Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 Update 3 Official Changelog Released

Take a look at the changes that the new update would bring in the Windows Phone devices:


We've made several improvements for customers who are visually impaired.


Now you can easily free up storage space on your phone and manage temporary files. New categories show what's taking up space.

Driving Mode

Feeling distracted behind the wheel? Driving Mode allows you to minimize incoming calls and text messages to help you focus on the road.


Reading emails in bed? You can lock your screen orientation so it doesn't shift when you move your phone around.


Start preserving cellular data on your phone right out of the box-you can now connect to Wi-Fi during set up.

Internet sharing

Now you can use your phone's cellular data connection from your Microsoft Windows 8.1 devices by pairing them over Bluetooth. 


Several fixes were made to address known issues, and improvements were made to connection quality for Bluetooth accessories.


Do more with ringtones now. Assign ringtones for text messages, so you'll know who's texting you without even looking. Use your custom ringtones for more things-text messages, instant messages, emails, voicemail, and reminders. 

App switcher

Don't look back. Now you can use the App switcher to quickly close apps when you're finished with them.

Those who own a Nokia smartphone powered by Windows Phone are also eligible for additional improvements via "Nokia Black" update.
