620 for 5 times already and still no new options available. Before last reboot I changed Glance setting from "peek" to "always on". Guess what? After last reboot it was set to "peek" again with night mode on. Glance needs another update ASAP!
  • u can add emoticons also in text on glance....just tried with my name with a happy face :)
  • Hmm... I updated glance, extras+info didn't want to apparently. Glance still works, but I cant launch the glance settings page now.... Lumia 928
  • Works only with white text :'(
  • Well, it's a pitty that the text is not wrapped when it reaches the right edge of the screen. I'm using notifications from Twitter.
  • Notifications apperar on L620 without black!! But clock and notifications seems to be a little disorted.
  • do u have dev preview installed?
  • on 1520 nokia motion monitor beta option is also shown
  • t-mobile 925 black update and apps updated , no text notification function avaialble
  • work fine on my 620 w/ GDR3 dev :D
  • Why the are not giving glance support to Nokia Lumia 625 in new update ?
  • How did they get the image into the glance screen?! I want! :D
  • Really a cool feature... Waiting for background pic setting.. Any alternate apps in market???
  • Anyone noticed serious battery drainage after updating Glance? My 920 lost 20% in 30 minutes. Did not even use phone / screen off.
  • Hello. i've a issue with last glance and extras+info update. my phone lumia 620 have installed the glance 2.2.0.6 (today) but the store show me an update with glance 2.0.1.4 (25/11/2014) my phone lumia 620 have installed the extras+info 3.6.2.3 (today) but the store show me an update with extras+info 3.4.3.5 (10/01/2014) so, anybody has this issue?? how i can solve it?    
  • Awesome, workin it on my L1520
  • I'm using 720.. There is no option for adding an image or somethin... Only text?...
  • Hey its not working in my 920 I have black updates in my mobile....
  • Is it true that glance doesn't work on the new Icon? If so why not?
  • Verizon Icon? glance not supported
  • update for these 2 apps where pushed an hour ago for lumia 925 T-Mobile USA , rescan the codes and update both of them have fun!
  • So if I'm reading these comments correctly, you cannot add a background unless you have a separate app that is currently not available in the store and have to go to a site to use? Weak.
  • Is the app MPAGLANCE?
  • Its called Glance Background by Nokia, and it can't be found in the store because its currently in BETA but can be downloaded if you have a direct link
  • I though glance bumped to version 2.2.0.6
  • Is it really that hard to figure out? So many people don't get it....
  • How do I get to add a picture like on the screenshot?
  • Glance background beta.
  • Can't change my Glance setting after update on my Lumia 620
  • Not on my 1520 att
  • Worked on my 1520 ATT version...Do you not have the updates listed in the Store app? Check you glance version info and reply with what you currently have.
  • I saw the update this morning but I still get the same stuff, nothing changes.
  • Worked on my 1520 ATT version...Do you not have the udpates listed in the Store app?  Check you glance version info and reply with what you currently have.
  • Why not 521? Does glance require compass in its operation? Not likely. In update, new attitude. Go Lumia!
  • The glance on my Lumia 920 has been buggy and I hoped this update would fix that. It would work ok a few days then it would stop working. When I powered off and on it would show for a fraction of a second then go away.
  • Why can't we have both text and notifications? Why Nokia?
  • The time and notifications are moving. Like on a screen saver they are now moving around up and down the screen. They stay in the same order they just go from bottom to top.
  • it won't work on my L720..
  • I have GDR3 (prev. for devolopers) on my L620 and now I have this and glance notifications... Is there any need too get the Lumia Black??? I mean, what would it change??
  • Same here. And you could get all the other black features. But for glance is not necessary.
  • 520 :(
  • Hey Gente yo Tengo Un lumia 820 y nada nada nada Que los mencionados Cambios, o es necesario q Tenga LUMIA NEGRO para Que la actualizacion tenga efecto.Agardecere Una Respuesta.
  • No changes on L620 glance (India)
  • Why am I now seeing my lock screen detailed status on the glance screen? I don't need that! Seems selecting 'Notifications' shows more information from the lock screen. I really don't like it.
  • I got glance screen notifications too in this update, and I haven't updated to black.
  • Nice. Other than the PIN aspect, if the future contained an option to double-tap from Glance straight past the increasingly redundant Lock-Screen to the Home Tiles , i would be very happy.  
  • i have a query i turned on the My text and always on for glance function, now my glance screen shows notifications for fb,whatsapp, battery status, alarm, and time. but my text times out after some time..how so..??
  • am i missing something from the post, because i couldn't find the way to add image to the lockscreen.
  • Yes you are missing something. Please use this app to put images on your Glance Screen: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/glance-background/7c3378ff-2844-480b-b2e2-783537201b84

Thwn after that, ibtried to download the game World at arms again, it starts even on mobile network! I dont know if that'vs the effect of update, is downloading 98MB via mobilee network new?
  • Love the new message feature in Glance. I've used it to put an "If found, please call (xxx)xxx-xxxx" message on my phone.
  • While installing the update for the latest version of glance screen, the screen blacked out. Thus i rebooted the phone. Then after starting i checked that the glance update has already been installed and is displaying in my settings section too. But when i click on the Glance option under settings i fails to open it. Please help me in solving this issue. I own a 720.
  • In my lumia720 the glance was not fully updated because in glance screen info lock screen notification Is not avialable...only text and off is there....any update is there.
