Nokia Cyan and Windows Phone 8.1 get pushed out to Nokia Lumia users with Windows Phone 8

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.

The biggest news will be when my 1520, yes my specific 1520, gets the Cyan update... That's all that matter in technology right now.

Nope!... Only this one right here.. Only mine, sorry... ............ As a matter of fact, my 1520 is the only one that will be getting the Cyan update, and all others will be recalled.... Did I say sorry?.... Oh. Oh, yes I did...

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.
