Not available for my old WP7 device :(

That's because it's an update for WP8, not WP7.

 

I haven't installed it and I don't plan to either. I'm fine with waiting for my carrier to release the update when it's ready. I have GDR2 installed on my HTC 8S and I'm happy with the improvements they made so far. It's nice to finally have FM radio on my phone. I haven't had that feature since 2010.

I ran into some Bluetooth issues with the update. (Lumia 925)

Before, XBox Music and Spotify showed the music title on my car stereo.

Now they don't. :(

Also Spotify sometimes refuses to resume a song when connected via bluetooth.

Sometimes my In-Car Media Controls (at the steering wheel) don't work.

Today my car tried to connect for about 10 minutes to my Lumia although they were already connected and the music was playing.

 

Before the update all of those things worked flawlessly.

Of course I deleted the devices in my car and lumia bluetooth and repaired them, but that didn't help either.

 

Everything else runs fine so far.

I have a Samsung ATIV S Neo and tried both methods (installing the app and cert and also using the SDK developer unlock method). My device still says no update available.

Make sure you are having latest GDR2 version running as mentioned.

Hey you forgot to list Lumia 720!

No problem as yet, but I feel the phone has become slightly faster. The slight stutter is gone, and the experience is smoother.

I found a small change though. When entering the URL in IE, the keyboard appears and the refresh button placed there is now gone while entering the URL, which I felt previously was a waste of space. Now it appears only when you are not typing.

No issues except close apps doesn't work as I expected. For example if I have pandora running in background and close it via multi-tasking UI, I can still hit play on the music controls to listen to music.

That is how it is always been, basically the app and the music are 2 different services. So your just closing out the app interface, to close the music you can wait, restart the device or get a Stop music app.

Not that I know of, the engine is still the same but they've probably fixed bugs and tweaked performance.   Have to wait for WP 8.1 to get IE11 it seems.

you only need your account registered as an developer and to download the app. no cert or such needed for the update.

I installed it pretty much right away when I got the phone so I an't tell if there's anything that works differently, but everything seems to work fine, with one exception.

 

I can't send facebook messages from the messenger. it's set up and linked correctly on my MS account and it's activated in the messages settings. but I can only send SMS'.

Before the year is over, they'll want to get the new 1320 and 1520 out to market first with them and then shortly after that is my guess.

Are you logged in with the primary alias of your MS account? I had the same issue.

My account doesn't have any separate aliases, well it might have one, I'm not sure, away back it was "linked"with another one I think, but this one is the primary in any case.

A curios thing though, how comes play to isn't built into WP8, the way MS has it integrated into windows I was surprised to find it wasn't in WP now, and I needed a Nokia play to app which is completely separate and can't be called from the sharing or app menu in the other apps like gallery.

I'm surprised as well, I hope they build that into WP8.1 so you can at least use it to push music/video/pictures to Windows 8.1 and Xbox.

If you have a Nokia device, you can download the "Play To" Beta.

 

It should give you playback to most devices. XBox probably not due to MS being retards with the way they deployed the service -_-

      Samsung Galaxy S10 One UI 3 public beta program now live
      by Rajesh Pandey



      Samsung has started the One UI 3 and Android 11 beta program for the Galaxy S10 series (via SamMobile). The company has already been running the One UI 3.0 beta program for the Galaxy S20 and Note20 series for the last few weeks. It had also launched the beta program for the Galaxy Z Flip but had to pull the initial firmware due to high battery drain issues.

      For now, Samsung has launched the One UI 3 beta program for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ in India, South Korea, and the United Kingdom, though there's a possibility that the program is expanded to more regions within the next day or two.

      You can check if the One UI 3 beta program for the Galaxy S10 series is available in your region or not and then join the program using the Samsung Members app.

      Samsung has been aggressively rolling out One UI 3 beta firmware builds for the Galaxy S20 and Note20 series signaling that a stable rollout is around the corner. For the Galaxy S10 series, the One UI 3 update is expected to hit the stable channel by the end of this year or early next year.

      One UI 3 is based on Android 11 and comes with a number of UI changes including a streamlined Settings menu, updated Phone app, revamped notification shade, and more. You can read more about One UI 3 features here.

      Fourth One UI 3 beta build for the Samsung Galaxy S20 series brings camera improvements
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Samsung has begun rolling out the fourth Android 11-based One UI 3 beta build for Galaxy S20 users enrolled in the beta program. While the changelog for the update does not explicitly mention any specific enhancements, folks over at SamMobile report that the changes include improvements to the Space Zoom feature that leads to clearer images at the 100x digital zoom level on the S20 Ultra and a new UI for the screen resolution picker.

      The South Korean giant debuted the Space Zoom feature with the Galaxy S20 Ultra which was made possible by the periscope camera that debuted in the device. The latest update seems to improve the performance of the camera by making text in images more legible at higher zoom levels, in addition to other overall enhancements.

      Along with the camera improvements, another small change comes in the way of a new UI for the screen resolution setting (spotted by a user in XDA Developers’ forums) that now offers a preview of a cropped section of an image to denote the difference between the resolution options.

      The fourth beta is beginning to roll out to users in Germany first but is expected to devices in more markets sooner than later. You can head to Setting > Software update > Download and install to check if you have the update ready to be served to your S20 enrolled in the beta program.

      Samsung is expected to roll out One UI 3 to the S20 series by the end of this month. With the release nearing launch, it is less likely to see any major changes make it to the Android 11-based skin. Major changes being made to the skin include improvements to the UI, in-box apps, smarter Bixby routines, and much more. You can head here to check out our overview of the top features in One UI 3.

      Galaxy Note20 series One UI 3 beta with Android 11 registrations now open in the US
      by Rajesh Pandey



      Samsung has started accepting applications for the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra's One UI 3 beta program in the United States. The company had launched the public beta program for the Galaxy S20 lineup in the United States earlier this month.

      As of now, Samsung is only accepting applications from Galaxy Note20 or Note20 Ultra owners who have the Sprint, T-Mobile, or the unlocked variant of the device. If you want to try out the upcoming One UI 3 update on your Note20 now, you should send your application to Samsung using the Samsung Members app. The slots are limited so if you are interested, send your application as quickly as possible.



      The first public beta One UI 3/Android 11 build for the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra should start rolling out in the coming days as well. Whenever the build does land though, it won't be too different from the One UI 3 build that's already available for the Galaxy S20 series in the United States.

      Samsung is debuting a number of new features in One UI 3 including improved widget support in Always-on Display mode, enhanced Samsung Keyboard and Internet app with new features, more powerful Bixby Routine, and more.

      Samsung should expand the One UI 3/Android 11 beta testing program for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note20 to other countries like India, Germany, Poland, China, the United Kingdom, and more.

      Samsung Galaxy S20's One UI 3.0 public beta program launching soon
      by Rajesh Pandey



      Samsung detailed its One UI 3.0 skin earlier this month and then opened a pre-beta for developers shortly after. Now, a beta manager in Samsung's community forum in South Korea has confirmed that Samsung will soon start the One UI 3.0 public beta test for the Galaxy S20 series.

      While the beta manager did not mention any date, it is likely that we will see the first One UI 3.0 beta for the Galaxy S20, S20+, and the S20 Ultra launch in the first half of October. The company has already confirmed that the One UI 3.0 public beta program will be available in South Korea, the United States, China, Germany, India, Poland, and the United Kingdom.

      One UI 3.0 comes with enhanced system apps, an improved permissions manager, smarter Bixby Routine with additional conditions and trigger options, and more. You can find the change-log of the developer beta of One UI 3.0 here.

      Going by Samsung's previous track record, the company will likely start the One UI 3.0 public beta program for the Galaxy Note20 series within weeks of the program launching for the Galaxy S20 series as well.

      To join the One UI 3.0 public beta program, Galaxy S20 owners will have to use the Samsung Members app. The program will have limited slots so make sure to join it as soon as it goes live in your region.

      Marvel's Avengers PC version features and system requirements released
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The Marvel's Avengers title that's being developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal is only a month away from releasing, and prospective PC players finally received word today on what sort of hardware does the game require to get a smooth experience. Plus, PC specific features were also detailed today.

      Here are the minimum and recommended system requirements, which paints a rather well-optimized experience:

      Moreover, a 30GB optional high-resolution texture pack will be made available to all PC players from day one, which should account for the higher space requirements in the recommended specification. Describing the texture pack, the developer said that while using it, "forests will feel lusher, the tundra more frigid, and AIM facilities all the more sinister to really bring the experience to life."

      Ultra-wide resolution and multi-monitor display support were also confirmed, alongside unlocked frame rates and configurable keyboard and mouse controls.

      PC players will be able to jump into the upcoming three-day beta weekends on Steam - which come with access to single-player and co-op missions - starting from August 14 for pre-order owners, while the open beta will kick-off on August 21. Participants will even be able to download and test out the high-resolution texture pack during the beta. More information regarding the beta can be found on this FAQ page set up by the developer.
