Nokia and Microsoft didn’t start at just launching new Windows 8 mobile OS and leaving old ones aside. They worked for them also. They come up with update Windows 7.8 and helped old users to get the feel of new adjustable tiles..
So, what are the new features..?
Two great new functions that come with this software update are Internet sharing (otherwise known as WiFi tethering) and flip-to-silence.
Internet sharing will allow you to share your mobile Internet connection over Wi-Fi with up to five other devices or computers. In effect, it turns your Nokia Lumia 800 or Nokia Lumia 710 into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.
As for flip-to-silence, well, you turn your phone face down, and all incoming phone calls and alerts will be silenced.
And some more Camera features. The video shows it all.. 🙂
Is it only three features..?? No..
– Contact Share lets you share and receive Business Cards by SMS
– Play To makes it possible for you to share pictures, videos and music from your Lumia smartphone to other DLNA –enabled devices on your home network. Play To is already available for all Lumia devices
– New options available on your lock screen, such as having a daily background image from Bing; plus there’s improved pocket and child lock screen security
– There is increased language support, meaning even more people get to enjoy Nokia Lumia.
and many more..
How to upgrade this..??
The Windows Phone 7.8 update is now rolling out for Nokia Lumia smartphones through February. Delivery of the update is operator dependent, meaning you will receive a notification in the coming weeks if you have an unlocked phone or if your operator has approved the update. If you don’t receive the update notification within the next three weeks, please contact your operator for more information.
In the meantime, you can ensure that you don’t miss out on the update, by checking that notifications are enabled on your phone. Go to Settings > Phone Update > “Notify me when new updates are found”.
