After months of endless speculation there is good news for Windows Phone users who have a Lumia device. Since majority of the WP devices out there are Lumias today’s announcement concerns the bulk of WP’s user base. It has finally been announced today that the Lumia Cyan Windows Phone 8.1 update has been released. Not only does it bring Windows Phone 8.1 which was unveiled earlier this year but exclusive features for the Lumia lineup as well.
Last week we did report that the Cyan update with Windows Phone 8.1 was being released in select markets. That was probably a small scale test of the roll out procedure. Now evidently the update is ready for primetime and has been released for all supported Lumia smartphones out there.
All Lumia smartphones that run Windows Phone 8 are supported so the update will be available for all of them. The company has said that this update starts rolling out today and in a few weeks time will cover all WP8 Lumia devices across the globe.
Windows Phone 8.1 brings the digital assistant Cortana, a new Word Flow keyboard, a notification center and a lot more. Lumia Cyan updates includes an app that collects data for fitness services, Bluetooth 4.0 LE support, miracast support as well as improved camera algorithms that improve camera performance on the Lumia Icon, Lumia 1520 and the Lumia 930.
Since the update is rolled out in stages it may take a while for it to go live across all countries. Rest assured though it going to land on your device soon enough.
