We’ve had an amazing response to the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers we began delivering one month ago today. Developers (and enthusiasts) have been putting the software through its paces and giving us great feedback. People are loving the new features like Cortana, Action Center, and the Word Flow keyboard with shape writing. We’ve managed to make the world’s most personal smartphone even better, and folks are pretty stoked. Thanks to all of you who have been participating in the preview and telling us about your experience.
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.
If you are on the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers and want to get the update, go to Settings then Phone Update and click “check for updates”.
Thanks again for your interest in Windows Phone, and as always – let us know what you think!
