Nokia Cyan and Windows Phone 8.1 get pushed out to Nokia Lumia users with Windows Phone 8
Starting today, Nokia Lumia users with Windows Phone 8 should start receiving the Nokia Cyan update exclusive to Lumia owners, and the update to Windows Phone 8.1. For those in the U.S., that means they will have virtual personal assistant Cortana at their side. Available only in the U.S. for now, Cortana will be available globally sometime in the second half of the year

Changes include more features for business users, such as Office for Windows Phone. The update also opens up a third column of tiles, and the ability to have a custom background on the start screen. Apps can be saved to a microSD card, opening up native memory on your device. The Nokia camera will also be receiving some changes thanks to the Nokia Cyan update, including enhanced low-light capabilities on some models like the Nokia Lumia 1520 and the Nokia Lumia Icon; those two models will be able to employ Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound when shooting video. For Lumia owners, the Nokia Storyteller app will be available after the update is installed, allowing them to create a story with a video slideshow, that can be send to social media.

You will also find a new Action Center for notifications, and the Swype-like "Word Flow" for the QWERTY keyboard. IE 11 will save and remember passwords, and will also support HTML5 for YouTube playback. Earlier this year, we compiled a list of changes expected with the update. Nokia promised to send out the update to all Lumia handsets running Windows Phone 8, from the entry-level Nokia Lumia 520, to the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet.

The update will be rolling out OTA and if you don't get it immediately, be patient. You can also try to pull it out manually by going to Settings > Phone update. And let us know when you receive Nokia Cyan and Windows Phone 8.1 by leaving us a comment below.

Still nothing. This sucks. I think when it comes to OTA update roll outs they need to prioritize people who try to initiate a manual request for update. Obviously the people who are manually initiating it are more interested in having an up to date phone than some random user who couldn't care less when the update rolls out.

I was able to wait patiently while other people installed the developer preview. Now that they've announced the actual roll out, I can't hit refresh enough and yet I think I should be braced for a wait longer than I want.

Guess, I still need to wait, hopefully not for long, for my 920. I really have an issue with the cellular data make my phone hot. So, any browsing activities will drain my battery really quick. I hope, the firmware update can help ease the burden.

I played with the DP, and it was nice.There are still a few of my apps I would like to see, and no Clash of Clans hurts, but the OS finally has started to close the gap with iOS and Android. Now all that remains is some good handsets to run it.

And before any of you for others attacks the handset comment, I just sold my 925 this weekend, and it was nice, but not new enough. The 1520 was okay, but way too big, and the 930/Icon is a compromise device. That phone should have been the 1520 in the Icon chassis, and there is no excuse for the newest WP flagship to be a step back from last year's 1520.

I'm here in Southeast Asia... both my phones, the 625 and the 925, have downloaded and installed Cyan just 30 minutes ago. They were already on DP WP8.1 so my phones just needed the Cyan update.

I have been using the beta 8.1 for about 8 weeks and love it. I've received 3 updates I believe during that time and they just keep getting better. I'm curious if the final version is a update over my current version and if I'll have to do anything unique before I get the final release version?
