WPCentral has received a number of tips from readers who have installed the Developer Preview version of Windows Phone 8.1 on their smartphones, telling us that they have a new update to download.. These reports are collaborated by similar reports in posts in our message board forums.
One tipster send us the screenshot of his update, shown above, which shows the versions numbers of what looks like two separate updates: 8.10.12400.899 and 8.10.14147.180. It would appear that the latter version numbers is in fact Update 1.
As we have reported before Update 1, also known as GDR 1, adds a few new features to Windows Phone 8.1. The biggest feature is Live Folders, which allows users to dynamically create folders on the Start screen. Other new features include the Apps Corner, SMS merge and forwarding and much more. It should also add Cortana support for the UK and China, and India, Australia, and Canada residents can check out the US version of Cortana officially for the first time.
What do you think of Microsoft releasing Update for Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview users and if you are one of them, what do you think of the new features and improvements.
Thanks to all of our readers who tipped us!
