Nokia updates Display + Touch and Extras + Info apps for Lumia line

It’s been a busy day for Nokia today as they have released dual updates for their Display + Touch and Extras + Info system apps for their Windows Phone 8 Lumias. The two updates are now live in the store, but are very fresh meaning it may take a short while before you can grab them.

Display + Touch, which controls the super sensitivity, Lumia Color Profile (GDR2 only), double tap to wake (GDR2 only) and the Glance features (GDR2 only) and more does have a change log, though we’re not sure it’s up to date exactly. The update notes that it adds “support for quick mode in Glance Settings” though under ours, all we see is the previous Off/Peek/Timed/Always On options, so we’re unclear is this is refining the feature or we’re just missing something.

Regardless, it’s always smart to have the latest version, which is now version 1.6.2.23 of Display + Touch.

Likewise, the other big update is with Extras + Info. That update of course is the big one for devices with GDR2 (OS build 10327 or later) on board as it enables the much ballyhooed Call + SMS Block feature, which we covered in an earlier article. That addition, which was enabled by Microsoft’s new API extension in GDR2, allows OEMs to create this feature on their devices and evidently, Nokia was the first to roll it out on a grand scale.

Even if you don’t have GDR2, it might not hurt to have the latest, which is now version 1.11.4.101, since it does affect other system settings.

Those with Nokia Lumia devices and Windows Phone 8 can pick up Display + Touch here and Extras + Info here in the Nokia Collection. Optionally, you can scan the QR code below or swipe to the right in our app.

Ah GDR2 update... Where Verizon won't see the update till next year.

Still waiting on T-Mobile myself.

Just showed up for me on my TMo 925...call blocking is there

tbonenga says:

Where do you find that ability? I updated my 925 on Tmo but I can't find that option.

manonthemoon says:

Phone then press three dots in lower right hand corner and select blocked calls.

tbonenga says:

Thanks, I appreciate the help.

Meant gdr2. I got these 2 updates earlier.

Justin5267 says:

I know I really hope I can update my Lumia 928 soon but I'm not holding my breath.

felickz says:

I think they have until dec31 before we get really pissed off that Gmail stops working

I'm in New York City, and I'm a Verizon customer. Proud owner of the Lumia 928. My update was available as of 9:00am thank you very much!

psiu_glen says:

Do you mean the GDR 2 update, or the updates for these two settings/apps?

Just the updates for the two apps.

clappenings says:

Update done! Still holding onto a glimmer of hope for GDR2 sometime in the next millenium :-O

Mark Cesari says:

How about an update on the AU release of GDR2 for unlocked phones? (920)

cybermoose89 says:

Hope we get this on the 920 real soon !

Done updating!...

Tyetus says:

Still waiting for the GDR2, AT&T

Yep just waiting...

syang87 says:

Still waiting...

inteller says:

you can forget anything soon, if ever, from the "dreadful partner"

irvin792 says:

The Death Star will get it out. Just like they shocked everyone how fast the Portico update was, everybody just likes to b!tch. In due time everyone, the amber update wasn't ready, that isn't att's fault, and I'm not gonna blame Nokia either, sh!t happens.

Josh Harman says:

Pessimistic, whinny, annoying, off topic, update fiends.

jlynnm350z says:

Waaaaaaa,waaaaaaaa,waaaaaaa

Niavlys77 says:

Hope GDR2 comes to the Rogers L920 soon!

Bogdan V says:

got extras info and another update..i dont rememer exactely but i think was touch today without amber on 720

OscarMaDi says:

On extras +info, next to "software release", my Lumia 820 just shows a black space, nothing on it. Am I the only one? I supposed there should show "Lumia portico" or something similar.

JackMerson says:

No. You are not alone. Guess it will show for Amber update and so on, but not before the Amber.

PurpleOmen says:

I don't even have the 'software release' L920

@Daniel... I believe "Peek" is the new setting. Because it makes it where its off until you wave your hand in front of it or pull it out of your pocket (Glance mode).

When I bought my Lumia 925 on the 4th it didn't have that feature. I got these updates your speaking of a couple days ago and I seen "Peek" for the first time.

I could be wrong? Maybe there's another update after the one I had gotten a couple days ago? Maybe that one was old?

gravage says:

Good Guy Nokia: Keeping Windows Phone 8 competitive, even if Microsoft won't.

panagiotisgr says:

well i suppose we all waiting for that amber update... i need the radio on my L920 badly. vocations starting tommorow 

Me too,Panos..waiting here in Gr anxiously for update to show up in my Italian unlocked 920 too...

hellodav7 says:

this is frustrating not having app updates working.
I had a crack that started to develop on the back of my red 920 so they gave me another and now ever since I've restored the back up to this new phone I don't get notified of app updates.
 

Hoekie says:

Peek is new. At least it is on my GDR2 Lumia 820.

warmth says:

Nokia Care also got update.

CDiS99 says:

Um, dumb question...
I updated the apps, but where can I find them. (Excuse my naivity, I've my 928 for 3 days.)

Alphageek_UK says:

Got into Settings and scroll to the bottom.

CDiS99 says:

Ah, I see it now. Thanks :).

mma2885 says:

Everytime you update, go to the bottom

phonohead says:

Got these updates an hour ago, but still no GDR2. Norway, unlocked.

Doniam9 says:

actually Samsung ATIV S launched with call and text blocking features

Spedez says:

Without GDR2? Interesting...

This worked for my new 1020. Thanks for the info and QR codes Daniel.

raycpl says:

Just got this in Malaysia....

Yakko Warner says:

extras+info won't update for me; I keep getting "There is a problem completing your request. Try again later. Error code: c101a029"
Still don't have GDR2 anyway; T-Mobile 810.  Don't know why everyone complains about AT&T being slow with the updates; I've always seen the complaints stop and the rollouts begin on AT&T long before my T-Mobile phone is updated.

hwalker84 says:

You have to have GDR2 for this update. 

Yakko Warner says:

The article would seem to disagree with you there:
 

Even if you don’t have GDR2, it might not hurt to have the latest, which is now version 1.11.4.101, since it does affect other system settings.

 
In any case, my phone just downloaded and installed it on its own, so I guess it's all good now.

 

jlynnm350z says:

Great, everything but the actual update.

Ed Boland says:

Dear AT&T,

May I have my GDR2/Amber update please?

Thanks!

Ed

lubbalots says:

I just don't understand the secrecy.

No updates from Vodafone as well. Branded phones suck, my 800 was unbranded, and I always had the updates almost immediately, after they were made available.

hwalker84 says:

Lumia 1020 here. It installed but after rebooting instead of Call+SMS Filter I got some strange
"@C:\Data\Programs\{c45994......"

I'm assumin since they updated display+touch, that we will see the GDR2 update REAL soon. At&T 920

EngineerTuna says:

i guess not. it all depends on what carrier distributed your lumia. luckly i ll get amber like 2014

But why release the updates now?
Seems like there's something going on behind the scenes.

EngineerTuna says:

Maybe its for us (branded phones) that ll get update far far away from others?

Ignotum666 says:

Works great on my Lumia 920 :D

Very good :) (nokia lumia 925).

WP8sNewest says:

I got the update and still didn't get the glance feature on my 928:(

lubbalots says:

Ok where is GDR2 for Att?

ETjon says:

The new feature is "Peek"!

Nazmi Lao says:

I really love the fact that Nokia/Microsoft has consistent updates to the apps... I only wish that there is a way to manually check for updates for my apps as opposed to waiting for the Store tile to may or may not pop out a number to signify updates...
