Windows Phone 8.1 brings a wealth of new features and improvements to the table. Some of these changes are meant to bring Windows Phone more in-line with Windows 8. The more closely the two operating systems resemble each other, the easier it is for users to transition between phone, tablet, and PC. And of course, any such changes would qualify as improvements even if you?ve never touched a Windows 8 device. Microsoft is simply smart enough to pick and choose better implementations where they see them.
One such change comes with Windows Phone 8.1?s new and improved search feature. The Search button and Cortana app (US only) now searches not only the web for queries but also the user?s actual phone (much like Windows 8 and RT). This makes it easier than ever to find specific information and files on your phone. Even the actual web search results share a cleaner, slicker look as well. Head past the break to see how convenient searching can be on Windows Phone 8.1.
