Nokia has released a short film to show off some of the new features included in the Amber update which is currently rolling out to customers. Bundled with Windows Phone 8 GDR2 from Microsoft, Nokia has been able to add numerous enhancements and improvements to features and functionality boasted by Lumia hardware.
We've gone into some detail as to what's available in both updates, so be sure to check out our previous coverage. Should you require reminding, Windows Phone 10327 (GDR2) is a minor OS update that brings FM radio, some enhancements to Xbox Music, WAV file playback for voicemail, fixed Other storage, and other minor bug fixes in addition to enabling the new hardware found in the Lumia 1020.
Nokia’s bundled Amber update (highlighted in the above video), which is what is causing the delays for release, allows the new Glance screen, flip to silence, Lumia Color Profile and an improved camera experience, making the combo of an update quite interesting for consumers. So who's getting the Amber update? See below:
It's worth noting the Lumia 625, Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020 are not listed because GDR2 and Amber are both pre-loaded. If you're yet to receive the update, head on over to Settings > Phone Update and hit "Check for updates" to see if you're next in line. Nokia has stated they expect to have the update rolled out successfully by the end of September so don't freak out if you've not yet got the notification.
