US-based tech giant Microsoft is all set to roll out the exciting updates to Windows Phone 8.1; however, the company accidentally showcased its release notes for Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1, otherwise known as Update 1, on its Developer Center.
The addition of app folders is among the upcoming changes. Meanwhile, it is also said that Cortana is also to be included into the phonebook, enabling users to trigger speech controls through a car’s navigation system. This feature is very beneficial for activating speech on handsets in cars that don’t support the feature via Bluetooth.
The update is also likely to bring in the added support for voice over a Wi-Fi connection, a very useful service for those who don’t have a lot of mobile minutes to spare.
The rumors also suggest that Microsoft is working towards preparing Windows Phone 8.1 for some of its biggest devices yet. The update is likely to provide support for screens measuring 6.01- to 7-inches in size with a WXGA resolution of 1280 x 768.
After the installation of the updates, Windows Phone 8.1 devices with 1280 x 800 WXGA resolution screens will also see the light of the day.
At present, there are no interactive covers or no 7-inch Windows Phone devices, but the latest updates suggest that they are likely to be available soon.
