I know this was mentioned in the thread about the update but everyone test this out. No new setting to enable this but my phone has been sitting next to me for about an hour with the screen off and cellular data off......and I got an email. So I have randomly been checking my phone and the wifi connection is definitely not disconnecting. Phone is not charging.
Been testing for over 2 hours. WiFi Is not disconnecting.

And I can confirm that it doesn't stay on. You guys probably aren't leaving the phone idle long enough for it to turn off (or you are charging so it doesn't turn off).
I just locked my phone for ~10 minutes and saw it reconnect

I wouldn't of titled the post what I did had I not confirmed my WiFi not shutting off like it has ever since 2010.
Did you install the newest update and reboot your phone?
That is all I did differently today.
Yesterday and even this morning my WiFi disconnected like normal.

Well I made no attempt to stream with cell data off before, but I thought this was the whole issue. Maybe I misunderstood the problem? What possible issues could there be with wifi shutting off if not in use? In response to PG2G I allowed it to stream for ~ 30 minutes.

http://wmpoweruser.com/warning-strea...stead-of-wifi/One langstanding bug/annoyance in Windows Phone is that it turns off WiFi when the screen is locked. Which means that if you start streaming Xbox Music during those several seconds that it takes the phone to reconnect to the WiFi network – right after unlocking the screen – it will use the mobile data connection. And ignore the WiFi connection.

If it took my wifi so long to reconnect that I could navigate to and start a stream before it completes I would be more concerned that perhaps I had a faulty wifi radio... What I've read peolple complain about is wifi disconnecting after screen sleep while streaming.

Wi-Fi isn't staying on for me, and considering that the update to make Wi-Fi stay on was an WP8 operating system update (as was detailed in a recent news post), and not an app update, I doubt that those who are experiencing Wi-Fi staying on is because of this random Nokia app update. Probably just a random occurance that keeps Wi-Fi connected, because we certainly don't know exactly under what conditions Wi-Fi decides to connect and reconnect.
