The new Nokia “Cyan” update along with Windows 8.1 has begun rolling out to Lumia devices today.

The update brings a number of key features which we saw before including, the Cortana personal digital assistant, customizable Live Tiles, support for virtual buttons, and a new Action Center.  The other features include the Word Flow keyboard, Wi-Fi Sense and an improved Internet Explorer 11 browser.  

Microsoft, showing their commitment to the Lumia brand also announced that the  update will also improve existing Nokia apps such as Nokia Camera, Creative Studio and Storyteller. Nokia Device Hub, also included in the Cyan update, helps you track down a missing accessory by showing you where you last used it. You’ll also get recommendations for apps that you can use with that accessory. 

Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon users to get bonus updates

Nokia Lumia 1520 and Icon devices will now have extended support with Rich Recording and will also come with Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 audio. There have also been improvements made to the camera. The update will give the camera more robust features such improved colors and low-light performance, continuous autofocus and improvements to RAW DNG images.

The update is rolling out to users in North America for now but is expected to roll out globally in the coming weeks.
