    I want FB messages back in the messaging hub!
    And I want games GONE from my app list!
    Sigh, so many **** changes away from what Windows Phone was supposed to be - i.e. it's no longer task-centric and is now all about apps. FFS.

    That function is not gone, but the access to it has changed. Now, you get to it via the camera. It is now a "lens" called Bing Vision. So, open your camera (Nokia or Microsoft). In Nokia Camera, click the ellipsis and select "lenses." then Bing Vision. If you are using the Microsoft Camera app, there is a "lens" icon in the viewfinder or, if not, you can hit the ellipsis to have it show up there. Once there, select it then, Bing Vision. Unfortunately, Bing Vision does not show up in the app list so you cannot pin it and must access it through the lens function of the Camera app. Sorry, I have neither an HTC nor a Samsung to tell you how - if - it is implemented through their own camera software.

    I liked the integration when it worked but the writing was on the wall with the standalone Facebook and FB messenger apps. It's not coming back. What I would rather they do is just open the messaging hub to any app to use. Being integrated ties it too much to OS updates coming from carriers, using apps lets them be a lot more flexible.

    Wasn't this posted here as a news article some time ago that this would happen because of the changes to FB and the updates to the FB app?

    What do you get if you use the old combination of Windows (Start/Home) key and Power?

    Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere but you can no longer pinch out on a picture in the gallery and quickly scroll through your pictures like a carousel.

    Is the Xbox Music artists live tile dead? Every time I play an album with artists background it does not work.

    Well, add that to the list of my favorite features that got unnecessarily f***ed...

    The moveable cursor for editing text, the Recent and New tabs of Xbox Music Hub, Notifications tab from Me tile, ability to swipe through tracks in Now Playing (much easier than pressing a tiny button when driving)...

    On the plus side, I managed to convince Cortana to call me Motherf***er Jones... :D

    Just realised that it is no longer possible to swipe left/right in the music player to go the next/previous song. Why?

    The nice visually stimulating rubber band bounce effect when you quickly reach the top or bottom of the start screen has been significantly reduced especially in 2 column mode. You can still make the tiles/app list warp with your finger but the bounce when you reach the end is now like a jerky thud. Lame.

    Aw shucks. I also liked the "original hub" where all other music and video apps were grouped together for easy access.

    II preferred the old music app. New one has no live tile, no way to check the store for new releases in a genre, and artist pic on lock screen doesn't work:(

    Where did this happen.. please don't say 6snap cause that's the problem with the code as its coded for the old config..Our trusty rudy should update that soon though.. I've used this combo on my Lumia 1020 and it works perfectly (power and Volume up).

    Another nice touch that was removed in 8.1 is when you began installing an app from the Store it immediately took you to the app list so you would know where it will be once fully installed. Now nothing happens and you have to exit the Store and hunt for the app in the app list afterwards. :sigh::

    I actuallly like the new sound. Its not too loud and a bit shorter than the original. That's how a charging sound should be because when you plug your phone to charge, you are very near to it. Even just a beep would be enough.

    What do you mean? Its much better. Once the apps are updated to support 8.1, the notifications will be even better.
