    I'm not sure if this is new to Windows Phone 8.1 Update or if it's just new to UK users, but after updating my Calendar app now searches for locations as you type in the "location" field. It definitely didn't do this before yesterday in my phone!

    Here is a screenshot:

    Maybe it is somehow connected to Cortana... BTW I'm from Israel

    Yeah, it might be because of Cortana. I'm from the UK and it only started working after the update.

    This is not working for me on 8.1 Update. L1520 in UK on EE.

    Do I need to do something to enable it? It seems like a very useful addition to the calendar.

    EDIT: I checked in calendar settings and the checkbox for "Use my location to show the weather and suggested places" is ticked.

    Not a MS spokesperson but if intelligence serves us correctly what we should understand that MS is trying to build us an OS that we can be proud of and it's not like we're out here alone, there's plenty of competition. As a result MS is trying to give us the most features it can in comparison to IOS and Android. With that there will be complications in the beginning but with what users are reporting from different devices around the world, just take in that when all is well and right with MS's WP OS how jealous will the IOS and Android users be??? I don't have WP8.1 or the update to 8.1 as yet but with all that I'm reading I can't wait til I do get it, because as I see it the longer I take to get the WP8.1 Upgrade the closer the OS will be to bug fixes,performance updates and feature upgrades. So though I have a 2 yr old device right now with what it has on WP8 alone compared to what the BBZ10's, GS4/5's, Iphone 4/5's that my workmates have right now, I have the BEST of the lot!!! I get more information by looking at my screen ALONE than they do from theirs. When I get WP8.1 and put the various wallpapers I'm thinking of using it will again BLOW them away from a visual point of view as well. Just here loving the WP8 more and more, but it's just the wait that's hard especially being notified each day of some NEW trick that the WP8.1 GDR1 is bringing to the table each week. If GDR1 is doing all of this what will GDR2 do to these phones???

    Doesn't work here. In the Calendar Settings you can see the note about requiring location services to enable this, but not working on AT&T.

    Yes, I have that option ticked. I've tried it again and it's working, I can't possibly the only one with this feature activated!

    For what is worth, I had to flash the phone's software using the Nokia Recovery Tool (I've got a Lumia 920 in the UK on EE) since I was one of those who got the error trying to install Update 1. But I can't imagine how that would explain this situation.

    US, T-Mobile, Lumia 925, 8.1 GDR 1, Preview for Developers. Cortana enabled and in use since day 1 of Beta, Calendar allowed to use location...

    I have location search when setting appointments via Calender App.

    ​I noticed it the other day and never realized it wasn't always there until I just read this thread.

    So the difference being you are using a carrier branded, unlocked phone off the network it was branded to...

    ​Possible clue?
