Microsoft has today announced that Windows Phone 8.1 and the Nokia Lumia Cyan update will begin rolling out globally for all Nokia Lumia devices starting today. Windows Phone 8.1 includes brand new features which make your device even more operable, such as a notifications center, more tiles on the Start Screen and much much more.
Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan rollout for Nokia Lumia devices starts today, and will hit devices over the coming weeks. To check if you’ve got the update, open the Settings app and navigate to Phone update, tap check for updates and cross your fingers.
Lumia Cyan includes an Enhanced Nokia Camera, Updated Storyteller app, and the new Nokia Devices Hub, as well as many more tweaks and additions. Windows Phone 8.1 is the main cake with this update, as it makes the operating system way more comparable to the likes of Android and iOS.
Windows Phone 8.1 for devices which are not Nokia branded is yet to see the light, but since the rollout has now begun, we imagine more OEM’s will jump aboard the Windows Phone 8.1 bandwagon.
Update: The Lumia 625 and 925 are receiving the Lumia Cyan update globally right now! You can also monitor availability of the update. Thanks for the tips, everyone!Further reading: Lumia Cyan, Windows Phone 8.1
