Video of the Amber update for the Lumia 920

Amber update for Nokia Lumia 920

The Nokia Lumia 925 launched with a slightly improved camera compared to the Nokia Lumia 920 and 928. That sixth lens does help, but it’s the software in the Lumia 925 that makes the biggest difference in improving the photo results. Don’t fret Lumia 920 and 928 owners, the Amber update from Nokia will help bring your camera up to par. Here’s a video of it on the Lumia 920.

The video shows off some of the cool features you’ll be getting with the Amber update. Things like always on clock, double tap to wake, the Nokia Smart Camera app, and more improvements throughout the phone. You can also flip your phone to silence it when a phone call is coming through. List view since you all like to scan and not read:

Amber – Lumia only update

  • Double tap to wake
  • Glance setting – Lockscreen clock feature
  • Flip to silence
  • New wallpapers (grab them here on SkyDrive)
  • Smart Camera app
  • Ability to set color profile for your screen

GDR2 – Windows Phone OS update

  • IBN Notes Traveler and Sina Weibo (China only) account integration
  • FM radio
  • More carriers with DataSense support
  • CalDAV and CardDav support

Another cool thing with Amber for Lumia devices is about that physical camera button on your phone. You’ll be able to set what happens when you press the physical camera button on your device. It’s always been that with any Windows Phone device it would open the stock camera app, but you’ll be able to set the Nokia Smart Camera app to open instead. That’s something we reported a few weeks back.

Which features above are you most looking forward to?

mpt15 says:

Is this all the gdr 2 and amber will bring or is there more?

Duffau says:

Could be it could be more. Dunno yet

Yaw Agyei1 says:

boxa72 says:

Yeah I'm on crack!! Absolutely filthy that they STILL haven't fixed "other" memory!! MS r u out of ur f#$@ing mind!!!

vslayer31 says:

The sad thing is wp7 cannot run wp8 coz they in diff kernels thats end of the road of wp7 but its worth it on 1st gen wp devices like my htc hd7 and thats why i dont upgrade to lumia 800 and 900 coz its the same software version i think now its worth it to upgrade to lumia 920

ajbdonug says:

It seems like I get different answers everytime I read another post about these updates. I recently got a Lumia 810. Will I get both updates?

Spedez says:

Depends if your carrier plays it nice.

Duffau says:

Tmobile EOLed that phone. And since they're the only carrier in the world that had it, I'd say updates are unlikely. Hopefully there will be other ways to update.

bpmurr says:

I thought GDR2 will also allow for wav playback?

Suden says:

Are these Updates will also for Nokia Lumia 620 .

Is an Amber exclusive ir part of GDR2 ?
Will HTC or Samsung have the option as well to launch their own Camera App (if there's one in the first place) ?
 
& Ohh , Flip To Mute is available on HTC devices , my 8X have it .

Josh Harman says:

It doesn't appear so.

AneticsUK says:

As much as i love my WP im getting a little sick of being light years behind Android and Apple, ive been a loyal MS phoner since the early days of WM5 and to say that WP is a backstep is an understatement, there are sooo many thing that wp CANT do that others can and im getting really tired of waiting for MS to catch up, i want to be able to stream media from network shares, i want VPN, i want PROPER mass storage device, i want a less restrictive development enviroment (yes i know why the security is there) but at least give me the option to turn it off, im due for an upgrade next year.... Let the countdown begin!

Josh Harman says:

You should have known the disadvantages of WP vs iPhone & Android, particularly if you been on the platform since WM5. Not sure what you're surprised about.

James Young6 says:

So out of Curiosity, with around 55,000 users so far voting for this, when is Microsoft going to fix the very simple issue of having custom text message tones? Or is this another silence no response thing? 
 
I have never known such an obvious and easy feature update to get so ignored.

When will this update be released for Lumia 720 (running on WP8)? Please Respond

Josh Harman says:

Depends on your carrier.

You mean "IBM" Notes Traveler, right?

Josh Harman says:

Yes. They fired their editor.

anoopkn says:

App installation on SD card still not possible?
That is the most wanted feature on my 820.

Still no screen rotate locks? Sh#t!
