Microsoft posts Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update info

On the Windows Phone 8 Update History page Microsoft has posted a list of features users can expect in Windows Phone 8.0.10327.77 or 8.0.10328.78, better known as the GDR2 update.

The list does not include any surprises, except possible that we can expect improvements in both Skype, Internet Explorer and Xbox Music which we have not noticed so far on the Nokia Lumia 925.

See the updates detailed after the break.


Update 8.0.10327.77 or 8.0.10328.78*

Xbox Music. It’s now easier to select, download, and pin music. Plus, music fans will see more accurate metadata (such as song and album information) and many other performance improvements.

FM radio. Listen to FM radio right from the Music+Videos hub. (Not available for all phones.)
