Windows Phone 8 Update Details Revealed

An update to Windows Phone 8 should be out soon sporting messaging improvements, the ability to text replies to incoming callers, bandwidth-saving IE changes and favorite Wi-Fi connections, among other improvements not yet specified.



A How-To on the Windows Phone 8 site includes details of the next update (version 8.0.10211.204) for the operating system.

The release of the update will be staggered at different times by region, mobile operator and phone model.

Among the changes in the release are:

  • Messaging users will be able to add multiple recipients at the same time when sending a text message, save unsent messages as drafts, and edit received messages before forwarding them
  • Sent a predefined text message (e.g. "Busy now, will call back soon") to an incoming caller from the call answer screen
  • Configure Internet Explorer not to download images automatically, in order to save on data usage, and to delete selected sites from the browsing history
  • Windows Phone 8 will prioritize Wi-Fi connections based on your connection history

There will be other changes in the update, but they were not described.
