The first Windows Phone 8 major update has finally reached AT&T customers who own the HTC 8X.
WinSource reports that the update is now rolled out OTA (over the air) in waves, which means that not all HTC 8X users will receive it simultaneously.
According to Microsoft, Portico adds the following new features and improvements:
- Messaging improvements: users can now add multiple recipients at the same time when they send a text message and automatically save unsent text messages as drafts.
- Text replies to incoming calls: users can now send a pre-written text reply to a caller directly from the call answer screen.
Several Internet Explorer improvements have been added as well, such as the option to change settings to prevent pictures from downloading automatically. Users will also be able to delete selected sites from browsing history and leave the rest intact.
In order to manually push the update to the smartphone, simply head over to Settings / Phone update. If it’s not available, you might want to try again later.
