Last month Microsoft finally unveiled Windows Phone 8.1. Soon after the initial announcement, Microsoft’s software developer released a preview of the new software. A month has passed since the preview was released and today the company released the first Windows Phone 8.1 developer preview update.
One of the cool things about the Preview for Developers is the direct feedback loop it creates among the savviest of user communities. We’ve received a ton of great feedback so far on what people like about Windows Phone 8.1, and some things we can improve. To that end, we’re happy to announce that starting today we’re delivering an update to the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers (build number 8.10.12382.878). This update includes several improvements based on the feedback we’ve received, and we’re happy to be rolling it out after just one month.
Joe Belfiore tweeted when it went live,
If you already have the preview installed, go to settings then updates and check for updates and viola, it’s not a big update, and I suspect that the benefits to battery life will not be immediately evident. If you find some big changes or minute, let us know in the comments.
