Verizon has started rolling out Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 for the Lumia 928 and Lumia 822. Among the other features of Update 1, the 928 and 822 owners are also getting access to Cortana. Better yet, this update will also take both phones onto the latest Lumia Denim software, which is currently pushing out to other Lumia phones all around the world.
In addition to Cortana, the Lumia 928 and 822 are receiving a number of features that came to other phones with Windows Phone 8.1.1. These include things like background images on Live tiles, the Word Flow keyboard, Action Center, and more.
Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 itself brings some new user-facing features, including native app folder creation on the Start screen, as well as support for interactive phone covers. Update 1 also contains several performance improvements and fixes.
You can download Update 1 on your device manually by going to Settings > Phone Updates, although the actual update may not come until later today. Stay tuned.
